A little Q and A from Michael Herman, CTO of Parallelspace :
Q: What happens to edge-based content as it ages? e.g. a richly populated Groove shared space?
A: As soon as the content can be indexed and searched, it may physically live at the edge but logically, it becomes a center-based resource.
Q: What is Google?
A: Google is the world's largest distributed document management system. [ Michael Herman, Parallelspace]
My question for Michael (with whom I had several hours of enjoyable debate, at ETCON, about Groovespace vs blogspace) is:
Q: How do you maximize the horizon of observability in Groovespace?
A: I don't know. I think about it a lot, though. I agree that edge services are key, but I don't see the whole picture clearly (yet).
