This is Fine: Optimism & Emergency in the P2P Network | The New Design Congress

quote [ This global instability demands platform reform. Peer-to-peer networks theoretically offer a level of resilience, safety and community determination that may no longer be possible with these incumbent powers. The moment demands not another protocol, not another manifesto, not another social network, but a savvy understanding of the political dynamics of protocols and the nakedness of today’s networks. ]

This revels a bit in footnotes and political detours but cobbles together a nice timeline of P2P technology together with examples of potential and its sometimes narrow-minded usage and design.
