Why Decentralization Matters – Chris Dixon – Medium
Cryptonetworks are networks built on top of the internet that 1) use consensus mechanisms such as blockchains to maintain and update state, 2) use cryptocurrencies (coins/tokens) to incentivize consensus participants (miners/validators) and other network participants. Some cryptonetworks, such as Ethereum, are general programming platforms that can be used for almost any purpose. Other cryptonetworks are special purpose, for example Bitcoin is intended primarily for storing value, Golem for performing computations, and Filecoin for decentralized file storage.

Flipboard cozies up to Facebook-weary publishers - Digiday
Mobile referral traffic from Flipboard is up over 350 percent since May, according to Parsely, albeit from a small base compared to Google and Facebook. Google and Facebook still dominate mobile referral traffic by a big margin, and Flipboard is a distant fourth after Twitter, according to Parsely.

“It’s become a sleeper hit,” said Jess Barron, vp and gm of, which joined Flipboard six months ago. “Every publisher is looking for the next big thing to provide us that regular infusion of traffic.”

Flipboard is not in the same weight class as Facebook or Google. It claims a monthly active user base of 100 million, less than 5 percent of Facebook’s 2.1 billion. And its audience doesn’t skew heavily toward a particular age group — its audience is equal parts millennial, Gen X and older.

Davos debrief Part 1 - by @dealarchitect
"That said, I heard several times where people were tying this back to social media and trust. You can draw a straight line through recent political events … You look at what happened in France. They went from a left-leaning government to a young centrist who had zero governmental experience. The UK had the Brexit."

Magic Leap CEO thinks volumetric video will be a part of live TV in five years - The Verge
Yesterday, Magic Leap CEO Rony Abovitz and NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced plans to eventually bring Turner-owned NBA content to Magic Leap’s elusive AR goggles, by casting virtual screens in front of a wearer’s face through the goggles. It wasn’t an earth-shattering announcement, but it was an indication that Magic Leap’s tech could be more than billion-dollar vaporware, and that the company is thinking about the kind of content needed to convince people to wear light-field face computers.

What’s more interesting is that Abovitz believes volumetric video — a way of capturing video as 3D objects and scenes — will be live-streamed to people’s faces within a relatively short period of time, and that the kind of cameras used to make this happen will eventually replace traditional broadcast cameras.

‘Black Panther’ Is Groundbreaking, But It’s Shuri Who Could Change The World
Shuri (played by Letitia Wright2) is the sister of T’Challa, the king of Wakanda and the film’s titular character. She oversees the technological operations of the superscientific nation. If you’re comparing T’Challa to James Bond, she’s Q.She’s also the funniest character in the movie, steals every scene she’s in and — for my money — the most important character.Here’s why: The volume of evidence shows that when audiences see on-screen representations of themselves, particularly aspirational ones, that experience can fundamentally change how they perceive their own place in the world. Black people have been historically underrepresented on screen, and black women in strong roles even more so. Shuri provides a science-y role model for black women, a group distinctly underrepresented in STEM fields.On the one hand, sure, movies are a product engineered to optimize financial windfalls for a small group of corporations and intellectual property holders. But on the other hand, I personally got interested in math because of Ian Malcolm, rock-star chaos theory mathematician in “Jurassic Park,” and you would not be reading this if not for that.So “Black Panther” is a big deal for a lot of reasons, but Shuri is chief among them.
