Private, Secure P2P FilesSharing with

I’ve just discovered a neat file-sharing application from The application allows you to easily setup shared folders on your computer and to specify which files/folders you would like to share with certain individuals or groups via the Internet. While P2P sharing is nothing new, this application is simple to setup, and allows easy-to-configure private access. Additionally, it’s available to Windows, OSX and Linux users (it’s Java-based).

CleverCactus is a beta release at this point, and I am unsure if it’s moving toward commercial status (it’s free at this point). Additionally, I wasn’t able to determine whether the installation loaded my machine with spyware … and there is no indication from the website whether it uses spyware or not. Nonetheless, this is an interesting application to check out and I can think of excellent uses for educators especially.
