At a recent #BCTechSummit HyperLedger Indy developer bootcamp event in Vancouver, I was fortunate to be part of a conversation where Sam Curren (@telegramsam) was talking to a small group of developers about the importance, over the course of history, for Internet protocols to not only be open, but more importantly, open to innovation …innovations that might succeed as well as innovations that might fail.
“If you look at important Internet protocols like TCP-IP that enable packets on a network to carry any type of data including text, email messages, web pages, etc, and, later on, streaming audio and streaming video, who could have imagined it? It’s vitally important for Internet protocols to not only be open but open to innovation …innovations that might succeed as well as innovations that might fail. No one can foretell how the specifications we’re creating today will be used in the future.” Sam Curren, March 11, 2019
