I came across this talk via Fred Wilson’s blog.
It’s an excellent introductory talk by Muneeb Ali into blockchain and why blockchain matters. He uses very concise arguments, stays away from technology and – more importantly – cryptocurrencies. Even though there’s nothing new (for me) in this talk, I found it very inspiring.
In all fairness, I do not subscribe to the doom & gloom scenario and I would not call the current time “dark ages”, but I guess the lack of nuance is a current sign of the times.
