And What of Liberty? Networks & Freedom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Your ISP is spying on your network traffic, Zuck pwn'd your social graph. Even darling Twitter has thrown indie developers under the bus for the sake of "consistency." You probably know all this, and you still go on using these networks because there are no workable alternatives. Except there are alternatives, and we're actively building them out! This panel will demonstrate running code and working prototypes, but it will also make a case for networks as a central component of human freedom. Come help us frame the problem, consider existing solutions, and spec out more responsible networks that you and your friends will actually use.
