Help Us Lift the Fog on Decentralization!
The GETDecentralized community wants to do something fundamental: “To transform bureaucratic hierarchies into technology-driven networks” (Fred Wilson).
The Internet Archive and Jolocom invite you to GETDecentralized! An evening of conversation, celebration and community-building around new ideas in decentralization.
GETD Party will be Wednesday, April 1st at the Internet Archive in San Francisco!
Location: The Internet Archive, 300 Funston Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94118
6:00 — 7:00 pm, Reception
7:00 — 7:30 pm, Speakers (including Brewster Kahle and Markus Sabadello)
7:30 — 8:30 pm, Reception and Tours of the Internet Archive
Markus Sabadello, a long-time decentralization activist and hacker, will take us on a tour of the new technologies of decentralization. Learn what “decentralization” means and how we can all benefit from it. Markus runs his own open-source effort “Project Danube,” which is based on XRI/XDI technology and experiments with user-centric identity, personal data storage and Vendor Relationship Management.
Also Brewster Kahle, Founder & Digital Librarian, Internet Archive, will share his ideas about a “Locking the Web Open” through decentralized technologies. He’ll lead a tour of this digital universal library — 20 Petabytes of our culture’s books, films, music, software and Web pages. Hope to see you next Wednesday!
