Version 2.01 no time to cry

lecture: Locking the Web Open: Call for a Distributed Web


Locking the Net Open: Transforming the Web into a truly distributed system that’s all fun, secure and reliable. Using Javascript, peer-to-peer tech, bitcoin and blockchain, we can build on top of the current web to build a system that protects reader privacy, is reliable against hardware outages and censorship and stays fun.

Micro version of the talk:

20 years after the World Wide Web was created, can we now make it better? How can we ensure that our most important values: privacy, free speech, and open access to knowledge are enshrined in the code itself? In a provocative call to action, entrepreneur and Open Internet advocate, Brewster Kahle, challenges us to build a better, decentralized Web based on new distributed technologies. He lays out a path to creating a new Web that is reliable, private, but still fun—in order to lock the Web open for good.
