BitTorrent is a new peer-to-peer distribution mechanism for large data files. It makes it possible to share a file without being bogged down with traffic if it happens to become popular. Each person who downloads it becomes a new source of it. Files are both uploaded and downloaded to many places at the same time. See an introduction here on Slashdot. There's apparently not any snazzy graphical interface to it yet, so it still mostly for techies.
