Doctorow's ideas implemented

I just wrote a short review of Doctorow's Eastern Standard Tribe. Those who have read the book probably remember his idea for a p2p system for sharing music on highways. It seems that he actually inspired some people to take this idea and implement it.

Cory found about one implementation based on an ipod broadcasting himself and he posted about it on boingboing last year.

Mostly Muppet found another one. Roadcasting (roadcasting.org) is an open source project created by students at Carnegie Mellon Human Computer Interaction Institute. Of course it seems that Cory picked up on this one as well.

I think we will be seeing more and more of these popping up all over the place.
