Bio: Adam Fisk is the Founder of LittleShoot (
http://www.littleshoo..., a P2P technology company based in New York. LittleShoot's mission is to create an open media distribution infrastructure to maximize freedom of speech. LittleShoot builds a P2P browser plugin that enables web sites to easily take advantage of P2P services, all using open protocols and open source licenses. Before starting LittleShoot, Adam was the lead engineer at LimeWire for 4 years, where he wrote the search specifications for the second-generation Gnutella network that are still in broad use today. Adam is also active in the P2P-SIP, MMUSIC, and BEHAVE working groups at the IETF. Talk Description: LittleShoot uses open protocols like SIP, STUN, TURN, ICE, and HTTP to integrate P2P more fully into the Internet protocol lexicon. Why are open protocols important, especially as new technologies like the P2P elements of Flash 10 come online? How do they relate to free speech? From a user perspective, LittleShoot makes publishing and distributing your digital content incredibly easy through tight integration with the browser and a simple interface, which I'll show in a quick demo.
