An interesting discussion of using WebServices and p2p
as groupware.

"Minar's point is that decentralization in and of
itself means nothing. It's one style, centralization
another. To be 100% pure P2P is as pointless as to be
100% pure Java or Perl or Windows or Linux. P2P and
Web services are, some say, building blocks of an
Internet operating system. Insofar as they define
interfaces, broker connections, and allocate scarce
resources, that's true, but it sounds oddly sterile.
Perhaps the new technologies for group formation,
content superdistribution, and collaborative filtering
should be seen as adaptive responses arising from
human colonization of cyberspace."
