  • Each of us is unique. Like snowflakes that look the same but under the microscope are different, we each have our own specialness that nobody else possesses. We have our own physical attributes, our own mental make-up, our own environmental background, and our own cultural inheritance. But more than all these, we have our own special, unique, and un-copiable talents. These talents are our gifts for life on earth.

  • Many examples of P2P systems have emerged recently, most of which are wide-area, large-scale systems that provide content sharing [12], storage services [10], or distributed “grid” computation [4, 11]. Smaller-scale P2P systems also exist, such as federated, serverless file systems [2, 1] and collaborative workgroup tools [7]. The success of these systems has been mixed; some, such as Napster, have enjoyed enormous popularity and perform well at scale.

While both direct and indirect measurement technologies exist, only direct measurement has the measurement sensitivity required by the TREAD Act and is thus the only one in produc- tion. A direct measurement system uses battery-powered pressure sensors inside each tire to measure tire pres- sure and can typically detect any loss greater than 1.45 psi [40].
