What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? network can be distributed to different location , but the logs , computes , route making can be centralized , stored and analyzed by a group of authorized users/apps e.t.c Decentralized , at least how I can see it , as a copy of the same think , stored in different locations , and everyone is aware of this copy and it's location , whenever a change is made , partially like in ElasticSearch. Anymodification in copy modification should be agreed by biggest majority , base on reputation of the community and everyone should get a new copy at the same time, kind of sync.
As best as you can given currently available information, please describe the value proposition of the xx network platform and how it differs from other current blockchain solutions.
Privacy by Default is a goal of the xx network Platform. In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet? To don't be constrained in the future , everyone should be free to expose their opinions.
In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? possibility of saying not just rue or false , but also something between , for easiest understanding, you can bring the analogy with current AI neural networks , where you have weight and probability , that is not saying true or false but , 0.73 true for a certain resonce , and in conjuctions with it's weight and synapses are giving best set of outputs.

Can you meet the hardware specs? If so, you have my vote.
