Hi,
My name is Chris Rydings and i work as a CTO for a global company based out of Scotland, UK. I have always been interested in computing, be it Programming or Infrastructre, since i was very young and have had the pleasure to live and work with some of the best around the world throughout my career. Started out as an engineer working alongside some of the “big players” and really grew my curiosty and career from there.
I came across SAFE through word of mouth via a friend. Since then i have been reading and following the design and principles around the projects listed and watching as they interconnect and grow.

Hello!

I am beginning to learn web development with my partner. We would both like to learn how to develop our websites on MaidSafe (which has to do with an app sharing about moving away from speaking in a way which is bureaucratic and voiding ourselves of responsibility to complete responsibility for our words, intentions and actions - love as a language of life).

I am interested in growing the consciousness on this earth through love, awareness and pure intention. Decentralized internet and cryptocurrency are paramount in moving away from power being in the hands of a few to everyone having a voice to build a more sustainable, more supportive earth. We have enough resources already to take care of everyone. I am excited to explore MaidSafe further and would love to chat with anyone who values yoga (union) and whom shares the same sentiments.

I’m Nick. I have been fascinated with computers since age 7. I taught myself circuit design and built my own computer and got interested in the hardware side of computing. I started learning to code. I learned about the free software movement and got involved in what they are doing by giving speeches, sharing with peers, and switching to free software. I am a compsci major in university always looking toward the future. I started off fascinated with IPFS, ZeroNet and Tor. I am a long time user of Tor.

When I found out about Bitcoin, I was floored. I thought it was the future. After carefully studying it and seeing the critiques, I decided that blockchain on its own could never scale and also that fees were unacceptable. So I began looking into various other projects and eventually found Iota, which is a DAG. After months of researching Iota while studying and working, I discovered that there are problems with it as well. There are big unanswered questions. It wasn’t clear to me that what they were trying to do could be done with a DAG, at least not without radical changes to their core design. They were also struggling with scaling issues. Then I found MaidSafe. I looked at this website and watched some of the videos and was very skeptical.

Decentralization, security, privacy, anonymity, freedom and a digital economy are all main interests of mine. So when I learned of Safenetwork, I thought it was too good to be true. That is, until PARSEC was released. I watched the Youtube videos explaining it several times. I educated myself on self-encryption which is very brilliant. I learned more about DHT, and XOR addresses, proof of resource, and generally how all these components would fit together. I see that all the big questions have already been solved with Safenetwork. This project is how the internet was meant to be. Safenet is what I always wanted and didn’t know until I saw it.

I wasn’t even sure creating a network like this was possible, or at least not in the near-term. But the technology is solid. It will give power back to people, and make the internet a more private, secure, anonymous, fair and accessible place for everyone. I would be interested in contributing any way I can.

Hey people! My name is Lorenzo, I’m a computer science university student about to graduate and I’m passionate about cryptocurrencies. I treid almost anything, PoW, PoS, PoC… and then I found you guys via steemit. I really like your proof of resource concept, because I find the standard PoC either risky, centralized or overall buggy. I wish to start contributing soon to the network by farming, in the meantime, see you around the forum!

Hey people!

my info:
I am Christos Tsekouras and I am half Greek half Polish born in Greece and living there with some summer vacations to Poland to visit relatives and escape heat of Greek summer!

my interests:

  1. all technology from very young age:

    • I would fix flashlights
    • make and fix hobby cars, boats, airplanes - gas powered or electric
    • use all kinds of tools for every fix I could get my hands on
  2. arts:

    • music:
      • mainly piano
      • but also greek torlek (toubeleki) - en wiki page for greek torlek (link-enDOTwikipediaDOTorg/wiki/Toubeleki) - (gr wiki page - toubeleki) (link-elDOTwikipediaDOTorg/wiki/%CE%A4%CE%BF%CF%85%CE%BC%CF%80%CE%B5%CE%BB%CE%AD%CE%BA%CE%B9) ,
      • as well as self taught guitar (online sources) and scratched a violin bought for 25€ from a peddler (a street seller at traffic light intersections).
    • paint: in my high school had a lesson about painting, we did pencil drawing of real model items and I made my arts teacher comment really positivly for my work.
    • dance
  3. theoretical:

