I once thought of developing a computer where
everything from the core
functions to the peripherals was a network node. In effect replacing the
bus. I found references to a Cambridge U (UK) computer system that
purported to do just that but couldn't find any more info on it.
The Desk Area Network, perhaps?
Yes. I thought it made a lot of sense.
There was an earlier project too, from the 1980s, based on
microprocessor distributed around the Cambridge fast ring:

Shannon, Rockall: South 6 to gale 8, perhaps severe gale 9 later in Rockall.
Rough or very rough. Rain or showers. Good, occasionally poor.
