This is a great article in @compost on the role of the client-server model in the enclosure of the digital commons, and how peer-to-peer can punch some cracks in the big tech pavement.
I think there's some space for reflection on the other aspect of the article, the use of nature analogies for technological concepts. I like them (e.g. digital garden) but I think need to think about what they might hide or distort, too.
