Depends on how it would be used. If the application would be used as to create a sort of "ad hoc" collaborative environment, then the decentralized approach is appropriate. But if the application would be used to create planned environments, then a centralized approach is best. The application would be hosted by an Application Service Provider, which everyone with a big pipe wants to be nowadays. -Ryan
