I have developed a design that has all the advantages Vitalik describes for private block chains, but on a public block chain.

The scalability white paper he linked to in that article is a more abstract and generalized description of the scalability design I had also invented around the time he  published this paper. This is the first time I've seen this research.

Afaics his abstract paper does not deal with some of the intricacies of the economics that have to be solved in order to make the design actually work in the real world. Also he apparently hasn't realized that it is possible to filter out a 51% attack.

I don't know why you characterize the article as an "attack".

Anyway, the idea of a "private" block chain makes little sense to me. If you trust all the participants, then what is the advantage of a block chain database over any other kind of distributed database?