    • physics
    • math - where I went to a math competition in high-school and passed the first phase!
    • philosophy
      • read the great book by (Alice Miller)(link-enDOTwikipediaDOTorg/wiki/Alice_Miller_(psychologist)) - Prisoners of Childhood (1981) [ISBN - (0-465-06287-3) - (link-enDOTwikipediaDOTorg/wiki/Special:BookSources/0-465-06287-3), which is The Drama of the Gifted Child under a new title
      • going to a philosophy-theology-psychology open lessons in (New Acropolis)(link-enDOTwikipediaDOTorg/wiki/New_Acropolis) an international organization with a goal to provide cheap to free knowledge about the psychological-theological truths of the world organizing lessons and events to open peoples minds with what phylosophers and poets have said and done in their lives!!!
    • psychology
    • biology
  4. hobbies:
    4.1. from dance

    • just dancing young to all music with my cousin being close in age making people happy in events!
    • later as a young adult learning - in universities - and dancing latin dances and argentine tango
    • and continuing to specialize by self learning argentine tango which end up:
      • organizing free lessons and events
      • where I applied my psychology/philosophy findings
      • which lead to creating a method of learning argentine tango
        1. where a male student can dance anywhere with any dama and enjoy the argentine tango dance in just 2 weeks to 1 month
        2. and female a dancer student do the same in 3-4months! (thats because a male dancer has just to learn the basics to lead and he can dance with any moves he knows, but a dama has to learn how to follow many different kavaliero’s and their advanced moves! - although thats needed because argentine kavaliero’s dont know what argentine actually is - which is leading any dama even if a dama has never danced argentine tango, or any dance)

    4.2. to athletics:

    • from walking distances to skateboarding, bicycling
    • to sports based on playing with balls or similar like Shuttlecock for badminton
      • played somewhat semi-professionally basket in my highschool and local basketball team.
      • tennis
      • ping-pong - where I got bronze medal in high-school
      • badminton
      • volley
    • to extreme sports like:
      • winter ones’: ski, snowboard, ice-skating, snow-slating
      • summer ones’: swimming, windsurfing, beach volley

I want to thank my parents for all this I was able to do, because my ancestors fought in liberating wars, worked hard, believed in good behavior, in family and society!

I wish SAFE Network really do what it is supposed to do so all people in the world have the same freedom to persue multiple interests and not live dark lives, either economical, political, or mind prisons!

p.s. dama is the female dancer and kavaliero is the male dancer

Hey everyone, my name is Brock Wilkie. I recently graduated college and have my first technology job as an IS Analyst. I am learning a lot from groups like this and want to continue to grow. I want the worlds problems fixed so often there is a system in place that prevents that from happening. That is why I try to get involved in groups like this that create a better system that doesn’t hinder individuals. I am sure I won’t be contributing nearly as much as many of you but I will do what little I can!

Hi, My name is Patrick Wilcox. I’m just very interested in learning about everything crypto and seeing how I fit in with everything that is happening. It’s all very exciting to see the great possibilities in decentralized applications from storage to email, finance, and so much more. I’m a professional landscaper and interested in growing healthy sustainable food and teaching people how to balance minerals in the soil. I’m sure somewhere down the road the things I’m interested in will have some blockchain applications. I hope this post is going where it’s supposed to. I’m new to alot but I do think I have a keen mind.

Greetings from the south seas!

Journalist by trade, troublemaker by nature. Wannabe developer, but lack the patience, let alone the intelligence.

Living on remote islands for around three decades has made me a fan of simple, easy and preferably free low-tech approaches to bridging digital divides. I would love to work with people who can turn simple text messages into web pages as a way of connecting rural sellers e.g. farmers with urban buyers, such as hotels.

Similarly, people that can create value for the unbanked via online financial services. Only when people have the financial means can they then participate more fully in democratic debate, such as responding to news.

Doing so securely is one of the main reasons for my interest in services like SafeNet. I am especially interested in services that promise returns to users, rather than costing them money they don’t really have.

