Re-architecting the internet around the individual with Evin McMullen, Co-Founder & CEO of Disco
Hello and welcome to Crypto Sapiens.
Today we are chatting with Evin McMullen, Co-founder of Disco.
In our conversation, we look back at young Evin, presenting to her parents about the fair use statute and why her use of platforms like Napster and Limewire constituted an educational, non-commercial use case. Her fascination with data freedoms, creative commons and MIT licenses continued in her undergraduate studies, where she worked with professors and fell deeper into the rabbit hole of identities across different digital platforms.
Evin has tons of experience in web3, including almost five years at Consensys, where she worked on Ethereum ecosystem development and where, as she says, "she solidified a lot of the ideas she has and philosophies that she holds about identities as they can exist in web3."
Anyone who has met Evin knows she isn't just brilliant but capable of breaking down complex subjects into fun, accessible bits, and this interview is no different.
We talk about surveillance capitalism, self-sovereign identities, self-custody of our traits beyond financial data, selective disclosure, and so much more.
