In this episode, I talk to Sean Moss Pultz, CEO of Bitmark Inc. — a company focused on enabling personal data sovereignty through blockchain technology. We discuss Bitmark’s journey and the company’s latest pivot to Spring, an app that helps users extract personal data from Facebook and put it to work in all kinds of interesting ways.

We discuss Seans’s thoughts on data sovereignty and data rights as critical civics issues and look in detail at how Spring can empower a new level of control over your personal data, providing a much-needed counterweight to big platforms who regard your information as their intellectual property.

During these uncertain times, I’d love to connect with listeners more than ever. For that reason I’m temporarily opening the Patreon discord to anyone who wants to join — just email me at [email protected] and I’ll send you an invite. At times like this, we all benefit from exchanging information and ideas about what we should be doing and how to survive whatever comes next.
