Hello everyone. My name is Brandon. I live in Ontario, Canada. I was directed here by Coincentral. I believe out of all of the crypto news sites they have the most filtered. Its so nice to see that there is a current and active community working on improving data storage where the competition is lacking.

To be honest, up until today I gave up on the whole idea of decentralized data storage because some of the “others” just don’t seem to be heading in the right direction. I have some hope again and I look forward to supporting this community however I can.

I am not a developer and I have no way to contribute to the technical end, however I would like to promote as much as I can.

Stay at home dad from the Chicago (USA) suburbs! In December, I happened to come across a year old “Top 5 cryptos for 2017” article that led me here and I’ve never left. I’ve been inspired to learn coding, but if I could only decide which one :man_shrugging:t2:

Just joined the forum. I’m new to the subject but this project seems really interesting to me! I like the idea.

Hello I’m John - I’m not a highly technical person myself, but I teach English to a lot of undergrad software and hardware students. I’m more interested in the points where art and philosophy mix with tech…for example projects like the p2p foundation Institute of Network Cultures and Fair Coop.

I’m Dave. I am far from a tech-savvy person, but I am interested in cryptocurrency and the idea of decentralization. My interest in cryptocurrency is what led me here and the more I looked into the idea behind the SAFE network, the more impressed with it I have become.

I believe that there are many great things about the internet, but I have become increasingly concerned with the amount of control that is being exerted on it by corporations and governments. The idea that a corporation can and will limit my access to certain things becasue they are not owned by that corporation is greatly off-putting.

I hope that the SAFE network becomes a firm reality and I hope to be apart of it.

Hi there, my name is Nat and I’m a writer/game developer (website here). I guess I became interested in SAFE because as far as I can tell, it’s the real-life version of the Pied Piper network in Silicon Valley. Am I wrong? :stuck_out_tongue:

Mostly self-taught as a programmer, I tried studying Computer Science in college for a year but found it unfulfilling because the community wasn’t diverse at all. With my academics veering more towards the humanities, I want to make sure I stay technically up to date by exploring new technologies like SAFENet.

I’m happy to learn of this crypto. Hope to add something to the ongoing development. Just saying hi, too. Need to get to the next level here! LOL
