On 27 May the Competitiveness Council in Brussels announced a European decision to achieve Open Access to all scientific research data by 2020. This decision, and the implementing European framework programme for research and innovation Horizon 2020, will be recognized by future generations as the first serious step toward the creation of a prosperous world at peace. With this one decision Europe is turning away from centuries of war and waste; away from scientific reductionism, away from corporate ownership of public knowledge, away from legal barriers to innovation, and away from government neglect of the public interest.
All scientific articles in Europe must be freely accessible as of 2020. EU member states want to achieve optimal reuse of research data. They are also looking into a European visa for foreign start-up founders.

The blockchain is a cryptographically secured register. A long, long time ago we used to hook a line printer to important systems and they’d print a subset of their logging to it. An intruder taking over a box could erase the contents of /var/log, but that printout was immutable. The blockchain provides something similar, but it’s globally distributed, so *everyone* with access can write on it in an immutable fashion.
EXTRACT: Today an Argentinian freelancer who uses their banking system has to wait five days for an international transfer, lose 30% of his income to predatory fee structures, and run the very real risk that one of the parties involved in the clearing will simply misplace their money entirely. A Bitcoin based competitor can do this transaction at 1% of the cost in 0.1% of the time, make a profit while doing so, and there is nothing the government can do to stop it.
