Appears in this episode

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.
