Decentralized Web Summit — Lightning Talks

Here is one of the best resources I have found so far to hear about the exciting new technologies which may underpin the next phase of the World Wide Web.

Go to the Decentralized Web Summit home page, scroll down to the “June 9th, Meetup” section, and watch the lightning talks (5- to 10-minute presentations) about decentralized web technologies such as IndieWeb, micro-payments, and the Inter-Planetary File System.
