To help all those that believe like Thomas, I can testify that the
Wikimedia Foundation is interested in other ways of providing content.
This does include providing information using peer to peer
functionality. To me this is very much a long shot. But long shots can
become reality the right people are behind them. I have faith in this
project, I am not really involved. With P2P we may not need the bigger
number of servers as we increasingly do. It is exactly this reason why
the WMF is interested .. :)
