    How communities self-organize in web3 and cryptocurrency ecosystems, Dr. Andrea Baronchelli

    Ian MacRae talks to Dr. Andrea Baronchelli about how communities self-organize around cryptocurrencies and web3 ecosystems, and what we can learn about network effects and resilience from these communities. How communities self-organize in web3 and cryptocurrency ecosystems What is self-organization and how does that happen in a decentralized system? How is it different from organizing in physical spaces? Web3 was initially designed for peer-to-peer transactions, so how do larger networks form out of peer-to-peer transactions? After they form are these networks more static or dynamic? Some communities have emerged out of black markets, and these systems tend to be extraordinarily resilient, even under constant threat. What can we learn from how they've evolved, and are there any lessons we can apply to making our own communities, businesses, or society more resilient? Are self-organizing systems possible outside of web3 and decentralized environments? What is needed to make them possible and effective at large scales? How do web3 and cryptocurrencies currently overlap with our society and economy, and how are they likely to impact us in the future? Dr. Andrea Baronchelli is Associate Professor in Mathematics at City University of London and Token Economy theme lead at The Alan Turing Institute. He researches how we shape, and are shaped by, the socio-technical systems we inhabit using data science, mathematical modelling, and lab experiments with human subjects. His work has appeared in a wide range of top scientific journals (including Science, PNAS and Nature Human Behaviour) and has been extensively covered by the media.

After college he entered into traditional finance working alongside wealth professionals, but his love of interesting things pulled him into crypto back in 2013. What interested him was Web 3, although it had not been named that as yet. Instinctively, he knew that change was happening in this space. “It's definitely the hottest buzz word now, but even back in 2013 I knew I had slipped into the interesting section of the finance market.” Verheul defines Web 1 as read only, Web 2 as read and write, but Web 3 as read, write and own. “Going from centralised finance which is so laborious to decentralised finance is very exciting.

    A conversation with Glitter Finance co founder David Dobrovitsky on bridges in blockchain - what are they, how do they work, what can be the problems? Benefits of bridges Interoperability – Cross-chains solve the problem of interoperability within the blockchain ecosystem, and users can transfer assets to other blockchains without sacrificing the advantages of the host network. Cross-chain collateral – This feature enables DeFi users to transfer assets from a blockchain with value but little decentralized applications (such as Bitcoin) to another blockchain with a developed ecosystem (like Ethereum, Cardano or others). Scalability – Blockchain bridges designed to handle high transaction volumes ensure greater scalability. The scalability makes it possible for DeFi developers to deploy their applications and users to enjoy such services without giving up the original blockchain's liquidity and network effect. Efficiency – DeFi users can make and receive micro-transfers faster with cross-chain bridges without paying high transaction fees. This is especially important for the blockchain gaming and ecommerce experience. To learn more, tune into this episode. Your host is Jillian Godsil

    It is often said, digital technologies are driving transformative change in our society. But at what cost? As consumers, do we truly understand how information is being collected and used, and the associated risks and implications? Can we truly trust companies enough to just ‘click and ignore'?

    Something that is not mentioned enough is accessibility and thankfully technology has proven to be an enabler and lifeline to many, especially for people who are blind or vision impaired. Using technology has unlocked so much opportunities for them in their daily lives but also in education & employment. There is now less of a dependence on assistive technology as the strides in mainstream technology, devices, software and apps in embedding accessibility features has been impressive in recent years. The NCBI is heavily involved in making accessibility a part of everyday life, and Ronan talks to Kyran O'Mahoney NCBI Chief Technology Officer about this and more. Kyran talks about what NCBI does, his role with NCBI, accessibility is so important, accessibility tips for users of mobile phones and computers and where he sees the future of accessibility heading. More about NCBI: They have been around for more than 90 years and they want people who are blind and vision-impaired to have the same opportunities, rights and choices as others to fully participate in society. They also want to enable people who are blind and vision impaired to overcome the barriers that impede their independence and participation in society.

    Jonathan Dickson About the artist Born in Dublin, Jonathan is a Kildare based visual artist. After graduating from the National College of Art and Design in 1991 he went on to lead a successful career as a multi-award winning illustrator and designer. During 2006 he dedicated himself to further artistic development outside the design industry. Positive reaction to work created subsequently led him to make the decision to leave this career behind and commit full time to painting. Since then he has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions. His work is held in public, corporate and private collections in Ireland, Europe and the USA. He has also been the recipient of a number of public, corporate and private commissions. Artist statement I paint and document what I experience around me (the visceral as much as the visual) as acutely as I can. Certain places and objects I experience resonate and won't let me go until I work through them, sometimes I know why during the process and sometimes the obsession is revealed afterwards. I'm ever increasingly aware that hindsight reveals far more about my work than anything I could ever conceive up front and I'm happy to allow this to continue (for now). Allied to this I have a deep curiosity about the nature of perception and memory (both visual and conceptual) and how it affects the subjects that call to me.
