Stockholm launch event

How do we collaborate to build a human-centric next generation internet? You are invited to an alliance working towards this goal. Internet of Humans is a track within our annual Edgeryders festival. It is dedicated to bringing together existing projects into a demo of a Next Generation Internet that supports values of openness, cooperation across borders, decentralization, inclusiveness, and protection of privacy. At this event, we will be telling our stories and getting acquainted with the roadmap of the Internet of Humans project. Consider this an introduction to how you could fit into this story, and with whom you could collaborate.

Location: House Blivande, Södra Hamnvägen 9, Stockholm
Date: Saturday 11th of May
Time: 13.00-17.00

Internet of Humans is a gathering of contributors to the Next Generation Internet, a 3-year research project that engages hundreds of original initiatives.

Edgeryders is a company living in symbiosis with an online community of thousands of hackers, activists, radical thinkers and doers, and just normal people that want to make a difference. We believe that a smart community outperforms any of its members; this is the result of people working together, improving on each other’s work.

#8

Hi! I’m sorry you found the registration cumbersome, but happy to have you attending. A part of our work in Edgeryders is academic research (one example here), which requires us to have users go through a consent funnel.

You’re very welcome to Edgeryders. What stoked your interest in attending?


#9

Hi @anton! Very happy to have you attend. I’ve seen the Quantified Planet site you built before, great work! And your manifesto is quite inspiring. Was there a certain point at which you decided to go ‘post-silicon-valley’? Or was this always the case?


#10

(Did not quite understand the credit card’s question purpose during registration either, anyway…) I am interested but won’t attend the Stockholm meeting, as I don’t plan to travel from France. I would like to see minutes and be informed of the outcome of those discussions. Cheers!


#11

I would love to attend! Im a UX designer based in Stockholm and got interested in this initiative which was mailed to me by the ”stupid hackaton community” - and would love to hear more about what it is and how I could contribute!


#12

I will come IF I can. I’m a computer scientist and is tech lead for a large swedish HPC center in Södertälje, Open Source officer and active in a number of tech startups. I hope I can contribute alot.

Yes! I was going to invite you explicitly this week, and now you saw it before I even had to. Really hoping that you can make it.

Sign me up, I’ll be there!

I’m an entrepreneurial type with a tech/coding background and lots of food related stuff on my resume. I am currently working on a few different projects with the ambition to accelerate systems change.

Some keywords: Regenerative food systems, Holochain, ValueFlows, platform cooperatives, distributed governance.

Ok. Will check travel org


#16

I’m planning to attend.

I’m the project lead for cryptpad.fr, which recently won one of the NGI awards.

I’m interested to meet the folks from Edgeryders, and anyone working on resilient or privacy-preserving technologies.

Also, it seems like a great excuse to see a bit of Sweden!


#17

Hi, I am interested in going, though I have no idea if I can provide any kind of input. I am a particle physicist.


#18

I you have a gut feeling of it being for you, it most likely is. What brings you to the topic? What are your thoughts about the current state and future of the internet?


#19

I got an invitation from Peder because I was at the stupid hackaton, reading about it I am interested, I think this is the kind of discussion we should be having. So I’m in.


#20

I’d love to attend, count me in. (I’m an ex-musician and ex-academic, nowadays self-proclaimed armchair anthropologist. Looking forward to meet and discuss with all the people here!)
