    "The BitTorrent Mainline and ĀµTorrent clients have a combined 100 monthly user base, so this is a huge with for the Khan Academy."

    100 million, it seems. :)

    Anyway, this is really cool. I'd be curious to see what information these videos are built upon and how credible it truly is. Seems to fall in line with Obama's plan for education and data being widely available.

    I've been watching the Khan academy videos since he only had about 300 of them up on his site. The guy, Salman Khan, who makes the videos is an absolute Genius.
    I went back to highschool and passed that maths and then went onto college first year maths with the help of his vids. All passed!

    About time we saw more legal use of bit torrenting. It's a shame it's main use is still piracy.
