In this paper, we revisit digital fountains as an information theoretic approach for disseminating information. We embed this approach, however, into the architectural context of information centric networking (ICN). We discuss how our information-centric network architecture enables efficient information dissemination through fountain coding and we present the basic network operations for disseminating information from publishers to subscribers.
