    September 22nd, 2015 by john
    I awoke on September 12, 2015 to the sound of Slack notifications going off just a few feet away from me. It was the morning of Blockstack Summit, and I was due to arrive at NYU for a sound check in less than two hours. I reached over and grabbed my phone to see who was pinging me and saw a message from Guy Lepage, UI/UX designer at blockchain authentication company and Blockstack sponsor Onename and one of the several people who helped me organize the Summit. “I'm at the office, ne...

    EB96 – John Clippinger: Developing A Social Ecosystem Of Trusted, Self-Healing Digital Institutions

    September 14th, 2015 by epicenterbitcoin
