If left unchecked, centralized systems will lead to unbalanced exertion of control by the select few elites. For this reason, decentralization, a process that distributes and delegates decision-making and planning away from central authority, is essential.
I’ve been thinking about de-centralization quite often lately. De-centralized networks is what our proposed DePaul makerspace network relies on. It’s an approach that allows silos to exist while gradually opening them up by networking them together. Connecting seemingly disparate ideas and giving them room to synthesize and grow together.
