⚡️Lightning Talk: Rethinking Decentralization As Orthogonality

Feedback form is now closed.
It's possible that terms like "decentralization" and "p2p" are actually a poor fit to describe the long-term goals of many who are working in this space. I propose a different take - namely, orthogonality - that emphasizes agency and lack of capture, without encumbering notions fixated on legacy transport-layer brokenness.

What will You learn?
I propose a new set of conceptual dimensions along which to think about our various projects. Even if people reject my general thesis, these axes may be useful tools for people in general.
