CollabTalk Podcast | Episode 111 with Rob Solomon


For Episode 111 of the award-winning CollabTalk Podcast, we focused on building apps and services that compete on their merits, not on access to gated distribution channels. The conversation covered incentivizing users to share their data, the technical challenges of creating a decentralized, open-source mobility platform, and how a decentralized network will ultimately alter the competitive landscape.
