The problem with Facebook shows how fragile centralization is.
Too many users relying on one company. Too many products and subsidiaries controlled by one corporation. Too many services dependent on same infrastructure.
It was at the top of Facebook's popularity that I learned about Dunbar's number: humans' brains evolved to deal with ~150 people, and this is the average size of our social networks. Maybe it is time to think about Dunbar Corporations. More than 150 headcount? Break it apart.
