Woot! We just had Carson Farmer from Textile confirm that he’s coming and will present:
From before you even wake up in the morning, your day is being encoded into digital data. What started as simply our IP address, nic, or maybe email address has now grown to include our dating profiles, medical histories, mundane conversations, personality traits not even we are aware of, and much more. While our trails of digital data have become more detailed, the technologies that leverage that data have become more opaque and less in our control.
Decentralization, content addressable data, and technologies like IPFS give us a new framework to think about how data should be stored, controlled, and used in technology. To help get us there, Textile provides encrypted, recoverable, schema-based, and cross-application data storage built on IPFS and libp2p. We like to think of it as a decentralized data wallet with built-in protocols for sharing and recovery, or more simply, an open and programmable iCloud. In this talk, Carson will present how Textile can be used to build technologies that give users long-term control of their personal data while still enabling amazing and useful technology to be built around it.
