My friend Henrik Hörlin shared an article about a very interesting art installation. I instantly thought that this installation is a great 3D metaphor for the P2P network we are working on here at Jolocom. These are my thoughts.
“Floating objects give an experience of how objects relate to each other moving through space. I imagine a true P2P-architecture like this… there is no such thing s a platform!!!
WHY?… because a platform is a static installation that is limiting the freedom of movement through the construct of space and time… it blocks, or at least slows down the natural movement of swarming… which could be seen as free movement, yet the individual objects do relate to each other. We can observe this intelligent organizational behavior with our solar system, in nature and more and more in social behavior. So P2P is not an idea or a solution, it is simply the natural manifestation of how things organize themselves in the living-system that we and everything is part of.”
