Distributed Application Software Stack: What is Eris? - Casey Kuhlman

Casey Kuhlman, CEO of Eris Industries, will come to Switzerland to talk about their distributed application software stack.

The first installment of the "What is Eris?" talk will focus on the commercial and governance trends which underpin how Eris stack has been designed. In particular the talk will look at three topics:

(1) the spectrum of trust which is used in commercial and governance applications and its implications for distributed systems;

(2) the spectrum of power distribution within commercial and governance systems and how the centralized v. decentralized discussions present a false choice to advocates for change; and

(3) how the convergence of globalization, local movements, open data movements, hacker movements, and legal and financial technical movements will affect distributed systems' design and thinking.


This talk will be structured at a level approachable for non-technical people who have a relatively high understanding of how distributed systems operate generally.

    Thanks for inviting me all. I know the talk was a bit less technical and more philosophical than many would like.

    My slides from the Basel talk which was more technical are available here:

      It's flat html. Certs are fine. We're using a proxy which chrome mobile has just started complaining about. Fixing it is (somewhere) on the to-do list. :)

    Thanks for attending everyone. The second meetup at Basel was mind-blowing. It was a technical description of the Eris stack with a demo of a censorship resistant distributed video-sharing app using IPFS (http://ipfs.io/) and smart contract controlled block-chain.

    I should have organized it differently: Less time discussing the societal aspect (as at Zurich) and more focus towards the demo. Apologize for the slip up.

    We hope to put videos on Youtube in a week or two.

    Hi guys,

    Unfortunately, I can't make it after all - I am too busy with our Mt. Gox claims process. Hopefully next time!

      We will probably post a video on this page a week or two later.
