Peer-to-Peer (P2P) has become a buzzword and file-sharing applications like Kazaa are very popular and account for a lot of Internet traffic nowadays. The emphasis of my talk will be on the evolution of P2P file-sharing and the technology behind the scenes. I also try to give examples how P2P can be used for other applications like Skype.
