Monopolies, fake news, identity theft, cybercrime, data breaches, (re)selling of private data, security hacks, bandwidth throttling, mass surveillance, abusive trolling, censorship, (political) manipulation, centralization of power, addictive feedback loops and the list goes on. We can conclude the current web is dead, long live Holochain!
Holochain is a fully decentralized peer-to-peer (p2p) network and application framework. By changing the client-server architecture into an agent-centric one, users don't have to rely on trusted third parties and the network has no central points of failure. The users will get back authority and control over their data, access and storage. This paradigm shift will result in a new kind of internet run entirely by its people.
The goal of this meetup is to create a vibrant Holochain community in Barcelona. We do this by organizing different types of events like workshops; mini hackathons; brainstorm evenings; (product) presentations and more.
UPDATE [[masked]]: We have had to postpone the event to September, because of a change in plans and priority with other events.
New events with Arthur Brock (founder Holochain) and Eric Bear (Holo):
During this evening we are having a round table discussion about the different apps that are being created by Holo. We will learn more about these apps and how we can use them as building blocks for our own projects. As always, there will be plenty of room and time for questions and discussion.

"With the release of Holo’s Closed Alpha test network, I thought this would be a good time to share about the apps available for hosting on Holo. While there’s not a huge ecosystem yet, the apps we’re releasing are kind of a big deal, both for their individual capabilities and for their usefulness as building blocks for further app development."
This evening is also interesting for newcomers to Holo and Holochain and none techies. Hope to see you there!
