Content Distribution Networks for Personal Broadcasting and Individualized Reception

presented at the 7th International Workshop on
Web Content Caching and Distribution
(WCW 2002), Boulder, Colorado; Aug. 14-16, 2002

By putting the tools for media creation in the hands of the consumer, we anticipate exponential growth in the distribution and hosting of media on the Internet. We need to confront the issues related to this growth in the number of media sources and services. Significantly higher quality streaming and context-sensitive personalization of multimedia services will be key enablers of this whole technology area.
