Project Gutenberg teams with Kazaa 

This is pretty interesting.. in a recent mailing Greg Newby had this to say:

Project Gutenberg has worked with Kazaa to make our eBooks available via peer to peer file sharing networks. Recently, a Magnetlinks download option was added to search results via our 'find an eBook' page at http://gutenberg.net/find.shtml

Magnetlinks is an open standard to allow Web browser programs with the Magnetlink plug-in to find items on peer to peer networks. If it is unavailable, a regular http or ftp download is used.

For more information, read the Project Gutenberg File Sharing HOWTO at http://gutenberg.net/howtos/p2p-howto.shtml

Just more proof that P2P can be a positive force.
