distributed vcs risks

Randomly browsing around after reading a Kernel Traffic thread, I came across The Risks of Distributed Version Control and thought to myself: that quoted bit sounds familiar. Then I realized that I knew the name of the author -- we'd recently had a discussion at work and the quote was paraphrasing me*!

It's a good post, and worth a read if you're interested in the centralized/decentralized schism (Ben's a subversion developer), with even a bit of counterargument from Nathanial of monotone at the bottom.

* And others, I'm sure.
