Still Techie After All These Years
As a twenty-something who began her writing career at Ziff Davis Publishing, I figured would last until the seven year itch. More than forty years later, I find myself just as mentally tickled as ever by the creativity, the foibles, the potential and the pitfalls of technology. Forty years ago I wrote that “this (computers) was more than just another hobby like golf or shooting pool. It will change everything about how we work, play and live, creating opportunities we can't even begin to dream about.” That was before the Internet (think Compuserve, Prodigy and AOL) and networks were born. Fast forward to MSNBC's Your Business, where I was asked how people of a certain age stay creative and fresh in a young person's industry. Mix the unbridled enthusiasm of youth with the wisdom that comes from watching an industry mature, and you've got something that looks like this. I hope you'll watch.

The Hour They First Believed
The New York Times recently published a special section on blockchain and cryptocurrency, To some, that signified the end of good ole days, and to others it serves as the cornerstone of a newly legitimized industry. One section, The Stars of the Blockchain Industry, named 11 key influencers, a mixture of Bitcoin miners like Jihan Wu, Wall Street early adopters like Michael Novogratz, and the 24 year old inventor of the Ethereum coin, Vitalik Buterin. Notably, women were well represented on list with Elizabeth Stark, an egalitarian striving to make Bitcoin blockchain more capable and SEC regulator Valerie A. Szczepanik. But where there are lists, there are list-dissers. Bitcoinist called the list a joke. Over the years at The Digital Money Forum, we've seen our share of A-listers, including: Michael Casey, David Birch, Vinny Lingham, Bobby Lee, Brad Garlinghouse, Patrick Byrne, Matt Roszak and Brock Pierce, to name a few.
