Picking up where the last show left off, Anders and Scott talk about Jerry Seinfeld’s brilliant series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and it’s availability only on the internet. We also talk about Tribe Tyler, an up and coming show only on YouTube, and dabble a bit in what Periscope will mean for live sports.
In continuing the theme of the last show, Anders and Scott discuss Scott’s current role as part-time CTO of a few startups, and how much time and energy are wasted early on in startups trying to find the elusive “technical co-founder”
Scott and Anders talk about The Interview, disruption of internet services by sovereign nations, and how a city in Portugal is pointing us to the future of interconnectedness. There’s a lot of talk about a magic bus as well.
Veniam – The company who built the network in Porto, Portugal
Scott and Anders talk about pseudonymity, credentials, privacy and security in this jam-packed episode.
What if you could have as many identities as you want, and they were all verifiable by a trusted source? And what if you could prove that you have the right to do something, like drink alcohol or vote, without the other party having to know who you are? Are privacy and security mutually exclusive or can they co-exist?
We based a lot of our discussion on a book by David Birch. We encourage everyone to get this book and explore this topic in more depth.
