There's a well-known African proverb: "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." What Moxie's centralization talk misses is that the faults in early decentralized protocols came because dotcoms wanted to capture the market.
These companies went fast alone, but they didn't go far. The last 20 yrs show few real innovations in msging. How many attempts has Google made? If they all had worked together, you wouldn't have a half-dozen incompatible messaging apps with similar features on your phone.
@kyle TED talk?
@kyle have faith brother, the Market will ensure that the best protocol will win eventually!
