Getting off The Grid and onto Hyperboria

Presented at LayerOne 2017, May 28, 2017, 10 a.m. (60 minutes)

Now more than ever, the desire to decentralize is manifesting into reality. Regional networks are beginning to pop up across the US and rest of the world (, but in order to gain traction needs to appeal to the masses. Getting connected to a mesh network looks and feels a lot like connecting to the internet (at a provider level) but with a cryptographic twist.

Beginning with a brief overview of existing mesh tech, this talk will be a deep dive on the CJDNS Layer 3 routing protocol which uses PKI for routing and lay out a road map for building a Los Angeles mesh local on the Hyperboria network.

    Working in Linux has been a passion of mine since I was young. Finding a balance between hardware projects and software has always been a struggle as I really enjoy both! During the day I focus on Cloud technology, but in the evening focus on emerging technology and fostering my local tech community.
