<nettime> After Napster.


Well, there will be discussions about gnutella etc, other "filesharing
systems", more techtalk, how to share files with strangers. But when we
think about sharing files with friends, this would be a completely
different battlefield. Basically, sharing files with friends was and is ok.
Call it whatever you want, "fair use" or whatever. But what is a "friend"
today ? Are maillists like the Miles Davis list sufficiant narrow, must
there be some additional link between people ? This is IMHO where the fun
begins.
