Episode 22 • 🏬 Blockchain Centre, Internet Trends, VeChain and Tezos
Sometimes we have an episode which is so packed full of content it’s impossible for us to find anything to remove. This is one of those episodes. The feature of this episode is an interview with Jon Quidim from the Blockchain Centre, a Melbourne based (and rapidly expanding) not-for-profit who run a large co-working space dedicated to start-ups in the blockchain industry. We had an absolute pleasure spending time down there and we’re sure you’ll enjoy the interview.
In what would be the feature on any other week, we also do a deep dive into the mammoth ‘Internet Trends 2018’ report that was released recently by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. The report covers AI, machine learning, blockchain, subscriptions, advertising and much more, and it’s a brilliant reminder of just how quick the online space is evolving.
To top it all off, we cover VeChain and Tezos in our Crypto update, look at Yubikey in our Privacy and Security segment, ICO Alert and Dead Coins in our Cool Tools, and cover a few other bits of news from around the tech space to boot. Enjoy!
