@Argus those top brackets are nice, i’ve never seen that

I think the federated network of providers is not a platform (on pic the question mark). There is no single business model, rules, it is heterogenous.

@Argus Fantastic diagram! One thing to further consider: Distributed Network architectures.

@chris How would you distinguish "distributed" from "peer-to-peer"?

@Argus I'd say "distributed" is a form of "peer-to-peer" but uses the power of distributed nodes to run as one system. Example: Folding@home
