Good article on decentralization. The key characteristic I propose is that a system is decentralised to the extent it distributes power. Specifically, the distribution of control, knowledge and capability between many users." The article is more focused on types of decentralization than on how to do it and what it means, but it's useful as an overall introduction.  Related: How solid is Tim's plan to redecentralize the web?
