True, but Bittorent is a very good for sharing a type of media with many
people at once – solving bandwitdh problems. What happens when you blog
that video that everybody in the country just has to see? In fact, it
would be cool if the Internet Archive (or C.C.'s uploader) created
automatic bittorents for all of it's files after you upload them – that
would be really smart!

Yes, it might be a good idea for Video Bloggers to at least become
familiar with Bittorent, as they have been with RSS, as it is a
technology that really solves bandwidth problems. Hmmm, perhaps an
Bittorent site that is made just for Videobloggers might come in handy
when there is a bandwidth limit or a slashdotting?
