  • Hear that?: Samsung wants you to have that crystal-clear smartphone communication in places where there is no cellular network connectivity, so it developed its own satellite-based solution, Ivan writes.
  • “Towns” hall crier: Taylor writes about Houseparty founder Ben Rubin’s new open source group chat app called Towns. Built as a decentralized app, it enables people to “build better hometowns on the internet” to “truly own their town squares.”

  • Tim Agnew, general partner, Bold Ocean Ventures
  • Peter Bryant, program director (oceans), Builders Initiative
  • Kate Danaher, managing director (oceans and seafood), S2G Ventures
  • Daniela V. Fernandez, founder and CEO, Sustainable Ocean Alliance (Seabird Ventures)
  • Rita Sousa, partner, Faber Ventures
