Since I assume that XML based webservices are the topic -- shouldn't
we be talking about "linking" up a resource to a name ?. ie a resource
locator service ?.

Well about the Java stuff , isn't all the GNU java stuff namespaced as
gnu.* ?

It is viable in *large* numbers ... but will we have large numbers of 
nodes here ?

Makes a good point -- The question is the updation of data . I often find
that FreeNet makes for a safer store of data , due to autoupdation of data.
But that concept totally destroys the host based security (ie blindly 
trust all files from 

The updation of service locations in such a scenario is too complicated
when the service changes IP s daily..... Did someone check out userv 
(microserv -- is that a PUN ?) from IBM . I remember some talk about 
this before.

Why distribute and destroy integration ?. 

The point is we should really split it into peices which are big enough 
to be useful and small enough to be distributed. ie anyone can set up 
a server (SuperNode) and other nodes can use it as a handshake point 
-- now make every node a handshake point and we have a true P2P system. 
The supernode just stablizes the system from performance deterioration 
when the number of users drop......

So we balance between true P2P and a centralized system -- exploiting 
the best for the moment.

Checkout in your gnutella for a supernode.

Read my thoughts on thinking
which is a bit too long to say here :)
