Sometimes the urge to layer in-jokes into a podcast title is impossible to resist. . . and then 24hrs later you change it.
The effort to understand the significance of type based and functional programming languages led me to the Urbit project. This attempt to re-design the internet is one of a number of technologies that have evolved alongside blockchain and address some of the same problems. The Urbit developer's focus on mechanical perfection is a sensibility worth observing.
The first title was in reference to Mike Goldin's tweet about deterministic finite automata: twitter.com/voidsnax/status/712044031090540545
This from the Urbit website: "We believe controlling your own data, code and identity is the definition of digital freedom. We believe everyone needs digital freedom, not just a few hackers. We believe the only tool needed to solve this problem is a general-purpose server made for human beings. Your urbit is your cryptographic identity, personal archive, application platform, and device hub. It's as easy to manage as an iPhone."
