I think there're are three objectives attracted to form what Piper will be:
1. The needs to have a tool that links application to each other
2. A network of nodes that are executed in a powerfull environment
3. A platform that offers a better way of building a system on top

Think everybody can link these points to specific Piper participants :)

We still need to finish the 1st phase of creating Piper: getting a pilot to
actually run :)
