We had the pleasure of speaking with James Walker of Fission, a decentralized web platform, about decentralization, IPFS, and his long history with digital identity.

James is an old friend of ours, and is a kindred spirit who values user agency as much as we do. For him that means designing standards and protocols that help to ultimately empower users, and we were inspired to learn of the work he’s doing. We hope you enjoy it as well!
