The Venice Project

As I was on holiday every body on the project started to blog without me :(

Yes I'm also part of the "super-secret project" aka The Venice Project.
What is it ? Well Sylvain already explained it on his blog... So I will keep it DRY ;)

The most surprising fact for me on this project is the speed and quality of the video over a private p2p network, I would never thought it would be even possible! Just to see this you should register for the beta test ;)
Note: it uses a p2p network but the content display is completely official and deals have been made with famous content providers (no legal issues here unlike utube).

I've been working on various parts of the system mainly setting up cruisecontrol (fixing various bugs and creating some enhancements), I've done some Ant, worked on a web application for advertisements using wicket and on some features of the search engine using lucene.

I would appreciate a Joost invitation token please.

Sorry to ask but do not know a tester personally yet. Very intrigued about it, however and can't wait to try it out.

Thanks in advance.

Hello, Francisoud:

I'm a web designer in Taiwan, I found this article as I desperately seeking a Joost invitation.

And, yes, could you please also send me an invitation to my mail : virgokai@gmail.com as well? Thank you very very much.

I hope I can introduce Joost to our people here to share the amazing internet experience.

Best Regards,

Kai Wen
