Quotable (#152)

Couched in spin rhetoric (doubtless grating to some), but still basically right:

We believe that a Cambrian explosion in companies and innovation based around blockchains is fast approaching. If we accept that the internet has caused a massive shift in how our society runs – with countless new business models, millions of new jobs created and significant disruption to incumbent media and information industries, imagine what it will be like when the entire decentralised stack is leveraged? […] Decentralisation technologies are going to transform existing services and practices in government, manufacturing, and banking. They will also enable new industries such as the Internet of Things, 3D printing and management of personal genome information. The innovations will be far reaching across our society, business and government – as far reaching as the Internet already has been.

One thought on “Quotable (#152)

  1. ” If we accept that the internet has caused a massive shift in how our society runs” sounds more like wishful thinking so far and unlikely to thrive on any large scale as the modern states/economies continue to implode, doesn’t seem to really wrestle with the degree to which e-commerce/culture is dependent on the enabling infrastructures of the dying systems/supply-chains/bureaucracies/etc it seeks to replace.
