I was thinking a seed-buddies website could be a really big help here. We’d have to call it something cooler than that, of course, maybe “SwarmUp” or “DatSwarm”.
Basically just a site where you can post your site up with a short description, and a number of tags. If you find a site that meshes with your interests, you can mutually seed each other.
This could work really well to bond dats about similar interests together, homegrowing a mutual support network that could extend beyond simply re-seeding to include boosting each other’s content, collaboratively creating content, p2p tech support, etc.
I think it’s a better option than asking mere visitors to seed your site (not saying thats bad), because content creators // dat administrators likely have more skills, resources, and interest in helping the dat’s they seed to be the best they can be. Would you rather have your dat seeded on Joe Customer’s laptop, or Joe Administrator’s data center blade?
