[liberationtech] Decentralization

Hi All,

One of the problems may decentralized startups are confronting in Silicon
Valley is that venture capitalists are telling them that they need to be
centralized because there is no business model in decentralization.

For an example, think Diaspora: The original vision of Diaspora was a
social network where each person could have his or her own node in the
network and connect to others to share data similar to how Napster
connected people to download music. But the data would live in your
machine, not Facebook's.

Can anyone think of decentralized business models that are profitable so
folks on this list who are struggling with pitching decentralization as a
business model can succeed?

Thanks,
Yosem
