Jean is project lead for the Holo ICO. She has been championing thrivability for a decade with several published books on the topic, the most recent of which describes organizational design and culture. She is bringing her skills and vision to the Holochain project where living system principles are being deeply woven into the design of a distributed computing crypto-platform.
…………………………………………………………………………………..
Holochain apps each use a monotonic Distributed Hash Table (DHT) to share data and enforce validation rules on data published from a user’s signed source chain. Each agent holds their own immutable hash chain and stores a portion of the app’s public data as a node in the DHT. This makes powerful and secure decentralized computing possible on devices as lightweight as mobile phones.

Jean loves hiking to Tennessee Valley Beach for a picnic with some Vinho Verde, crusty rustic bread, and a selection of cheese so she can savor the flavors while watching crepuscular colors shift on sand and water at sunset. ​
