    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

    EB98 – Robin Hanson: Futarchy, Prediction Markets And The Challenge Of Disruptive Technology

    September 28th, 2015 by epicenterbitcoin
    When Robin Hanson invented the concept of prediction markets almost thirty years ago, he felt he had stumbled on a concept with huge implications. By allowing people to bet on the likelihood of future events, prediction markets promise to allow better forecasts and better decision making. Research into the area has been vibrant, culminating in Hanson's concept of Futarchy: A prediction-market based governance system. At the same time, the real-world applications have been few and far. ... Read More

    EB96 – John Clippinger: Developing A Social Ecosystem Of Trusted, Self-Healing Digital Institutions

    September 14th, 2015 by epicenterbitcoin
    It is often said that technology is neutral. It’s certainly commonplace for Bitcoin to be thought of as such. In reality, technologies may be characterized as an embodiment of human intention, and therefore, cannot be considered as culturally or politically neutral. At least, this is the opinion of our guest, John Clippinger. A research scientist at MIT Media Lab and CEO of ID3, a nonprofit which aims to deploy a new generation of trusted digital institutions, John has spent the last seven... Read More
