How interesting would it be to be able to watch a Hangout, or a multiple-camera live event, choose your view and drag around the scene?!? Great demo, .
... and NO, folks, I don't see Hangouts doing this soon, but who knows what the future will bring?
EDIT: I was incorrect. The only thing it doesn't do is notify you of the reshare, which apparently consistent with how sharing currently works.
Collections? Is a huge security risk.
Collections appear to allow reshares of semi-private content (Circles or shared to individuals) with no limit except "you can't post to a Collection with the privacy setting 'Public'." That's the same as a normal reshare now.
The difference is it does this silently. I got no notification when he reshared my content into test Collections (content that was shared only with him and created for the test). I got no notification when he shared it into a collection shared with only me, and ALSO no notification when he shared it into a collection that is available to anyone he has circled.
Collections also allow reshares of old posts into collections. Meaning things you might have thought were safe are definitely not because now you won't get a notification if someone you trusted decides to screw you.

This is a PROBLEM.
This is a great guide at how to read the series. The most salient point is:
"Asking “Which book will let me know what the series is like?” is akin to asking “What single fruit shall I eat to learn whether I like fruit?”"
To your point regarding practicality: I think the decentralized model is secondary. More immediately, Tesla is furthering the existing centralized model by constructing a centralized power plant, open sourcing all of their designs and patents, and imploring other companies to follow suite: https://youtu.be/yKORsrlN-2k?t=799
Perhaps over time, the load on the centralized plants will be lessened as the price on solar (and other renewable energies) comes down, but I don't think this is a requisite for his plan to work.
To some extent, I think Musk is trying to break our species out of the "analysis paralysis" we seem to have around climate change and how to address it. I think there is probably a capitalistic angle here, but I get the sense that if Tesla were to break even on this endeavor, Musk wouldn't care. Mostly because if things keep going as they are, no one will be around to spend the money. He seems deeply interested in attempting to address the large threats to our species (climate change making Earth uninhabitable for humans, humans being 100% centralized on Earth).
