An introduction to SSB, the protocol, network, applications, values, community, and culture.

The Localized but Distributed Social Network


We’re joined by Dominic Tarr, a sailor, and the Founder of Secure Scuttlebutt. This curiously named project has a fascinating approach to creating a truly distributed social network.

Scuttlebutt and a Decentralized Future


Scuttlebutt can be transformative for society, decentralizing and enabling local community development. Perfect for environments which require offline workability.

Reinvent the Social Web
André Staltz @ FullStackFest


The times we live in have made it necessary to disrupt mainstream social networks. In this talk, Andre will present Scuttlebutt, from the Node.js hacker community. With fully offline browsing, new types of interactions, cryptographic authenticity, and data ownership, several opportunities for innovation are unlocked.

It's time to build our own Internet

TEDxGeneva 2018

Smartphones are not to be blamed. The infrastructure of the Internet, often hidden from our sight, provided the technological foundational for the problems we are seeing today. It is possible to build an alternative Internet, that make a new foundation for freedom in the digital era.

O fim da Internet

BrazilJS Conf 2017

Nenhuma tecnologia desaparece da noite pro dia. Assim como o telefone fixo e o Flash, tecnologias sofrem uma gradual redução de uso que pode durar anos ou décadas até desaparecerem completamente. Os primeiros sinais do fim da internet original, aberta e decentralizada, já estão surgindo. Nesta palestra você vai descobrir quais são esses sinais, o que vai acontecer nos próximos anos, e como uma alternativa à internet está sendo criada, usando apenas JavaScript.
