    SAFE Crossroads #47, Resource Description Framework, SOLID and SAFE

    November 28th, 2018 by fergish
    Simpleton says, "We go a bit geeky on this one, but in a way that should be very accessible to most anyone." Our guests on this episode are Josh Wilson and Gabriel Viganotti. Both are front-end developers for MaidSafe, working with Resource Description Framework (RDF) in a number of forms, to enhance the uses of the SAFE Network. We really get down to what RDF is, how it relates to Linked Data and the Socially Linked Data (SOLID) project, and other use cases that are creating a real revolu... Read More

    SAFE Crossroads #46, Connection Needs of an Autonomous Network, with Spandan Sharma

    November 14th, 2018 by fergish
    Our guest today is Spandan Sharma from MaidSafe. We go over the results of the second community testing of Crust, the automated peer-to-peer connection library being developed by MaidSafe for the SAFE Network, and available for open source use by other P2P projects as they find useful. In looking at all that the upper network layer needs the Crust connection level to do, we get a peek at the Routing level, which is the heart of the SAFE Network structure.

    SAFE Crossroads #45, Approaches to Alpha 3, with Nikita Baksalyar

    October 30th, 2018 by fergish
    In this episode we catch up on some of the things that have been going on in SAFE Network development, where it's been and what's coming down the line now, including the roll out of public testing of the automated peer-to-peer connection library, Crust (standing for "Connected" "Rust"). How do you ensure all the nodes of an ever-morphing P2P network get and stay connected, even past firewalls and routers? How do you do it when most nodes are being run by non-technical people using their spare... Read More

    SAFE Crossroads #18 SAFE Network School, Class One

    September 30th, 2015 by fergish
    ####In this Episode#### We're happy to announce the opening of the Simpleton's School of the SAFE Network. Since the SAFE Network is being built on a very different combination of fundamentals than has ever been used before and because it is so intricate, it's not possible to just wade in and get a full picture of it without some work. This is especially true because the network is still in development and so can't be used and learned by experience, either. Therefore, the effort of this ... Read More

    SAFE Crossroads #40, The SAFE Network Primer

    February 22nd, 2018 by fergish
    The main problems in talking about the SAFE Network are understanding (1) the enormous scope of the project, (2) the various specific innovations it represents, (3) how those innovations interrelate in the overall system, and (4) why the approach is fundamentally different than pretty much anything else that is being attempted. Regardless of the technical level of the enquirer, Project SAFE has lacked a really good landing place to begin exploration into it. In this episode we interview ... Read More
