Episode 164: The road to Skynet & beyond with David Vorick

This week, Anna and guest co-host James Prestwich chat with David Vorick from Skynet Labs about the scope and goals of the Skynet project. They discuss the journey from earlier work on Sia & distributed data to Skynet, SkyDB, and their idea for Recursive Content Monetization – a new model to pay online creators and content owners.

They also chat about the SkyFeed project – a decentralised Twitter like project. In this part of the conversation, they explore how the decentralised community could potentially remove the harm done by the social chat algorithms, but also the potential impact – and danger – that fully decentralised systems can have.
