red-starfish.jpgIn light of the previous post on “The Starfish and The Spider” here is a clip from the CBS News about the underground church in China. I think the church is a good example of at least four of the principles of decentralization shared in the book.

1. When attacked, a decentralized organization tends to become even more decentralized.

2. An open system doesn’t have central intelligence; the intelligence is spread throughout the system.

3. Open systems can easily mutate.

4. The decentralized organization sneaks up on you.
