Scavenging is mostly gone with agricultural revolution thousands of years ago. And in my part of world villagers were actually destroying roads so they would be left alone by turks. Imagine, they did not starve to death, nor did they ate sewage even tho there was no sewage system at the time. So, no. Roads, and sewage systems are far from necessity by your logic.

Netflix Pondering Peer-to-Peer Technology For Streaming Video 114

An anonymous reader writes "The folks at Ars Technica have discovered evidence that Netflix is actively researching the possibility of using peer-to-peer technology to stream its videos to its customers. The evidence: a one-month old job listing seeking a software engineer with extensive experience developing and testing large-scale peer-to-peer systems. In addition: Netflix's admission of wanting to 'look at all kinds of routes.' A recent blog post by BitTorrent's CEO explains how, in a peer-to-peer architecture, 'Netflix traffic would no longer be coming from one or two places that are easy to block. Instead, it would be coming from everywhere, all at once; from addresses that were not easily identified as Netflix addresses — from addresses all across the Internet.'" In other Netflix news, the company has "reached an agreement with three smaller cable companies that, for the first time, will let U.S. subscribers watch the streaming video service’s content as though it were an ordinary cable channel."
