Decentralisation without decolonisation is bullshit.
What do I mean?
I mean if you’ve centred your organisation on your “decentralised” platform so that when one scales so does the other, you may be decentralising something but it’s not wealth or power. (So if anyone tells you they have venture capital, for example, and they’re working on decentralising the web, etc., you know they’re full of shit because the billion-dollar exit their funding requires is the antithesis of decentralisation.)
(This is a fundamental design decision that will decide your funding and organisational structure and, thereby, the character of the tools you end up developing.)
