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.


Travis Hairfield - The fundamental challenge of online communities is that success leads to growth, yet excessive population size leads to destruction of trust and community. What are our choices for overcoming this?

Michelle Lee - "Who cares about decentralized storage?" or "Crossing the chasm: how adoption will work for the decentralized web"

Eddan Katz - Decentralized governance methodology @ WEF.

Duy Huynh - Decentralized Autonomous Dataset

Kei Kreutler - "DAO Zero?" A talk on what full decentralization means for platforms like decentralized exchanges, questioning how to make the first decisions in a decentralized ecosystem.

Benjamin Goering - I can talk about https://activitypub.com and my implementation of it https://github.com/gobengo/distbin

Jehan Trembeck - I will speak about Althea. This is a project that lets communities form decentralized ISPs by integrating payments directly into a mesh routing protocol.

Dan Posch - Wikipedia over Dat. Happy to give a crash course on serving peer-to-peer hypertext using Dat and Beaker.
