"Ashwin Navin, former president and co-founder of BitTorrent Inc. has left the company after four years. Thus far, the company hasn’t been a great success, but the BitTorrent protocol is more alive than ever. Now he can talk more freely, we ask Ashwin about his view on the future of BitTorrent, piracy and online media."
"Navin, who stays involved with BitTorrent as a board member, will start a new venture with a couple of friends including YouTube’s Steve Chen. Their goal is to support new tech startups in the San Fransisco area, and provide them with office space where they can work on their ideas.
His position as president of BitTorrent never held Navin back much.
