5+ years of thinking on decentralisation -> a post about:
* There’s more to decentralisation than blockchain
* Decentralisation is a tech tactic and a movement that values agency, privacy, collaboration and choice
* We need to decentralise power by distributing control, knowledge and capability to the network
* Focus on the impact and change we want to see
* An ecosystem of alternatives that work together through open protocols is more compelling than one killer app
