Decentralization Returns the Internet to its Roots

The internet's fabled history includes such milestones as the Advanced Research Projects Agency's (ARPA) development of packet switching (ARPANET), paving the way for today's modern infrastructure, or Tim Berners-Lee’s research that culminated in the explosive adoption of the World Wide Web (WEB) in the 1990s.  Today, as microservices, Kubernetes and distributed environments and connections become more prevalent, the use of the Internet is becoming more decentralized as well.

In this episode of The New Stack Makers podcast hosted by Alex Williams, founder and publisher of TNS, Storj Labs' Ben Golub, chairman and interim CEO, and Katherine Johnson, head of compliance, discuss how the Internet today centers around decentralization — and more importantly — how decentralization reflects upon the roots of the internet.
