WiPeer – serverless p2p

Yesterday I came across WiPeer that enables peer-to-peer wireless networking without the server piece. Interesting idea, but something that is not new. IBM Thinkpads already come pre-installed with such a tool that lets Thinkpad users join p2p communities. However WiPeer goes a step further in the automation of such p2p capabilities. You can create or join p2p networks from any windows machines while choosing between wireless (WiFi) and Ethernet. Just download the app, and join the p2p session. Overall good is that you have privacy while sharing files or collaborating since nothing passes through a central server. Or at the very minimum you can share files easily between your machines without the need to route them through 3rd party servers.
