Yep.  Lots of startups have lots of ideas.  If you are selling hammers,
you can use the same hammer for lots of projects.  But I'm not a true
believer in the hammer religion.

No actual end user (other than the geek crowd) will ever care that
it's BitTorrent or whatever.  Agreed.  But that doesn't mean a
bastardization of the idea won't run underneath.

I'm a terrible forecaster.  I have no idea how the future will turn
out.  Sometimes there are several ways to solve a problem.
