Dug Campbell Speaking Bitcoin at TEDx University of Edinburgh 2014 TEDx Bitcoin Talk

Hey. Thanks for dropping by 🙂

I’ve been writing for a few years now. Mostly these days I’m spending the hours wrestling ideas about all sorts of things into scripts.

But this site mainly has a range of my thoughts on 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.

My fascination with Bitcoin/blockchain tech and the potential impact of decentralisation for a while 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.

More recently, I’ve been 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.
