Hi, thanks for dropping by. This is my personal blog which I use to post my thoughts on a variety of topics. I have a wide range of interests but most of them share one common thread: an interest in questioning how technology is disrupting and, in many cases, improving the modern world, whilst keeping one eye on what the future might actually look like.
One of my key areas of interest is FinTech, Bitcoin and blockchain technology in general. I’ve been a guest on television and radio programmes discussing the subject, founded the Scottish Bitcoin Meetup, founded the Scottish Bitcoin Conference and gave a TEDx talk in early 2014 entitled ‘Bitcoin: More Than Just Money’. In addition, I’ve given talks and/or commentary to CNN, BBC Radio Scotland, STV, The Herald, the 360D Conference and various businesses such as Standard Life, law firms, accountancy firms, design agencies – together with many other presentations. If you’re interested in hearing more or need a speaker, just drop me a line.
If you have any thoughts about the posts, or some of the issues raised, get in touch via comments or social media – I love to chat about these kind of things!
