    1. voluntary federations of small polities


      Perhaps a light patch? I'd have gone with "polities of all sizes", but perhaps I'm wrong.

    1. social network.

      I like how in the story about how Flancians managed to get rid of walled gardens and in the corresponding [[flanbook]] Agora's node, you refer to the Agora as an entity for central coordination.

    1. syphons. The simplest came in the form of browser extensions. Whenever a Flancian used a targeted service X, the syphon redirected relevant data in the background to the replica X’.

      Don't close-source social networks in our world today provide such data export tools (either willingly or legally obliged)? How would these differ to these Flancia's syphons?

      Do we have examples of these syphons in our world? I haven't found a [[syphon]] node in the Flancia's Agora :(
