Isn't it the artists and philosphers, the archivists and historians who interpret each new wave, codifying it for our times? So it was no surprise to find artists such as Taeyoon Choi of the School for Poetic Computation in New York already documenting the Distributed Web of Care for society.
We hope you will take the time to wander through the Decentralized Internet Archive library downstairs in the Protocol Ore Mill, where the ore was once crushed into dust and gold; wander through the SF Mint's catacombs to explore secrets from black boxes to cryptographic primitives. If the Decentralized Web takes hold, it may be because this group went first to pave the way.
