The boundary between standalone and server-based applications 

via William Grosso Sunday Afternoon Thoughts on the Design of RSS Aggregators . . . what's the boundary line between "standalone application" and "server-based" application. That is, when should an application live entirely on an end-user's machine, and when should it live on a server and be accessed through a client program (this distinction gets hazier in the case of RSS Aggregators, which are, in a loose sense, web-clients anyway). See also Thick or Thin -- That is the Question?
