  • Oct31'2000 Virtual Bandwidth - * Adam wants the Internet to be Everyman's broadcast medium, to route around TV and radio broadcast networks, with no compromise in quality.*

  • Jan11'2001 Payloads For [[RSS]] - focused on video

  • Jan19'2001 Adam keeps plopping cool stuff into my enclosures folder. This morning I watched a short movie called The Battle of the Sexes.

  • Jan29'2003 How to support enclosures

  • Jan31'2003 I just watched a movie of Adam's family playing Monopoly from his payload channel.
