+ - BitTorrent to be optimized with Nobel-prize theory->

Spy der Mann writes: "Last week the Nobel Prize in Economics was awarded to Hurwicz, Maskin and Myerson for laying the foundations of the mechanism design theory. Interestingly, a practical implementation of this theory is being worked on by P2P researchers. They believe that the principles from the mechanism design theory can be used to motivate people to share. "We are working on a mechanism design based solution for all 9 elementary actions in P2P by using a distributed reputation system and mechanism that does not degrade to a single shot prisoners dilemma, such as BitTorrent tit-fot-tat"."
