disruptive tech – p2p social network

Wired reported yesterday about the global square, a p2p social network backed by wikileaks for Occupy.

I’m most curious about the paradigm of a social network built on open source peer-to-peer. Has this been tried before?

The tech could “help establish more distributed social networks, … and perhaps even add to the long-dreamed-of semantic web — an internet made not of messy text, but one unified by underlying meta-data that computers can easily parse.”

What does this mean for you? Imagine a web with search & connections that did not require a centralized service like google or facebook.

This could be seriously disruptive tech that changes the nature of the web.
