Earthstar

The merits of being a bicycle when everything else is a hyperloop.

<p>Earthstar is a specification and Javascript library for building online tools you can truly call your own.</p> <p>By being light, simple, and cheap, bicycles confer huge amounts agency to their users. 'Web3' doesn't have a lot of bicycles.</p> <p>Instead it's got a lot of hyperloops: slick, complex, expensive, and with very little application.</p> <p>What can we learn from bicycles when we design new tools for the web? Earthstar occupies a relatively unexplored band of the contemporary web3 spectrum: ephemerality, lightness, offline-ness, malleability, and serving groups of people who already know each other.</p> <p>This project was funded through the NGI Assure Fund, a fund established by NLnet with financial support from the European Commission's Next Generation Internet programme, under the aegis of DG Communications Networks, Content and Technology under grant agreement No 957073. Applications are still open, you can apply today.</p>

<p>What if all our decentralized apps and platforms could share trust/ratings/attestation information, in the form of portable cryptographically signed claims? What if this self-sovereign, user owned and controlled, privately sharable trust network could become the backbone to unite our many disparate decentralized web apps and platforms? These are the goals of Trust Graph, and its reference implementation built on Holochain.</p> <p>In this talk we will cover:</p> <ul> <li>TrustAtom format: ...

<p>Why is code open source, but data still locked into silos of big corporations? In this talk we asses the current situation of the web, and evaluate what we can do differently with Web3. We look into what it means for data to be "open source", the implications for developers as data is not locked into their apps, and the core pieces of technology that makes this possible.</p>

<p>Video is foundational to the web experience, representing roughly 80% of internet bandwidth. Using desktop, mobile and other devices, video is how individuals learn, work, create, are entertained, and share their human stories. Given that all industries have a need for video and that mainstream audiences are increasingly interested in Web3 solutions, understanding the advantages of decentralization and openness at technical and user levels is essential if these solutions are to be ...

<p>Peer to peer to protocols (P2P) are useful for creating applications that are less reliant on central physical and digital infrastructure. With a p2p backend, an application can easily move between connecting people over the internet, to local and ad-hoc networks, and working entirely offline. We take this ability a step further by integrating several protocols into web browsers so that applications can be authored and distributed just like any other data in the network.</p> <p>This talk will ...

<p>The Flux Ecosystem is a suite of decentralized computing services and blockchain-as-a-service solutions together to offer an interoperable, decentralized AWS-like development environment. Flux utilizes a native POW coin to power this ecosystem, providing incentive for hardware hosters, governance on-chain, and bad actor mitigation via staking requirements for running hardware. The Flux operating system runs on top of Linux to provide the network with verified, enterprise-grade compute power ...
