The trial of the four operators of The Pirate Bay starts tomorrow.
I read online that approximately 80% of global internet traffic is directly linked to bittorrent distribution. The Pirate Bay estimates they carry 50% of all bittorrent traffic.
Thus, The Pirate Bay is directly related to 40% of global internet traffic. How insane is that?
Regardless of which side of the fence you fall on with this issue, I think most can agree that this is a pretty important trial.
sidenote: While researching this on the web, I learned The Pirate Bay tried to purchase Sealand when it went up for sale a few years ago. Kind of interesting.
School blog of BArch student Samuel Mortimer kept from 2008 - 2011. Mostly late-night musings of the studio, but with an emphasis of the events of the College of Architecture and Design and University of Tennessee on the whole. Later blogs discuss participation in the New Norris House project, as both a student and researcher hired after graduation.
