The following comment has to be one of the most important comments in
the entire article and its a bit disturbing.

"Right now somewhat more than half of all Internet bandwidth is being
used for BitTorrent traffic, which is mainly video. Yet if you
surveyed your neighbors you'd find that few of them are BitTorrent
users. Less than 5 percent of all Internet users are presently
consuming more than 50 percent of all bandwidth."
