As well as lurking on this list, I've been attempting to keep tabs on 
CCN progress because its aim appears to be no less than re-inventing 
the basic protocols of the web.

On the basis of what has just been published after the third CCN 
community conference:


  it looks like the CCN community is still expanding (in terms of both 
companies and universities involved) and they're at the .8 beta 
release, with 1.0 planned; major releases approx. quarterly, so 1.0 
could happen within a year. They're also switching now from research 
releases to production releases.

IMO it might be worthwhile for those interested to at least skim 
through the key-note pdf from the conference, which I found summarized 
clearly the work to date, the people involved, and the API 
architecture they're using to institute CCN into the existing internet.


It seems to me that if CCN does have wide adoption, then it's 
unavoidable that what's being done by this group will have to change 
to accommodate it. How much change I can't say, but I expect others 

Or, to use a metaphor, it's unlikely that any given large asteroid 
will strike the earth, but it's good to scan the sky occasionally. And 
I've noticed that there is this large asteroid, and it appears to be 
coming this way.  :-)
