OneSwarm is a new peer-to-peer (P2P) technology and application developed at the University of Washington. It basically works just like the old P2P applications like BitTorrent and Gnutella.  The big difference is that OneSwarm uses source address rewriting to protect user privacy. Another difference is the interface, OneSwarm is web-based and extramly easy to use and supports real-time transcoding of many audio and video formats for in-browser playback. This will eliminate the need to master a new application’s interface or search for custom media codecs.

OneSwarm is availible for MacOS, Win XP, Win Vista and Linux. Also, it is, wait for it… Open source!
May we already now guess that this technology will have a great usage in the future?
