This is a woman’s view of the economy. And she succeeds in putting it in human terms. There are men who can describe the technical details for us – and they are very technical.
In my opinion, blockchain is a clever solution for a problem that does not exist. Just today I was sent OpenStack Storage for Dummies by Red Hat – and it has demolished any arguments against their standard, but comprehensive solutions. It doesn’t even mention blockchain.
The blockchain is a distributed database, a network, spread over many computers – where data can be stored securely. This data is digitized – an important point I keep making, over and over.
Our bodies are not computers. There is a lot of information flowing around in them – but this information is encoded chemically, not electronically. Taking milliseconds to execute – not the scant microseconds the computer needs.
There are people (and a lot of them) who assure us that the computer will somehow make us better.
But the computer has only made things worse.
