On Internet Safety Day, We Note Safer Internet For You & Yours

The internet is a convenient, wonderful, yet scary place.

We don’t let our kids walk down the street alone, but we allow them a smart device; which gives them them access to the dark web?

I remember being 14 years old and explaining to a peer exactly how the “world wide web” worked…

The perplexity on his face still amuses me today.

Me: “See like, the internet is made up of a massive network of specialized computers, we totally call these routers. So, like… each router’s job is to know how to move packets along from their source to their own little destination. Get it?! Good! So, a cute little thing-y called a “packet” will move through lots…


Hypergraph Hour Episode 5 Recap

The first Hypergraph Hour of 2021 was exciting and a crowd favorite! In fact, we filled every seat and ran out of room in our pro Zoom chat room! The overflow quickly spoke up in our Telegram community and we released the event on YouTube a few hours later.

Hypergraph Hour Episode 5 was the first of the new year and provided an overview of the model Constellation is emulating. At Constellation, we are choosing to mirror the practices of Japanese multinational conglomerates. The concept is known as Keiretsu. …

Earth is a small piece of the vast and beautiful puzzle we term ‘outer space.’ Many of us have channeled our inner “Buzz Lightyear” and dreamt of the possibilities that exist within the infinite universe. We’ve all seen magnificent photographs and have been in total awe of what lies outside our planet. It’s difficult to imagine and makes us all terribly squeamish to note, but infrastructure in space can be compromised.

Think about it, while a power outage in a suburban setting can be mildly inconvenient, one off-world can be absolutely disastrous.

A Recapitulation of Our Phenomenal Growth Period at Constellation Network

Many have comments on 2020, most aren’t terribly positive. That’s not true here…. “Extraordinary” is a way we describe 2020 at Constellation Network. We firmly believe it was a year that we laid a foundation for further triumphs, for decades to come.

We Soared Great Heights in 2019 and We Flew into 2020

Our founders, core team, staff and community were supportive and encouraged the momentum at Constellation after our partnership with the United States Air Force in 2019. …


Interplanetary File System (IPFS) is a revolutionary way of storing and transferring files. This is a peer to peer (p2p) system of sharing and storing files that seeks to alter the method of information distribution on a global scale. This system is also capable of tracking the versions of a file over time in a permanent manner.

But what is the need for such a system, and what is so revolutionary about it?

First, we should consider the conventional method and then why IPFS is preferable to the standard model.

The primary structure of internet communications protocols is that of…


ABOUT

Many of us reflect back to childhood and think of our beloved stuffed doll, pillow or the amazing and classic Teddy Bear. Many of us are inspired by the love of a stuffed sweet Teddy Bear. But why? September 9th is a special day in North America for many when National Teddy Bear Day is celebrated, let’s explore the history and find out why we love Teddy Bears so much.

HISTORY

The story of how a holiday of stuffed toy bears actually begins with a tale (or tail) of why many of us naturally adore our fluffy friends and why plush…


”Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say.”-Edward Snowden.

The brilliance and usefulness within decentralization was brought to life via Bitcoin, the first successful case use of blockchain technology. Visionaries, Thought Leaders and technologists alike blossomed new ideas to solve real-world problems using decentralized alternatives to modern day technology.

But…. I like the internet, why change it?
Simple. There’s something very wrong here. HTTP internet applications, much like governmental and most financial systems are centralized, which…

InterPlanetary File Systems, To The Rescue!

Introduced in February 2015, TechCrunch Magazine noted IPFS was “quickly spreading by word of mouth.Source.

Despite sounding like a new “WTH?!” acronym for Reddit and teens, it’s not.

It’s possibly a key component to solving deep-seated but largely unknown problems that exist in today's internet usage.

Some believe IPFS, a new tongue-twisting acronym, is a tool that’ll finally evolve the internet from central entities to a world wide web of shared information, as our online founders always envisioned.

The Simple Breakdown:

IPFS = Git + BitTorrent

To understand IPFS or an Interplanetary File System, one can envision a file system that stores files and tracks versions over…

On Narcissistic Abusers Awareness Day we rightfully ask: Is Racism The Root Of This Evil?

In the matter of George Floyd’s death, I have one word: Disgusting.

There’s nothing “okay” about this situation.

The news headlines once again read, “Black Man Wrongfully Slayed by White Police Officer.” We’ve heard it on the news in America so much, we’re virtually desensitized: which is also not “okay”.

In recent years, particularly since the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014, police brutality has become a hot button issue in the United States. The number of homicides committed by police in the United States is often compared to those in countries such as England, where…
