This site has changed course since it was started in 2018. Then I intended on building a general purpose site covering many aspects of blockchains and web3 technologies. Since then I have realised that many other sites do that much better than I can working on my own, so I changed the focus to be more on documentaries and talks about the same things, as there seems at present to be no site that is doing that specifically.
I am particularly interested in examining problems of government overreach, censorship and surveillance, privacy, what has gone wrong with web2, and the idea of creating a new kind of internet, one which is much more decentralised than what the current one has developed into, that rewards content creators, and maintains privacy.
I am therefore interested in such things as web3 technologies (Blockstack, MaidSafe, IPFS), mesh technology (SmartMesh, Skycoin, etc.), alternative social media like steemit, Medium; and search engines like Presearch. If we are to build a new world it make sense to start using the technologies that will run it – even when imperfect in many ways – as it will help adoption.
As I use an ad-blocker myself there is no advertising on this site, and I basically rely on tips and affiliate referrals to help pay the costs involved in running it. If it has been useful to you please do consider tipping. And if you are thinking about signing up somewhere then the referrals posted here cost you nothing, and sometimes they will save you money also. Please do consider using them.
