Think about bittorrent. They are making money. Check it out http://www.bittorrent.com/ Just because you are decentralized does not mean you cannot control the tunnel! And if you change the word, there will be lots of job offers. Think about the founder of the internet, he certainly won't ever have to worry about unemployment. Serve humanity and humanity will serve you. A journey of a thousand miles starts with one step. Good speed, and do not listen to the naysayers. I have set out on an amazing journey myself, and the more I depanded from the universe - by giving away what I had to give of my talent- the more I got back. Not that you should go hungry. You can manage in balance.

By all means, information wants to befree.Though"depanded"shouldbe fixed to "demanded"
