Jeff Vail recently wrote a good article on how small, fairly equal agents can get the benefits of a large, efficient network without the sacrifices that would be necessary in adopting a hub-and-spoke model.

He developed the idea mostly in the context of how intentional communities might relate to one another, but intends it to be more general than that: for instance, it would also apply to a hypothetical mesh-networked ISP/voice service of the sort I mentioned in a recent thread on the General Homesteading forum.
