Distributed Web


Distributed Web Ldapwiki can not find a decent definition.

Ldapwiki seesstatemend like: A movement that's a complete reimagining of today’s internet infrastructure, it includes new and different protocols. We rely on protocols every day for things like email (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, SMTP, allows Gmail, Yahoo Mail or Hotmail to all communicate) or for web browsing (Hypertext Transfer Protocol, HTTP). In the Distributed Web, new Peer-to-peer networks that do not rely on centralization are being built.[1]

Well help Ldapwiki understand. The Internet is a Peer-to-peer system as always has been.

A Distributed system in its most simplest definition is a group of computers working together as to appear as a single computer to the End-User.

A Decentralized system is still Distributed system in the technical sense, but the whole decentralized systems is not owned by one entity. No one company can own a decentralized system, otherwise it wouldn’t be decentralized anymore.
