Master's thesis on MDNs

The work on my final thesis is well underway. I'm writing about Multimedia Distribution Networks, a new branch of research both at NTNU and worldwide.
A multimedia distribution network is a way to distribute the storage and deployment of multimedia closer to end-users to save both bandwidth and storage space, as well as to provide a clearinghouse and a single-point-of-purchase for multimedia content. Current examples include Google Video and the Open Media Network.
My thesis will study these and propose a new architechure that might eventually become the foundation for a wide range of work in this field by future students at NTNU.
