A decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), sometimes labeled a decentralized autonomous corporation (DAC), is an organization represented by rules encoded as a computer program that is transparent, controlled by the organization members and not influenced by a central government. A DAO's financial transaction record and program rules are maintained on a blockchain.:229 The precise legal status of this type of business organization is unclear. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decentralized_autonomous_organization A well-known example, intended for venture capital funding, was The DAO, which launched with $150 million in crowdfunding in June 2016, and was immediately hacked and drained of US$50 million in cryptocurrency. This hack was reversed in the following weeks, and the money restored, via a hard fork of the Ethereum blockchain. This bailout was made possible by the Ethereum miners and clients switching to the new fork. (more)

Jason Kolb envisions a Personal Server which is basically an XMPP-based Proxy Server acting as an interface between a person and all the WebApp-s he uses. When you look at the network this level, you can see that the private server has another server sitting behind it which I like to call the storage server. It’s responsible for storing user data and running the guts of what the private server is actually capable of. In fact, the private server does nothing more than serve Web content and proxy requests to and from the storage server. All application logic and data storage is done on the storage server. (more)
Limiting beliefs are false beliefs that prevent us from pursuing our goals and desires. Limiting beliefs can keep you from doing important things, like applying for your dream job or finding the relationship you want (or leaving the one you don’t want). They can also keep you from doing unimportant things, like skydiving in your underwear or trying out that weird Scotchberry ice cream flavor that looks like baby vomit in a cone.
