I don't blame you.

FBx is dead in the water if it's not part of a decentralised alternative. I see FBx as a cyber guardian standing vigilant at our gateway to the internet and protecting all devices and users behind against bad actors and unwanted data leaking, and providing decentralised services with a slick UI.

The only paper I've read is the Bitcoin White Paper by Satoshi Nakamoto, a work of genius. Also check out BitMessage, Ethereum, DarkMarket (now forked to be OpenBazaar). The buzz of decentralisation is around Blockchain technologies. Redecentralize is a good source for video interviews of decentralised projects.

I think it's more the 'decentralise everything' movement (or going to be, if you see here http://youtu.be/lFgnrd3G81U )

Feel free to message me.
