New blog post: The Future of Internet Regulation at the European Parliament
Last week, I gave three talks in Belgium, starting with one titled “Dear regulators, please don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater” at an event on The Future of Internet Regulation organised by the Greens and Pirates at the European Parliament on Tuesday.
This post has a summary, embedded videos of the talk (thank you, @vincib) and a link to my slides.
The recording of my talk today on the future of Internet regulation at the European Parliament is now available to watch.

The recording will be available later, but if you're interested in enabling a global consistent view on hashtags, know stuff about DHTs or #ActivityPub relays, you can have a look at the paper: https://git.orlives.de/schmittlauch/paper_hashtag_federation/src/branch/master/paper_hashtag_federation.pdf
Please contact me about any questions, remarks or other feedback!

If the blockchain really is the new Internet, we’re all screwed.

It's not going to be cataclysmic. It will just be many problems in so many places that none of them can be solved anymore. And help will become practically impossible.
