Bill Joy will discuss the evolution from Unix to Java to XML to peer-to-peer. Unix first gave us modular applications, connected by pipes; Java gave us portable applications; XML gave us portable data; and peer-to-peer gives us simple distributed computing. This talk discusses the question: can we put these benefits together?
