Minitasking, by the artist known as Schoenerwissen, searches Gnutella via a graphical interface. Once you connect to the Gnutella network, Minitasking acts as a representative for what it encounters: depending on the amount of content in a file, it is presented in a metaphorical \"bubble\" that differs in size and color based on what the file contains. Queries are color-coded, and Minitasking pairs that bubbles via this system. You can track others\' queries on-screen. Minitasking is a free download, but not if you have a Mac (but check periodically, as this version should be revealed momentarily).
