"What decentralised apps can you use today?" -- Francis Irving, co-founder Redecentralize.org, ex-MySociety, ScraperWiki & more
Francis will talk about Redecentralize Radar, which alerts you about usable decentralized apps. Why this service? What is a usable app? What have we learnt so far?
Matthew will give an overview of the Matrix open standard for decentralised communication, covering how it came to be, its current status, where it's going, the recent challenges of implementing end-to-end encryption, and how Matrix is starting evolving beyond group chat & VoIP scenarios to entirely new frontiers of communication :)

A brief demo of Mailpile, a personal web-mail client with an emphasis on privacy and encryption - https://www.mailpile.is
Look forward to seeing you!
When the web was created, it was open, free and decentralized. Anyone could share information and connect. Now it's home to vast monopolies. Many people's primary internet experience is limited to facebook. Even email runs on proprietary platforms.
We lack genuine choice and the freedom to disagree with their terms and conditions. It is time to push back and build alternatives... and ensure a future with competition, innovation, resilience, open standards and privacy.
