Azureus Adding "Content Layer"

Filed under
Software

Azureus, the ever popular Open Source BitTorrent client, is due to announce the addition of a "content layer" to the software at OnHollywood 2006.

Azureus are developing an integrated platform, or "content layer", to help their users share, discuss and interact with media.

Anybody will be able to post content to the new platform and promote it within social or interest groups. The ultimate popularity of the content will be based on user votes and feedback.

"We want to aggregate people around hi-def, high quality rich media, because that's what Azureus does best," Gilles BianRosa, the Chief Executive Officer of Azureus, explained to Slyck.com. "We think of it as a platform. You can do plenty of different things with it, whether you want to share content with 5 friends or family, or whether you want to share your snowboarding stunts with a community of thousands."
