Earlier this year BitTorrent announced their first alpha of BitTorrent Sync. I don’t intend to do a lot of these announcement what some one else has done but this is truly interesting so I had to write about it.

This is not about the technical details of BitTorrent Sync but rather an exited rant about the topic. For more coherent explanation of Sync please refer to the Bittorrent Labs site or the wonderful Security Now -podcast episode 402.

BitTorrent Labs have developed a small application, still in alpha, that enables to sync folders (or directories as I like to call them) across the Internet or just across your own home network.
