how to use k2b as a weblog
the "comment" area can be used in much the same way as a weblog "post entry" text area is used today. However, with each HTML entry in your k2blog, you can "attach" a file of arbitrary size. This fill will be distributed to all of your readers without eating up very much of your bandwidth. The equation for the number of nodes your node will send to, in order to reach N sink nodes, is [log(N) + 1]. For example, if you're sending your blog entry/movie to 1000 receivers, your node will transmit the movie directly to about 11 other nodes. If you're sending to 10,000 receivers, your node will transmit directly to about 14 other nodes.
why k2blog is better than an ordinary blog
try hosting a movie on an existing blog web server with a wide readership (10,000 readers). The web server would never be able to handle the load.
