Internet 2.0

Given that Web 2.0 is all about social software and constructing knowledge together, should the Internet itself (the architecture, i.e.) be constructed in the same way – a peer architecture?

According to a study conducted by the Bar-Ilan University:

“…peer to peer network routing could benefit the Internet by improving efficiency and avoiding congestion, according to a report in the MIT Technology Review. The researchers also found that the Internet comprises about 80 key intersection points, or nodes, in the midst of about 5,000 intermittently linked dependent nodes.”

Why just social software, why not social hardware?
