Often used to refer to PeerToPeer file-sharing networks/software.
The problem with pure PeerToPeer Networks is that it can be very hard for newcomers to find peers to communicate with. Generally the solution is to have a few very well known nodes which newcomers can connect to and explore the network from, but this solution immediately privileges the few well-known nodes and they cease to be peers of the other nodes. This can be partly offset by having a very large number of well known nodes, often all the known stable nodes when a release is produced.
