|Hexagon.cc exclusive film release: In Guantanamo|
|Posted by IH on Nov. 5|
From our friends at
here comes their second film release after US Now:
This is a quote of what the short documentary film is about:
|David Miller’s quiet, powerful film is the result of three days the filmmaker spent touring the Guantanamo prison camps in May 2008, as part of a small group of media representatives allowed there. Although the event was presented as a chance to ‘see inside’ the working of Guantanamo, it was in fact a carefully staged PR exercise designed to yield predictable, stale, controlled media images.
This is an exclusive release on Hex, so you got this from us first By no means however should this remain exclusive, and Vodo's films are Creative Commons licensed. So share on!

|Announcing Hexagon.cc, a Social File Sharing site|
|Posted by IH on Sep. 3|
With a short review at
and a mention in
my interview with BBC,
I'm excited to finally announcing a public preview of our spinoff project
! We have spent 2 years developing this, and I assure you this will change the way you think of a BitTorrent site and file sharing.
How is Hexagon different? The biggest conceptual change is everything is shared within groups you can join and create yourself. These groups can be public, based on interests or made by independent bands, film makers, game studios, etc. for promotional purposes. They can also be made private, so you can very easily and comfortably invite your friends to a private group for sharing your private videos and such. You can do this on Youtube and similar sites, but with BitTorrent, you can share any type of file and not only video, and there's no restriction on file format or size (as much as you can seed). In Hexagon groups, you can also share both torrents as well as flash videos so you get the best of both worlds. This blend of BT and flash video sharing is an unique first.
Another big feature of Hexagon is organization. We've seen through the rise of sharing on BitTorrent, volume of spam rises with its popularity. We've addressed this on isoHunt with comments and rating powered by you, but on Hexagon we've taken organization and spam control to a whole new level technically. Hexagon is (currently) invite only, so if a spammer gets in somehow and start inviting other spammers and creating other accounts, we can chain ban such with relative ease. Hexagon have also taken a very sophisticated approach to files organization. Besides tags now commonly found on many sites, Hexagon did away with the traditional "Videos", "Audio", etc. general categorization and instead, you can label or link your torrent posts with
Semantic Web resources.
For example, a firefox 3.5 torrent should associate to the
and under the Firefox resource you can easily browse all torrents in association for different versions of Firefox. This is a definite first for any social media site, and goes a long way in organizing the huge volume of torrents being shared.
Hexagon.cc is currently open for more users to stress test the system. We would very much appreciate your feedback as we continue to add new features and improve the site! But first,

|Globe & Mail's series, the Download Decade|
|Posted by IH on May. 11|
Globe and Mail, a high profile Canadian business newspaper, has launched the
Download Decade series
(digg this, they deserve it!). 6 months in the making and for one which they revamped their whole site programming in order to accommodate the new multimedia in the series, I especially applaud the fact that the Globe and Mail have now
joined the CBC
in releasing multimedia content over BitTorrent. Adoption of BitTorrent at big publications like G&M in a series celebrating the 10th year anniversary of Napster is a symbolic milestone in itself. What can we look forward to in the next decade to come? I think it's going to be exciting.
of 5 in the series is out at launch of the Download Decade, featuring a
long look back at Napster and the beginning of P2P.
I have been interviewed, expect yours truly to come up in the coming parts. There's so much insights summed up in the series involving the enormously complicated legal and political issues surrounding copyright, culture and creativity, with well compiled audio/video interviews and interactive content. I highly recommend you to
follow this series.
And of course, what's a news worth without torrents? Torrent of Part 1 as well as the upcoming parts in the series should be
membership is only $1/month, with perks like turning off all annoying ads. We dislike ads as much as you do!
