There are almost three hundred members of the p2p-hackers mailing list.  Many
of them have been studying or actively working on decentralized and dynamic
systems for many years.  In addition to writing software, many of the
subscribers have written scientific articles, books, web pages, and so forth.

Interestingly, the vast majority of subscribers post infrequently to the list.
I think that this is because they have a high degree of respect for the
expertise of the other posters, and do not wish to take up the time of their
peers unless they have something specific and interesting to relate.

For newcomers to the p2p "scene", it would be helpful to have a public list of
resources with which to get acquainted with the "common knowledge" that is
already shared by many p2p hackers.  Here is a first stab at some such

The O'Reilly p2p book [1], the proceedings of the MIT Workshop on P2P [2], the
archives of p2p-hackers [3], and the archives of bluesky [4], 
infoanarchy.org [5].
