Episode 39 • 🏛️ The Future of Government & Law

Circle with number 39

This episode, we take inspiration from a piece of news about Horizon State’s voting system and talk about how we see humanity governing itself in the future. Technology has changed the way we view many things and we’re seeing it used in a number of interesting ways to make human organisation and governance better. From Reddit communities about pretty much anything to ‘pop-up’ open-source jurisdictions, we go down all sorts of rabbit holes in our wide-ranging feature.

We also discuss a great new open-source communications program called Riot IM in our Privacy & Security segment, and look at Coin360 in our tool of the week. As usual, we also dive into a bucketload of news including a major US retailer ditching Visa, an update on China’s social credit system and improvements in automated trains.
