Brave inventors, intrepid tinkerers, awesome doers, and startups everywhere: we’ve got a job for you.
Over the course of the past few months, we’ve been busy in the Lab. We’ve been hard at work on a solution for personal file management; opening up an Alpha version of BitTorrent Sync. We’ve been looking at ways to streamline creative collaboration; using a simple file delivery service we call SoShare. We’ve been exploring search prioritization; helping artists find visibility via BitTorrent Surf. And we’ve been experimenting with the storytelling and monetization potential of BitTorrent publishing; via content releases with media innovators: authors like Tim Ferriss, studios like Cinedigm.
Our goal is to create a more sustainable distribution model for the Internet’s creators and fans.
We’re in this together.
And we want your help.
We’re opening up our innovation lab to new media startups. If you have a publicly available product in sound, film, live streaming, media sharing, or peer-to-peer technologies, we’ll work with you to accelerate your idea’s success. Continue reading →
We’ve been working on ways for artists to connect with fans; experimenting with sponsored content distribution through the BitTorrent. We’ve been working on ways for artists to collaborate on assignments; beta projects like SoShare. And today, we’re working with Alex Day on ways for artists to collaborate with fans.
Alex Day’s album is out next week. So we’re releasing a free, ten-track collection from Epigrams And Interludes on BitTorrent. We’re also releasing all the stems via SoShare. Remix them. Build something amazing and unheard-of. Share them with the world. And share them back with Alex, by taggingthem #alexdayremixes. You’ve got thirty days from now to get them in. Winners will get a special shout out and swag from Mr. Day.
We like it when things work together. So we’ve been working on a new distributed syncing product to help manage personal files between multiple computers.
Today, BitTorrent Sync is in a pre-Alpha stage. And we’re hoping that users like you can help us build something sick. If you’re comfortable using early, incomplete software, and if you’re committed to helping us figure out a better way to sync, we want to hear from you.
We’re opening up enrollment in our pre-Alpha program to a limited number of testers. If you’re interested, check out the Labs page, fill out an application, and we’ll get you started.
