This weekend is AdventureX 2019 at the British Library. It is a game development conference focused on narrative driven games like old adventure games from Sierra On-Line and LucasArts. Those have always been my favorite games ever and I didn’t realize people were still making games like those today. I knew and played some telltale games, the cave, and others which have reached my bubble but I couldn’t imagine the awesome games I’ve seen this weekend.

IPFS Camp 2019

Talk given at IPFS Camp

What if your web browser truly reflected your values - advocating for you, filtering for you, connecting you to others on your terms. What if your browser could be a full nodes in a distributed networks, or just connect directly to your friend’s computer without intermediaries?

While we’re waiting for mainstream browsers to catch up with our needs, we can experiment with building our own. What if you could build your own browser? What would it look like? What values would it have? What capabilities would it need to have?

We’ll show how browsers act as a value filter on our world, teach some approaches to making the browser truly be an agent that represents you_, and break into groups to start building our own _true user agents.

Mozilla Festival 2018

It is hard to describe MozFest for those that have never been there or even saw the pictures. The best I can say it is like a festival, like burning man or coachella, but for the intersections of networks, culture and digital realm. It is a chaotic ambient, where ideas storm and collide and beautiful things are made. Some of these things are like little seeds that will grow all over our beautiful planet.

Three years ago, I remember MozFest having 1500 attendees of which 500 were facilitators. That means that for each three people in the festival, one was there to help you learn something, unlock some skill, or build up some idea. This leads to a very powerful and empowering event. I don’t have the numbers for this year but I believe it was similar.

Decentralized Web Summit 2018

Talk given at Decentralized Web Summit 2018

You’ve built a distributed application platform that will change everything… but where is everyone? Browser extensions can lower the barrier to entry for early-adopters and developers to try your project. Prototyping in the browser is also a great way to experiment with what the future of the web can look like.

We’re developing a set of experimental APIs for building dweb applications using the WebExtension framework in Firefox. We’d love to have you try them out, and get your feedback and learn what you need to build dweb apps in browsers.

Join us and build your first browser extension, learn about the APIs for building dweb applications, and starting porting your project.
