NOTE: You do not have to formally RSVP to come, but please let us know, so we have a ballpark headcount to communicate to the restaurant to ensure there is enough seating. The meeting starts at 7pm.

This month, SGVLUG and InfoSec Syndicate member Ray S will give a brief history on P2P software technology, applications and implementations.

Abstract:

The P2P and the World of Tomorrow presentation will address a brief history on the development on P2P software technology, applications and implementations by the end user. Applications such as Audio Galaxy, Napster, Direct Connect, Gnutella, Freenet, eDonkey2000, Kazaa, Morpheus, BitTorrent and Soulseek will be discussed in the presentation. End user usage patterns based on net cultural behavioral norms will be addressed as well as the development of conflict as result of practicing such norms on a end user case-by-case basis. Media attention and changes in policies of governance in relation to P2P technology and usage are topics that will be touched on in the presentation. New changes in P2P technology being made to maneuver difficulties that have arisen from changes in governance policies are addressed later in the presentation. The presentation's conclusion addresses technological responsibility and safety practices the audience can use to prevent themselves from becoming a marginalized end user as in the cases discussed earlier in the presentation.
