While fighting with my compilation problems in the previous post, I was off reading Global Guerrillas. His discussion about how networked decentralized decision-making works for warfare just as well as it does for open-source software is fairly interesting.

The points about how terrorism can achieve goals by breaking infrastructure is disturbing.

In the near future not only do we have to worry about collapse from insufficient maintenance and catastrophic climate change, we'll also get terrorists blowing up transformers to destroy nation-states.

There's some point here that's more refined than "now that decentralization works, centralization of authority's days are numbered", but I'm to tired to find it.
