Cryptocurrencies : On the blockchain, nobody knows you're a fridge

You can find the interview here. Richard Brown, Executive Architect at IBM, knows what he is talking about. He understands the tech behind cryptocoins.

Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, solved this problem of coming to a consensus globally where you don't trust anybody else. I'm a computer scientist, I thought that was impossible. These guys have proved it can be done. So that have implications for both currencies and payments, for asset registers but also how we engineer systems for ourselves and our clients.

Volví a Bogotá

Ya no trabajo en Google, vine a trabajar con amigos en un proyecto de Software Libre que pinta interesante.

Bogotá es culturalmente activa. Estoy contento de encontar tantos amigos. No sé si volví para hacer una pausa o para quedarme. Creo que me voy a entregar un poco más al azar que mueve nuestras vidas.
