Back in the dotcom days I used to write and speak about peer-to-peer (P2P) technology; I gave a presentation about characterizing P2P infrastructure (slides) at the first O'Reilly P2P Conference in February 2001. I wrote up some notes from Bill Joy's keynote and took a few photos.
At the O'Reilly P2P & Web Services Conference in November 2001 I gave part of the Introduction to Collaborative Computing tutorial and moderated the lively Circumventing Firewalls and NAT panel. I have notes from Nov. 5, 6, 7, and 8 and a bunch of photos from the conference.
My most recent presentation was at the Collaborative Computing in Higher Education: Peer-to-Peer and Beyond workshop, January 30-31, 2002 in Tempe, Arizona. For a while I was involved in the UT CS P2P Study Group and I still keep an eye on vaarious mailing lists to try to make the P2P future stronger, faster, and safer.
As of mid 2003 the latest thing I am participating in is the Internet Research Task Force's P2P Research Group.
