Dear people of p2p-hackers and tahoe-dev:

I presented Tahoe-LAFS at CodeCon last weekend.  CodeCon's prime
directive is that every presentation has to have a live demo of
working code, and that the presenter has to be an author of that code.

For my demo, I leaned an axe against the speaker's podium, strapped
safety goggles around my neck, and then I showed three laptops on
stage, each running a Tahoe node, and then uploaded a movie file to
the Tahoe grid made up of those three nodes.  (This means the file
gets automatically encrypted, digitally signed, and erasure-coded.)
Then I explained that after uploading your movie to the Tahoe grid,
you might turn off your Tahoe node and go away.  And while you are
gone, something BAD might happen...

I've also embedded this video into my blog:

(My blog is also hosted on Tahoe, the Axe-Tolerant Storage System.)

Thanks to Jake Appelbaum for the video.

Regards,

Zooko
