Trustless Computing Association (TCA) is the outcome of 17 years of expertise and activism by Rufo Guerreschi in the area of e-participation, free software, and bleeding-edge privacy-enhancing technologies and solutions, through NGOs and startups.
In 2011, the Trustless Computing Association (named at the time Open Media Cluster) was was establishedas the core innovation catalyst for the Open Media Park, a 47,000 sq.mts. and 150M€ media/ICT technology Park, which is planned to start construction in Rome, Italy, in 2017. The Park project was launched through a 2012 event, Open Media Forum, coordinated by the Open Media Cluster, with world-class partners and stakeholders of the Park and Cluster. By 2013, OMC gathered 13 world-leading R&D and industrial partners from the media/IT sectors to localize in a 5-6,000 sq.mts. innnovation center, and initiated large-scale disruptive R&D projects proposal centered on next generation open Web and cutting-edge IT privacy.
Since 2013, after years delays and burocratic problems, we decide to strongly aim the Open Media Park towards bleeding edge cybersecurity solutions, and, while the Park project was stuck in a deadlock, we used theTrustless Computing Association to foster world-class large-scale project to advance cyberecurity and create an ecosystem, that would eventually locate in part in the Park. Such effort have now produced the Trustless Computing Cluster and Campus, which is getting amazing traction in Rome, Italy.
