Hi, thanks for dropping by. Welcome to my online home 🙂
I’ve been blogging for a while and things used to be a little more professional around here. I have a wide range of interests, generally with one common thread: questioning how technology is disrupting and, often but not always, improving the modern world, whilst keeping one eye on what the future might actually look like.
I was around Bitcoin and blockchain technology a number of years ago (alas, not ‘now a millionaire’ early, before the ransom letters start piling up…). That led to me being wheeled out to comment on various TV and radio programmes, founding the Scottish Bitcoin Meetup, setting up the first Scottish Bitcoin Conference and giving a early 2014 TEDx talk entitled ‘Bitcoin: More Than Just Money’. Other talks/commentary include CNN, BBC Radio Scotland, STV, The Herald, the 360D Conference and various businesses such as Standard Life, law firms, accountancy firms, design agencies etc.
I enjoy giving talks – so feel free to get in touch if you’re looking for a speaker for an event.
