back in the p2p fad days, the distinction between federated and
decentralized became important, and was characterized as
(paraphrasing):

- federated is distributed hierarchy with a single or few points of
ownership and control. federated is focused more around
inter-operability, resilience, availability, and robustness of managed
services.

- decentralization has no single point of ownership or control nor
does it imply hierarchy of any sort, instead relying on the
cooperation of independent peers. decentralized is focused more around
peer trust boundaries, scale free growth, end-to-end anonymity and
privacy.


federated systems are working great! CALEA compliant, one stop shops
for BULLRUN.

what we need are fully decentralized systems that are even more
usable, even more scalable, and even more end-to-end protected with
hardware and software we can actually trust.
