“I think a lot starts changing when you can actually trust the data.”

“With Fluree, you can actually grab the exact version of the database that was being used for that integration at exactly 12:01 AM and 0.23 milliseconds, and you can actually see and know what was in there, figure out what broke, and fix it.” —Brian Platz

E16 - Building A Movement Through Emerging Tech with Enigma’s Tor Bair

Episode 16 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with Tor Bair from Enigma.

In this episode Trent Lapinski and Tor Bair discuss privacy, blockchain, the problems with the centralized tech industry, security, and data science. 

“I don’t want to get too much into why truth is broken right now in the tech space, that’s a whole other can of worms, but I think we can all appreciate that it is getting harder and harder to know what is trustable.”

“The moment we start believing there is no other way, then it is just a race to the bottom. There will only be two companies in the World, and that’s if we’re lucky. There may only be one.”

“We have to be building a movement at the same time we’re building the technology. I think we need to be funding these kinds of solutions like this is the apocalypse event for the Internet.” —Tor Bair
