Why We Need A "P2P Eco-Friendly" Internet?

One thing which attracted me to P2P (and to work on JXTA) was that I always thought the Internet will reach a metldown point due to the way information distribution is currently over centralized. Well:  In 2005 it took the equivalent of 14, 1,000-megawatt power plants to keep online the world's data centers owned by Internet giants like Google (GOOG), Microsoft (MSFT) and Yahoo (YHOO). And that's not counting YouTube! As a simple analogy, do we really need everyone PCs to connect to the Yahoo site to read today Yahoo headline news, or can we realize that a PC, next to the cubicle the person is seating, or somewhere in the building, or the city, already has a copy of the article!

If you truly want to save the planet!  It's not too late. Just check :-)
