The world has changed a lot in the last couple of centuries, technology has come a long way and drastically manipulated society- we now live for technology, for information.
Networking is a vital area of how our systems work, we have centralised, decentralised and distributed systems, each have their advantages and disadvantages. This video helps outline some of them:
The oldest networking is: centralised, it is now viewed upon negatively.
Many people view centralised systems as bad because they have a large amount of control attached to them- one ruling body- and the idea of control scares people (1984!)
What they don’t realise is we use centralised systems voluntarily everyday- through social media! Facebook, Twitter etc all have centralised systems (think about their privacy policies and their headquarters people!!! It’s a conspiracy man!) as the information we post all runs through a main computer as it were.
People are calling for Facebook to make itself a decentralised system, feeling the centralised can “kill us”
So do you still wanna post that status? Or second guessing the control of organisations and the government?
This 90 second video compares how centralised are sooooo last century
