Decentralized Web Summit & Internet Archive
Brewster Kahle and I first met the leaders of Jolocom in 2015, when they brought the first DWeb conference to San Francisco. It was very early days, but they have been pioneers and evangelists leading the way toward a decentralized future. Over four years of collaboration, I have come to know the remarkable team at Jolocom well. I've found them to be motivated by the highest values: openness, creativity, and making sure the decentralized web is a place where all are welcome. Jolocom has shown leadership in every sense of the word. I feel very, very lucky to work with them.”
