    Building a new peer to peer internet

    Building a new peer to peer internet

    Galen Wolfe-Pauly with Tlon joins us to explain how his team is building a new peer to peer internet.
    Galen Wolfe-Pauly is CEO of Tlon, the company building Urbit. A designer and technologist, Galen grew up in the woods near Santa Cruz writing code, designing websites, and building software and digital tools. He eventually left the cypherpunks and hippies of California to study architecture at the Cooper Union in New York.
    Galen is interested in building long-lasting software to help people control and shape their digital lives and communities. After over a decade building conventional software for companies big and small, he realized there was no way personal computing was coming back on its own. Soon after, in early 2014, Galen decided it’d be better to just do the whole thing over again and started working on Urbit.

I was a guest

I was recently a guest and I have to say the quality of production is great and the conversation was fluid. I really enjoyed it and I wish the show the best. Can't wait to hear other interviews. Thanks for having me on!

Great Introduction to Cryptocurrency

I’ll be the first to admit that I have a very limited knowledge of how cryptocurrency works but Richard does a great job of explaining things in a way that I can comprehend. This podcast seems like it would be an excellent asset to both newbies to the subject as well as for those more familiar.
