Distributed Trust and Assets

First things first, Web 2.0 is the internet as we currently know it as interactive experiences and user-generated content. It is driven greatly by three core layers of innovation: mobile, social and cloud. Examples are: Uber, Airbnb, Facebook, and Instagram. “Web2 applications bundled data storage and application logic. The paradigmatic shift in Web3 is the unbundling of data and application logic. By unbundling what was previously bundled, data owners won’t need to trust application providers with their data.” Web3 is about self-sovereign ownership and control of data, enabled by networks that are now decentralized, without a central server that owns and controls user data.

Platforms and Networks: The Future of Mobile Innovation

Where, when, and by what means we exchange information is something that we as users of technology seldom consider. Though, we are quick to notice when a particular process does not go as planned, be it trying to send a photo with no wi-fi or attempting to stream a video with no connection to data. Whether we appreciate it or not we are constantly navigating between multiple networks, each with distinct functionality and utility.

The problem is, though these people may be close in proximity, they are not interacting with each other, and why should ...

Gradually, then suddenly ’19

I wrote in last year here a short piece on #Hypergrowth #Innovation and the need to stay competitive for firms.
