I'm glad you took a look.  There are two main purposes.  The first is
to allow artists to network and collaborate.  The second is to allow
legal distribution and payment for files.  I am aiming to develop it
so that an artist has no costs associated with digital distribution.
I hope to build a system which reduces the costs of distribution so
much so that it could be supported by donations.  The most logical way
to do this is a P2P based network.  These purposes have led me to
Jabber and Bittorrent.  All content will be tagged with appropriate
licenses including CC licenses.  This way people can learn the basics
of legal filesharing and remixing.  Many people don't feel the
creative power of CC licenses.  Also, with OpenAPI's we'd also enable
things such as collaborative editing and such.

Those are just some unorganized thoughts.  I intend on cleaning it up
sooner or later.
