The section on node arrival is a bit confusing, it could do with some cleaning up.

For me it seems a little bit far stretched to imply that the goal behind the development of Tapestry was to address shortcomings of previous generation p2p systems: 1. The developers of Tapestry make no reference to Napster or Gnutella in their work first paper. 2. Additionally, the use cases for Tapestry and Gnutella/Napster are quite different. Tapestry was developed as a storage back-end for large scale internet application whereas Gnutella and Napster were designed as pure file-sharing applications from the beginning. As such Tapestry focuses much more on the needs of infrastructure providers then on the needs of end users. Ph.rosenkranz (talk) 14:51, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

Also the paper cited here is a newer version (published 2004) of the original paper which was published as a technical report (AFAIK) in 04/2001. This might give people the idea that Tapestry was developed much latter than it really was. Ph.rosenkranz (talk) 14:58, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
