Have you ever sent an e-mail with an attachment to someone only to discover that their inbox can’t accept something larger than a few megabytes? Remember how you felt when you got that dreaded mailer daemon saying something to the effect that the e-mail you just sent was undeliverable because the recipient’s inbox couldn’t accept anything larger than 10 megabytes?
Well, you might want to give Pando a try.
Pando.com is an interesting melding of two technologies, namely e-mail and peer-to-peer, or P2P, networking.
You might remember P2P from its notorious beginnings as the technology behind the then-illegal doings of the old Napster.
Kids everywhere were illegally exchanging copyrighted music by sending the files directly from their computers to other computers who shared access on the P2P network.
