Episode 67: Decentralizing the Web

Listen

Web3, or Web 3.0, is a new vision for the World Wide Web where the user is in control. While Web3 has been called many things, there’s no doubt that its architecture enables for the democratization of the web.


The key concepts of Web3 include decentralization, blockchain technologies and token-based economies.


While the pervasiveness of fraud in cryptocurrency has tarnished the image of Web3, decentralization continues to be the greatest promise emanating from the emerging technologies of this new paradigm.


In this episode of Privacy Files, we talk to Daniel Harris, the Founder and CEO of Kendraio, an independent nonprofit research project, building free, open-source software with data privacy and autonomy at its core.


For the majority of this interview, we discuss the Kendraio app, a highly customizable, no-code environment to explore how people can interact with technology with more personal control.


The Kendraio app’s focus is on user-centric design, data portability, privacy, interoperability, and user-configurable interfaces.


It’s a revolutionary app that gives users control over their data, the process and the interface.


We also talk to Daniel about his thoughts on today’s battle for individual privacy.
