Swarm Radio in the commons

Matt Haughey, February 25th, 2003

Brandon Wiley, an early developer of Freenet, unveiled his newest work at CodeCon. Using various cutting-edge peer-to-peer technologies, he’s developed a shared radio streaming system, dubbed Alluvium, that allows listeners to share their connections with others as they tune in. In a Register write-up today, Wiley mentions that the project may include spidering the web for Creative Commons-licensed music to play (all Creative Commons-licensed music can be webcast freely).

Wiley will be on a panel discussion featuring Creative Commons executive director Glenn Otis Brown and Metadata Advisor Aaron Swartz at the upcoming SXSW festival.
