So, What If Mother Nature Built the Internet?

Matthew Schutte


Many are seeking new strategies to weather big change as our current responses to societal breakdowns are proving seriously inadequate.

Encouragingly, the natural world has evolved dynamic systems of collaboration, thriving + survival that are inspiring new forms of societal communication, coordination + learning.
New bio-inspired internet architectures like Holochain show tremendous promise. But are new tools enough?
Trying to respond to these shifts with old mental models + approaches limits how much progress we can make (if, frankly, any at all).
Join thought leaders + practitioners to challenge many long-held assumptions + discuss how living systems are inspiring robust solutions to previously intractable problems and creating hope for a thriving + regenerative future.
