"P2P projects are characterized by holoptism. Holoptism is the
implied capacity and design of p 2 p processes that allows
participants free access to all the information about the other
participants; not in terms of privacy, but in terms of their
existence and contributions (i.e. horizontal information) and
access to the aims, metrics and documentation of the project
as a whole (i.e. the vertical dimension). This can be contrasted
to the panoptism which is characteristic of hierarchical projects:
processes are designed to reserve 'total' knowledge for an elite,
while participants only have access on a 'need to know' basis. "
