Can we set one of these up for Raddle? I really like the idea of using torrenting to move things around the internet more efficiently. I think in the post Net Neutrality US, we are going to have to get more creative about sharing data. I am glad to see other people working on these kinds of ideas.

yeah, it looks rad, but I think we would have to set up a server to post content. Or maybe we could set up multiple servers and really capitalize on the distribution of data over multiple computers so it's not just using up space on one server. While at it, we should get a media goblin going to so we can post images more easily. I wish I had a bigger raid setup, I would do this today if I did.

I'm getting a rPi soon, I'm going to add these as projects however it's a pi zero so it'll probably be very slow for anything long term.
