Distributed vs. Centralized...

I’m having the classic distributed vs. centralized debate in my head about a project I’m just about to dive into with a friend.

The current model he is using is distributed and it’s working pretty nicely for what it does right now…but I feel like the gains are all in the short term and that the long term vision of the project will really only come from a centralized system…so I’m going to build a prototype of that for him (as soon as I find some time to dig into it).

Hopefully I won’t be wasting too much time exploring this path…guess we’ll find out soon enough!
