Got an idea for a new P2P network. Well, I'm not sure the ideas are all that cosmically earth shattering, but I'm going to give it the old college try. I'm a little excited, I really like the approach I'm going to take.
I'm going to use soap to publish the locations, ports, and statuses of peers as they appear and disappear from the net, and then use a publish/subscriber pattern to exchange data between peers on the advertised port.
I'm not sure if that's a new approach, but its so simple it should work like a charm. I'm kind of excited to get to work on it.
