BitTorrent Celebrates Ten Year Anniversary

A programmer by the name of Bram Cohen invented something very special 10 years ago, the first peer-to-peer BitTorrent protocol, in April of 2011.

Just three months later he posted “My new app, BitTorrent, is now in working order” on Yahoo Groups, along with a URL.

Cohen wrote the first BitTorrent client in Python, and while it received a very slow welcoming, it was just years later when the platform really took off.
