How it works
When users search for content on Tribler, results come directly from other peers instead of a central server.
By clicking on the desired search result, the meta-data is downloaded from another peer.
“No matter what crazy laws may pass in the future, people will always be able to share,” says TorrentFreak.
Tribler file-sharing software cannot be shut down, says developer
I think what we need is a P2P torrent indexing network... so the torrent files are actually stored on a seperate P2P network and can't be lost with a downed server..

Oh wow, I didn't see that bitsnoop dump at the bottom of the article. That's even better!
Now all I need to do is build a simple application that lets me search through these files for what I want. Completely offline torrent searching!

this is TPB merely being very proactive they are not giving up without a fight
The Pirate Bay team told TorrentFreak that the transition to a magnet site is “a step forward in technology,” and one that will make the site more resistant to being shut down.
Without torrents it takes less bandwidth to host a Pirate Bay proxy site which are used to circumvent ISP blockades in countries like Italy, Ireland, The Netherlands and Belgium. In addition, the Pirate Bay will become much more portable and thus easier to move around.
How easy it is to carry a copy of a torrent-less Pirate Bay became apparent last week, when a user reduced the entire site to 90 megabytes – small enough to fit on a tiny thumb drive. The Pirate Bay team likes the idea of a “portable” backup of the site and told TorrentFreak that they are considering releasing an official version in the future.
It’s quite remarkable to see how The Pirate Bay has transformed in recent years. The site is no longer hosting a tracker, and soon .torrent files will be entirely replaced by magnet links. Despite these changes the iconic file-sharing site is picking up new users every week.
