Hi, thanks for dropping by. Welcome to my online home 🙂
I’ve been blogging for a while now on all manner of things. But generally it covers a wide range of topics with a similar 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’ve been fascinated with Bitcoin/blockchain tech and the potential impact of decentralisation for a while which has led to me: being wheeled out as a commentator on various TV and radio programmes, founding the Scottish Bitcoin Meetup, setting up the first Scottish Bitcoin Conference and giving an early 2014 TEDx talk entitled ‘Bitcoin: More Than Just Money’. Other talks/commentary include CNN, BBC Radio Scotland, STV, The Herald, Heroes Festival in Italy, 360D Conference and to a range of universities and other businesses over the years, including Standard Life, law firms, accountancy firms, design agencies etc.
These days I’m helping MaidSafe to build a new decentralised network. The SAFE Network is the world’s first autonomous data network and you can read more about that in this post (and join the thousands in the SAFE Network forum here).
I enjoy giving talks – so feel free to get in touch.
