The eDonkey Network (also known as the eDonkey2000 network or eD2k) is a decentralized, mostly server-based, peer-to-peer file sharing network best suited to share big files among users, and to provide long term availability of files.

eDonkey network

Like most sharing networks, it is decentralized, as there is not any central hub for the network; also, files are not stored on a central server but are exchanged directly between users based on the peer-to-peer principle. Currently, the eD2k network is not supported by any organization (in the past it was supported by the MetaMachine Corporation, its creator, which now is out of business) and development and maintenance is being fully provided by its community and client developers. There are many programs that act as the client part of the network. The original eD2k protocol has been extended by subsequent releases of both eserver and eMule programs, generally working together to decide what new features the eD2k protocol should support.

Trans-Atlantic Bandwidth Crunch coming

But those cables may soon no longer be enough to satisfy the global demand for bandwidth between the two continents, according to research out today from TeleGeography. The research firm estimates that bandwidth requirements will grow 33 percent between 2008 and 2015, and trans-Atlantic capacity will be exhausted by 2014. The report also notes that the wave of bankruptcies caused by the oversupply of trans-Atlantic fiber during the boom artificially lowered the cost of providing bandwidth on those cables because many of the pipe providers were able to erase their cable construction debts. That’s good for the current customers who now pay lower prices for transporting their bits, but it means current prices don’t take into account the construction cost of the cables.

Vycarious, a new social-media app that is available for iOS, lets you create, follow and comment on friends' experiences, ranging from a two-week vacation to handcrafting a dinner table.

Social Media App Lets You Live Vicariously Through Friends' Experiences

To start, users create an "experience description," such as "cooking Pad Thai. " They then choose a photo or video as the lead image, denote a starting date and time, and include hashtags to make their experience searchable. After that, users can upload posts, videos, images and other media until their experience ends. However, friends can still write comments even after users hit the end button to signal that their experience is over.

"There just really isn't a way to share an entire experience [on social media]," Rosalie Bartlett, co-founder and CEO of Vycarious, told Mashable. " With Twitter, it's tiny, tiny snippets. That's why Bartlett believes the app, which launched last Friday, can survive in the increasingly crowded arena of social media. Social Media At Work. StumbleUpon.
