Now let’s go for some future-logistic (or maybe some tech-apocalypses)
Based on the note “These Are the Hottest New Open Source Projects Right Now” and specifically in the section “Beyond Bitcoin”, I have to say projects like Storj, IPFS and OpenBazaar make my mind rolls.
Bitcoin is a beautiful concept – some kind of altruist- and I can think there millions, including myself, expecting what will come out in the mid-term before do anything with it. But, when I’m seeing projects like the ones I’ve just mentioned, I’ve got a bit worried – so far just a bit – and I think: Is this coming a real trend?
And how this new pattern would affect today’s cloud? And the Datacenter industry? my job?
So far, signals that make me sleep with an opened eye. Will I have to re-invent myself to face changes like this in the mid-term?
How fast your operation can change to adapt to a supposed situation that somebody get succeed building apps over a secure peer-to-peer transaction?
Would laptops and mobile devices replace centralized servers and storage in the long-term?
Is this a glance of an eventual death of Browsers, Web Apps, DNS, etc… as we know them today?
Designing to the future and see what we can do for surviving:
Maybe datacenters could virtualized millions of peers to bring proximity and the companies behind supporting this application would pay for such resources… Peer-to-peer is a solid solution. A big issue could stay on how many copies of data are saved into different users, how this can bring any guarantee that data will be available at 100%?. There is not a centralized control of what would happen.
The good thing, there won’t be a such attack like DDoS, or it will be very difficult for a hacker compromised the complete users’ database. All user data will be globally distributed into millions of devices. you will have a hash to validate every file in the network. However, It will be a real challenge to bring a good support to every user in the network.
I’m tired now, it was a long day. Good night!
