Introduce yourself


I’m actually Rob Drake, a hobbyist programmer living in a nursing home due to health problems. My brain and hands work fine, so I program or learn programming subjects to pass the time, beats playing Bingo. I found out about the SAFE network through a discussion on the SOLID Project chat and I like what I see here, as my programming skills advance, I may program a SOLID / SAFE bridge.


I’m from a somewhat non-technical background (public health informatics) with an interest in re-imagining the web and the social space on which it is built. Solid/SAFE are on to a promising start and I hope to see more of this in the future :blush:


A post was merged into an existing topic: Learn Rust, Contribute to SAFE, and Save the World


Hi all, My name is Vladimir Panek (Vlad for short). I have been always interested in cyber security and crypto currency.
I like the idea behind MaidSafe and want to participate in the project.


Hi everyone, My name is not john ordinary, I am interested in a range of topics with a bearing on this project. Distributed computing without centralised server farms and freedom of information without data mining and a whole load of other stuff. I’m not very techy, but reasonably competent in a few areas. If I can, I will learn Rust. I am slowly progressing in my understanding of programming languages, but have not committed to learning one yet. Have just set up Rust on Windows. Tried Python, got side-tracked. Dementia is setting in so I guess I’m going to have to work fast. Time for a change.
I’m going to SAFE Network: Brighton (Dec/2018) - Nikita Baksalyar talks about Crust, which will be totally over my head, but it will be interesting to meet with others interested in the SAFE network. More details:

In the meantime, I’ve got some reading to do:

At this point, I should probably transfer this discussion to a different part of the forum. Anyway, I have listened to this podcast and found it very interesting and the website is a useful resource, so here goes:

Nope, couldn’t embed an iframe. Shame.
