Nostr is a simple open source messaging protocol. But its potential impact on how we communicate, publish, and share information is profound. It radically reshapes our assumptions about web publishing and opens up new frontiers in free speech - a web without masters. Along the way it explores radical new approaches to product innovation, too. In this podcast I interview people building this future and host weekly news shows to keep you updated on what's happening in the Nostr ecosystem. Join me to learn about these new tools to build a more open Internet and to empower greater human freedom. I'm an angel investor and entrepreneur with over 2 decades of experience in Silicon Valley building technologies and products to improve peoples' lives.
Episode details

In this episode I catch up with my long-time tech friend Yanda Erlich. We originally met at Google almost two decades ago and have been friends on the journey building and investing in technology startups. We talk about our journey of understanding bitcoin together and our current hypotheses about artificial intelligence and its potential existential threat to Google.

But that’s all background to the Nostr discussion. I wanted to share my excitement about this new protocol and to hear his fresh-eyes perspective on what’s happening here.

I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation!
