Episode 9: Owning a Planet

Posted by joelgrus on Mon 20 March 2017

Our guests this week are Curtis Yarvin and Galen Wolfe-Pauly, which means that our topic is Urbit ("a virtual city of general-purpose personal servers"). What is it? Why is it? Is is a political project? And does it have anything to offer data science types?

Curtis and Galen try to explain what Urbit is and answer Joel's objections, while Andrew keeps trying to tie everything back to ham radio.

Please listen to it.
