trent starts at 5 min..
7 min – big problem w internet in general.. getting paid.. compensating creators
8 min – whatever put on internet.. lose power over it..
10 min – is there a solution to this.. ? where personal data is sovereign.. equal opp for banking.. (why so many can’t get banking accounts)… lot of opps for more equitable society
11 min – elements of computing: processing storage community
13 min – purpose of database is query
what if life/equity is less about query of info in database.. and more about query of curiosity in person.. well then.. perhaps.. self-talk as data becomes our focus.. asking a person (self) everyday.. rather than asking computer… w/in pkg deal of existing info
34 min – icann got captured..
35 min – unmonastery
42 min – having title to land is bottom rung of ladder for climbing out of poverty..
well.. not actually..
let’s try disengaging from titles..
57 min – doing this for internet.. not for profit..
still killing us.. if talking pay/tokens.. et al.. missing the capability of the tech…
58 min – it’s a myth that you need a token based network in order to be decentralized
yeah. that.. (this is when i decided to add page)
1:00 – there’s probably going to be a market for cashing.. global cashing..
? .. is that a token..?
on speeds.. and cashing .. for consensus..
disengage from cashing .. from consensus..
1:01 – on scaling and databases getting full
deep address ness
A decentralized content registry could lead directly to a flowering of business models. Rather than relying on an advertising or streaming business model, many other ideas could be rapidly explored, to the benefit of all. YouTube pays less than 1/8 ¢ to play a video, even if I get 10 cents or $1 utility from it. In that difference lies opportunity for all — creators, connectors, audiences, entrepreneurs, existing rights holders.
why business..? imagine all the weight/space lifted if we let go of business ness and ip ness et al.. all the measuring/validating ness
We need a global content registry: a decentralized database for IP, as part of the emerging decentralized Web.
how about a decentralized database for connection
Interview – Bigchain DB | Dutch Blockchain Conference #dbc16
interviewer: your goal: to make a blockchain data base for the world.. that’s ambitious
trent: the internet was ambitious.. yet it exists… we want to
not just a data base for planet.. this tech can be used for enterprises.. for finance/banking etc..
why compromise us.. when you know potential of tech..?
we’ve been in the field before it was a field called blockchain for several years… 5 areas: identity; ip; financial; energy; supply chain
imagine we just do the last two..
the two main applications are the first two.. id and ip
imagine ps in the open ness
interviewer: world is org’d by countries.. that’s a *fact.. so for world data base.. how do countries interfere with that..
*fake news ness
trent: very useful to work w/in the law.. to help augment existing system.. ie: right now ip laws exist.. but if i’m a creator and someone rips off my work.. how do i prove that it was me
1\ how is anything one person’s work 2\ if no money.. measuring of transaction.. and all focus is on last two..energy and supply chain.. what does rip off even mean..
3 min – we need to build bridges.. we don’t advocate re writing laws.. here’s how you can work w law now.. but bit by bit.. build bridges to the new world..
4 min – diff ledgers that people can roll however they like.. ie: diamonds; banks..
*sharing data w/o fully having to trust each other..
6 min – land registry in ghana
why do we need that..?
germany’s largest electric utility.. de regulate as decentralization
My vision is to have a shared public database for the internet, to allow sovereign management of personal data and to celebrate the cultural commons while compensating creators. Towards this, I spend my days working on the IPDB network & foundation, BigchainDB blockchain database software, Coala IP protocol, and serving as an advisor to the Estonian E-residency program. These are building blocks towards my long-term goal – to help ensure that humanity has a role in an increasingly autonomous world.
