Putz.

I don't know why you even still bother talking to him. I gave up on him long ago. Every now and then I'll read one of his posts but I always regret it so I just avoid him altogether. I recommend you do the same.

I feel like we've all been "dancing around" the contentious claim: if some decentralization helps, then complete is best. What about the FBI, whose intermediate decentralization goes too far? What about corporations, whose intermediate centralization already appears to be optimized? WTF does a curve "reversing" even look like?

I don't feel like actually going to the trouble of breaking out the graphics program, so I'll describe it:
X Axis: Decentralization of command structure, 0 being hierarchical, endpoint being complete individual autonomy
Y Axis: Efficiency, as defined by either profit/costs or speed of response to changing conditions. 0 being inefficient, endpoint being maximum efficiency.
I contend that though the line may not start at (0,0) or (0,100), but that from the start point, the line is straight, and either direct or inverse, or that it looks like the bitcoin supply curve (or again, the inverse). The curve "reversing" would look like a parabola, starting out either direct or inverse, and switching at some point to the other.

Thank you. Do you agree that the FBI and corporations benefit from being partly decentralized, as opposed to being completely centralized? Based on your description, EVERY organization should strive to be completely one way or the other!

Same thing.  What's the unit of "efficiency"?  Anyway, as demonstrated above your point is pretty much moot.

In your signature, you claim to be "rather good" with Linux. What's the unit of "goodness"?

Putz.
Namcalling - that's a step down from parroting - reaching the bottom of your logic barrel already are we?

Why would I need a unit?  I'm not quantifying my abilities with Linux.  Are you saying you aren't quantifying "efficiency" (whatever that means) - that would be pretty silly.

Anyway, as demonstrated earlier.  Your point is dead.

I contend that though the line may not start at (0,0) or (0,100), but that from the start point, the line is straight, and either direct or inverse, or that it looks like the bitcoin supply curve (or again, the inverse). The curve "reversing" would look like a parabola, starting out either direct or inverse, and switching at some point to the other.
Lulz. So nobody knows what "slope" means? (either of a line or a line tangent to the curve) or "rate of change" for that matter?

I'm rather good with Linux.  If you're having problems with your mining rig I'll help you out remotely for 0.05.  You can also propose a flat-rate for some particular task.  PM me for details.

I think that it depends on the organization where more decentralization increases efficiency. I don't think that a completely centralized organization is efficient, nor do I think that a completely decentralized organization is efficient. I disagree with myrkul there. I do however believe that many organizations could benefit from more decentralization than they currently have, and that it takes a good boss to dare to let go of some control, which really is what decentralization is about.
