Live 8 has proved to be a triumph for technology, with millions participating in the event via the web and mobiles.

Almost 27 million people texted in their support for a petition asking G8 leaders to double aid and cancel debts for the world’s poorest countries.

Millions watched the event online and recordings of Sergeant Pepper were on sale an hour after being sung live.

But videos and audio of many of the acts were also available via BitTorrent file-sharing software.
