Its been a long time since anyone around here used Napster but that's a name we all know and many folks got started file sharing with over ten years ago, it was such a rapid global phenomenon that its a suprise someone has only just got around to creating a documentary http://www.wired.com/underwire/2013/03/downloaded-doc-fanning-parker-napster/
Shawn Fanning has been toying with the idea of releasing the Dead Sea Scrolls of the digital music revolution.
The guy who wrote the code that became Napster is talking with Alex Winter – the man responsible for the documentary film Downloaded, detailing his exploits with the file-sharing service – in the hotel room of Sean Parker, who co-founded Napster with him more than a decade ago. Fanning claims he’s been “joking” about releasing the code, but Winter is adamant that he follow through.
