Boston Linux Meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, August 15, 2018 - IPFS: The Interplanetary File System

When: August 15, 2018 7:00PM (6:30PM for Q&A)
Topic: IPFS: The Interplanetary File System

Summary:

IPFS is the distributed web: A peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol to make
the web faster, safer, and more open.


Abstract:

At this meeting we will dig into IPFS - the Interplanetary File System.
IPFS promises to take us way beyond the World Wide Web and internet as
we know it today.

IPFS builds on the early and existing technologies of the internet while
unshackling today's networked constraints in areas such as "internet of
things", by connecting endpoints with a true "internet of data". The
meeting will incorporate demos as well as discussions and close by
asking a simple question: Will IPFS become a fundamental cornerstone of
an internet-scale OS?

During the Q&A period prior to the meeting, 6:30-7:00 PM, Brian is
prepared to assist interested attendees with installing IPFS on their
laptops, which will make it possible for such attendees to "surf along"
during the meeting.
