Dinner and Discussion: Decentralization via Centralization
On January 4, Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, posted his annual personal challenge (https://tinyurl.com/yanoaufn). Reporting about it pretty much split into two camps: 1) Mark Zuckerberg vows to fix Facebook (https://tinyurl.com/yd7d48yp) and 2) Facebook will be implementing cryptocurrencies (https://tinyurl.com/y7akhp8g). I’d like to bring your attention to the last paragraphs of Zuckerberg’s post, where he talks about centralization versus decentralization. Consider this explanation of decentralization contributed by the Decentralization Thematic Team of the World Bank: (https://tinyurl.com/ycscg5m). Next please consider this article from February, 2014, predicting 21 technologies will decentralize the world (https://tinyurl.com/yabay8nw). How many of them have you heard of? Why or why not? Do you see the irony in this entire discussion?
