    Good post Krishnan!
    I have similar views on combining P2P and Cloud Computing that I had blogged about a while back

    I do believe that the last mile is still a challenge and the centralized nature of the cloud will not solve problems such as CDN, Live Broadcast etc. However there is a huge opportunity to combine centralized and decentralized computing to deliver compelling user experience.

    I agree. The cloud is just a contra-revolution for P2P

    Cloud Servers are going to be becoming more and more widely known. I even use only the cloud now for my personal stuff.
