I wondered a lot why there were no articles about distributing files with ipfs hence the whole websites talks about in abstract.
I imagine that it is pretty difficult for newcomers to come all the way to this git repo
Could there be an article about “pinning” be added that don’t have pinning as the headline? Then I think more people would understand IPFS, since without pinning the file really only exist on one machine.
I know this article, but as I am totally new to IPFS, this article does not really help me with my problem. How do I distribute a 5 GB video file, so it is not only on my machine?
Btw. ipfs is awesome, now just 20 minutes into it!
