The Distributed Web
In the beginning the web was a decentralized publishing platform for static, hyperlinked media, primarily for human consumption. In the second phase, which we are still in, the web has changed to being a series of dynamic and siloed application platforms for both human and machine participation, these platforms are centrally controlled networks where content and commerce are powered by members and user participation. In these sessions we will discuss how Blockchain technologies, advancements in P2P hypermedia, with roots in both p2p file sharing systems and content centric networking, can lead to a third phase of the web; a democratized and global distribution platform that breaks down walled gardens and puts content producers truly in charge of their business.

The Bitcoin Workshop
Most current blockchain mobile applications are being developed with an intermediary cloud service provider instead of the mobile device speaking to the blockchain network or other types of related P2P or federated networks directly. In this talk, you will be introduced to companies who have developed solutions that are truly peer to peer and will discuss how you can build p2p and mobile blockchain applications as well.

Build Mobile Blockchain Applications
Blockchain solutions bring with them a significant amount of safety over traditional solutions but they are only one component of a larger system that is not hack proof, as the bitcoin exchange Mt.Gox showed us. Key management, secure operating system environments, including proper auditing, and a host of other security factors need to be considered. In this session we will review and discuss the most important security considerations, specially for enterprise use cases.
