Wonder what's bubbling up in Tokyo or Helsinki? What the Budapest bootstrapper has been working on under the radar? The latest decentralized concept with only a white paper...so far?  Then this track is for you.  We'll turn the stage over to those with up-and-coming ideas to demo their code and DWeb concepts for you in 4 minute bursts.


Jay Graber - Demo of Twitter -> Patchwork bridge hack. Share ideas for linking centralized to decentralized social media

Ivan Vilata-i-Balaguer - Ouinet, a cooperative P2P web cache that helps overcome network interference.

David Vorick - An overview of the Sia platform

Stefan Thomas - We built a new way for websites to make money called Web Monetization. It's a proposed new browser API built on top of Interledger, which allows websites to request small amounts of money from the browser.

Sander Pick - Textile Photos is a decentralized mobile application where users can store and share encrypted photos

Sawood Alam - InterPlanetary Wayback: A Distributed and Persistent Archival Replay System Using IPFS

Chelsea Palmer - Decentralize Education: the Future of Participatory, Collaborative Learning (where we're going, we don't need classrooms - but we might need more structure than we currently assume!)
