Postponed from its original September date, O'Reilly's second conference on peer-to-peer computing got off to a start on Monday in Washington, D.C. Rael Dornfest, the conference chair, is using his iBook and the 802.11b network we set up to blog some of the sessions. We'll also be publishing photos from the conference. Watch for more updates through Wednesday.
