Episode Notes

You'll quickly understand that Tom Wilson is dedicate to providing resources to other builders, and most recently, those building on Arweave. What started as an initial tutorial for 8pin, has grown into, with regular tutorials on Youtube and more. He's also the founder of, which enables developers to build just about any application by taking advantage of Hyper's single API entry point and composable services. In short, its the "easy button" for creating back-end services. 

Tom has been building software for several decades, and he has a long and impressive history of creating value. We dive deep into how Permanotes works, what's to come, why it's important to give to the community, and what the future looks like of what may be called "DataFi" on Arweave. 

Our guest is an inventor, he sees opportunities and gets to building with a curiosity and drive that creates an energy wherever he finds himself online.
