Submission + - TV Broadcasters Experimenting with BitTorrent

ernesto99 writes: Tomorrow a new version of the Tribler BitTorrent client will be released at a seminar of European TV bosses Geneva. Tribler is a Bittorrent client which aims to grow into a Youtube-like solution for Internet TV with torrent recommendations, search capabilities without webservers, and friends. The public TV broadcasters in the EU are currently defining a standard for P2P. They decided that this standard needs to be Open Source and preferably created non-profit organizations like universities.

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
