Josh and I were really excited to have on Ned Scott & Dan Larimer of Steemit with a skeptic Brian Sovryn, and Ryan Singer (a supporter but with an interesting background in business that I thought would be a good addition to the conversation). The show was a spirited discussion about Steem, the upcoming curation guilds, Steem wealth distribution, and Identification/plagiarism among others. I also made the announcement that I will be performing at Steemfest in Amsterdam (y'all better go! Steemfest.com)!
