So the other thing I wanted to try with this presentation was bitTorrent distribution. As I said, I used Prodigem‘s hosted bitTorrent service. Prodigem seeds the file if there are not at least 3 other seeds out there.
In the first day, there was about 120445 MB of completed traffic. Prodigem had transmitted 908 MB. Thus, 99% of the cost of distributing this was born by the audience. (Thanks!)
Right now, more than 1600 copies have been distributed. There are about 90 peers open.
Thus the meaning of: BitTorrent is a free speech tool.
