I saw a link to this article
on Shacknews today.
|Out of the blue, he heard from Gabe Newell, the managing director of Valve Software, based in nearby Bellevue, Wash. [...] "When we looked around to see who was doing the most interesting work in this space, Bram's progress on BitTorrent really stood out," Mr. Newell said. "The distributed publishing model embedded in BitTorrent is exactly the kind of thing media companies need to build on for their own systems."|
Heh. Not too suprising, as Valve has been saying for months that a distributed file xfer system was coming to steam. What a smart way for them to dump their server load onto paying customers eh? I just hope its optional and not required.
