FeedTree: collaborative RSS and Atom delivery

FeedTree brings news feed updates to users, instead of the other way around. FeedTree users work together to share the latest Web feed updates. News arrives immediately, instead of on a polling schedule, making RSS as instantaneous as e-mail.

How does this work? The short answer is that new RSS items are distributed using peer-to-peer multicast. For the long answer, including detailed notes on security, incremental deployment, and research topics, consult the introduction to FeedTree (or print out the poster).
