    Technology and Choice #14 LBRY

    March 6th, 2017 by John Ferguson

    In this Episode

    Recently caught up to Jeremy Kauffman, Founder and CEO of LBRY, a protocol and platform for sharing digital content, with incentives for all.

    The first part of the show is a replay of an earlier interview form July 2016, because it's hard to improve on for a clear idea of how LBRY is supposed to work.

    The last part is the recent interview, where we catch up on how things are going, some of the bumps in the road since July, and projections for the future.

    Technology and Choice #13 The Tech of Hemp, Our Estranged Intimate

    February 14th, 2017 by John Ferguson

    An "Intimate" is someone or something that is not quite Self, but does not have the feel of Other.

    In this Episode

    We're very, very jazzed to be introducing a new series within the Technology and Choice podcast, dedicated to the technology and choices of Cannabis, a plant species which encompasses so very much more than just its psychoactive variety, marijuana.

    Co-Host Michael Bright of The Hemp Connoisseur Magazine joins John for this periodic series, to assist in exposing the in...

    In this Episode

    What is the most basic action in the universe? Influence.

    Technology is all about better directing influence, whether it be influence on the environment, the materials at hand, electronics, software, or people. And there is a lot of technology on the nature of influence and persuasion amongst people.

    Technology and Choice #11, Storj, Shawn Wilkinson

    December 7th, 2016 by John Ferguson

    In this Episode

    Great talk with Shawn Wilkinson, CEO/CTO of Storj Labs, about the Storj network which is about to go live in a very big way in headon competition with Amazon Web Services and the like. Hey, AWS, et al, you will be absorbed. Resistance is futile. App developers, as well as anyone who has some spare hard drive space they'd like to make some money with, should find this an entertaining and informative listen.

    Technology and Choice #10, Value Choice

    November 17th, 2016 by John Ferguson

    In this Episode

    While visiting my friend and associate, Travis Remington, in his home in Utah, we recorded this conversation to give some background on where we are going with our specific business idea, but more broadly, we wanted to open-source our ideas (at least partially for now) on expanding the implementations of cryptocurrency-related tech into the broader environment. In a short phrase? "Tie it all together."