Great looking community here, and enjoying the set up - thanks!

Hi, my name is John and I’ve been following the project for a couple of years now. I’m an engineer and grew up with computers so have some understanding of what the team is trying to accomplish (sadly very limited programming skills). Decided to pass on BTC back in 2010 when it was $7 a coin (oops!). Learned a lot since then about what drives crypto…

I still stand by my first thoughts of BTC as being an un-backed currency that does next to nothing at great energy expense, though. I think a lot of the the hype was/is around the potential of the technology more than the reality, and the fact that there still aren’t any great alternatives as a currency. Which got me here. SAFE to me is everything BTC is not plus so much more. I am truly excited both about the investment opportunity and the technology itself and how it will enable more security, freedom, and ability to share ideas. I think there is a perfect storm here of big tech censorship, government word policing, excessive banking regulation, and the need for a crypto that doesn’t have the overhead of blockchain. The SAFE network fits right into this as a novel solution at the right time. And the idea of replacing server farms with each user’s own spare capacity in the form of vaults/nodes is just genius. And it is that infrastructure (plus maybe the data stored on the network) that is the intrinsic backing behind the SAFE coin.

Anyway, just some of my thoughts that got me here…

My name is Pekka Nikander and I’m a researcher, developer and serial entrepreneur in my 50s. I’ve been to the Internet longer than Google, and therefore Google knows about me much more than I would like. (I have one namesake; he is a bird photographer.) I first started to use the Internet back in 1987, when it arrived to Finland.

Having the privilege of enjoying academic freedom, together with my research group we are studying how to enable anti-rival compensation and anti-rival governance models. I presume that may be of some interest also to this community.

Hello from a fellow C# programmer who has also done a fair amount of Python and a few Rust projects, and javascript, oh the javascript, is now a lot of my work it seems, using Vue.js when I can.

Furthermore, I have long tinkered around with gaming in various engines and languages, my main computing hobby. One of the most memerable was an open-source group project to implement a Shadowrun based game in the Unreal engine. I was the main Unrealscript dev and we implemented the turn based rules over real time in I think a cool way. The prototypes were pretty fun but, we had an issue with Microsoft’s gaming license on Shadowrun games at the time, and just keeping the open-source volunteer staff needed.
Recently I’ve worked on one graphical math project in Rust with Piston engine and a platformer game using Godot engine, which is scripted in a python-like language along with a GUI scene editor. It’s pretty enjoyable to use and seems powerful enough.

Hi everybody!

Allow myself to introduce… myself

My name is Lautaro and I’m originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I’ve been around computers since I was 8, with a nice Commodore 128. My cousin had a x286 and since he showed me that, was a one way ticket.

I learned C/C++ as a first language (was doing some basic stuff when I was a teen) and I used to exchange code with some friends through BBSs. Sometimes we set up a challenge like “let’s code a tic tac toe!” and everybody had the chance to use whatever the language they wanted to solve it. Was nice!

In Argentina, Internet arrived on mid 90s (if I can recall it right) and that was a revolution for me. My dad gave me as a gift a 3 inch diskette with an email account on it. I was able to surf the web via gopher!

Well, I can write a lot of paragraphs about this but it’s the “introduce yourself” topic, so here we go.

Argentinian, Software Engineer, worked in Barcelona and Berlin (always in IT), now taking a sabbatical that is trying to reach the end. I’ve been always concerned about privacy. It all began when a colleague of mine was studying/researching in France and told me “Do not use google in any way, it’s going to be a huge database of people” aaaaand here we are.

I’m an active user of DuckDuckGo, Signal, Firefox, VPNs and Tor. Now I’m trying to get into Maidsaife and the Safe network. Decentralized and encrypted internet is the way to go IMHO.

Climber, cyclist and sometimes footballer. Melomaniac

I’ve worked mostly with scripting languages like php, python, ruby, javascript; frameworks like RoR, Django, React. Sometimes I compile too (Java, C/C++, Rust)

Glad to see that day by day there’s a honest interest in privacy and security on this incredible thing that the internet is.

Nice to meet everybody!
