In wrapping up my discussion of Tezos with CTO Arthur Breitman, the theme of "Trust: where and how much to bestow it" is central enough to make it the theme of the episode, though we cover a lot of other aspects of Tezos and blockchain tech in general with a bit more technical depth than the last episode.

This is the second of what we're calling The Hemp Corner of Technology & Choice. After doing a high-altitude overview of hemp and cannabis in the first Hemp Corner, we thought it would be a good idea to work at straightening out all the scrambled thinking about cannabis and hemp that has been brought about by nearly eight decades of prohibition and contradictory propaganda.

The hope of Bitcoin enabling fast, frictionless micropayments is one of the promises of the technology that has excited us all. But it's been a long time coming and, especially in Bitcoin, it has seemed a long way off.
Enter Ryan X. Charles and "Yours." Yours is a social media platform that will enable true micropayments that can get everyone that contributes value to the platform to get paid, proportional to the value given. Not a new idea, but Yours is about to prov...Read More
