G+: BEEP - the Block Extensible Exchange Protocol

David Coles
BEEP - the Block Extensible Exchange Protocol. It's almost as fun to say as it is reading about.

Think of it like a redesign of a generic text-based TCP protocol like HTTP with the intention of building other protocols (SOAP, WebDAV, Logging) on top of it, getting rid of the request/reply and URL/status code semantics. If you want to write a new text-based protocol, this might be a good place to start.
