hi all! Onarbor wants to blockchain the world's files. Happy to answer any questions about Onarbor here!

@timrpeterson why / how did it start? what's the ultimate vision for it? what's the future of higher education? just some small questions to get us started :P

@eriktorenberg hi, Onarbor started out of frustration with two of academia's most precious components: publishing and funding. By many accounts, both are hopelessly busted. We feel that combining crowdsourcing/crowdfunding with the technology afforded by the Blockchain has the power to revolutonize the university. With Onarbor, we aim to create an API that will facilitate universal, transparent, and sustainable knowledge and creativity. Due to the Blockchain, we imagine a future of higher education that is distributed and not centralized by incumbents such as the ones we currently work at, Harvard and MIT.

Onarbor is collaborating with guys behind Monegraph and the ProofOfExistence (see Related Links) to bring you all the world's important files in the Blockchain. This is huge for publishing across all types of content creation from Youtube to academic texts.
