It’s episode 28 of This Strange Life Podcast and today the boys sit down with Santiago Siri, co-founder of Democracy Earth, to talk about a range of topics including liquid democracy, politics & corruption, the power of social media, fake news, and blockchain use cases. Santi has an interesting background, having grown up in Argentina and creating a political party at a young age. The party is called Partida de la Red and its in existence today. After that, Santi took an interest in blockchain technology and Bitcoin. He then went through the prestigious Y-combinator accelerator and started Democracy Earth — an open source governance software project for peer to peer networks and politics. He has some interesting first hand stories about why governmental elections are — and will continue to be — very corrupt & how centralized social media companies like Facebook are a problem that needs solving.
