The whole planet is getting connected and building vast new communities. Billions of us are online, all the time. This online world thinks faster, and thinks differently. Smart, fast, and creative, our new communities are a very real challenge to old power and old money. And old money -- after its War on Drugs and War on Terror -- is now launching its War on the Internet. What is going on, and where will this lead us? Pieter Hintjens -- author, programmer, and activist -- tells all in this vast story of Culture & Empire: Digital Revolution.
Pieter Hintjens is a writer, programmer and thinker who has spent decades building large software systems and on-line communities, which he describes as "Living Systems". He is an expert in distributed computing, having written many protocols and distributed software systems. He founded the ZeroMQ free software project in 2007, and in 2013 launched the edgenet project to build a fully secure, anonymous peer-to-peer Internet. He is the author of "ZeroMQ - Messaging for Many Applications" (O'Reilly), "Code Connected", and "Culture and Empire: Digital Revolution". His blog is at hintjens.com.
