We’ve had enough of digital monopolies and surveillance capitalism. We want an alternative world that works for everyone, just like the original intention of the web and net.
We seek a world of open platforms and protocols with real choices of applications and services for people. We care about privacy, transparency and autonomy. Our tools and organisations should fundamentally be accountable and resilient.
Hello Everyone, my first message to this list so please be gentle :)I'm the CCO for Ethereum. If you're not familiar with this project, here's a quick summary:"Ethereum is a platform that makes it possible for any developer to write and distribute next-generation decentralized applications. Borrowing the concept of distributed consensus and cryptographic proof that makes cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin so effective in trustless payments, Ethereum extends the use of these technologies to trustless agreements. This allows developers to easily build innovative new products on a censorship and collusion-resistant foundation." Potential use cases at https://medium.com/p/4790bf5f7743Recently our CTO wrote this very interesting article on a potential 'web 3.0', a decentralized web: http://insightsintoamodernworld.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/apps-what-web-30-looks-like.htmlThis gives us a 'holy trinit y' of decentralized logic, decentralized storage and decentralize network.I'm currently forming a panel in London, format will be approx 1.30h during the evening in a 150 head venue. I of course have a representative for decentralized logic (ethereum), decentralized storage (maidsafe kindly agreed to join us) but unfortunately no one from a network point of view :(Can anyone put me in touch with a decentralized networking expert, ideally someone with a completely opensource project (hardware or software), who might be available in London towards the end of May?Thank you!--Stephan TualChief Communications Officer
