Voting is dumb for the same reasons growing tomatoes is dumb. (Unless you're into that kind of thing) Blockchain fever hits disney. R3 goes Herr Durr on message passing, Ripple says blockchains are for public applications , Matt Levine says blockchains are a sociological improvement, Ripple says blockchain may not actually save money. Chi-X says blockchains are bullshit. And Don Tapscott says "What's a blockchain?" Erik Voorhees runs a boiler room, and hedgy gets into the (surprise surprise) consulting business! Hyperledger is going to be HUGE! But no one knows what it is other than a buzzword worth paying to be a part of. Intel introduces Proof of Elapsed Time. Eris .. to the potato? Droplister wears a suit. GREAT tip-off on new bitcoin users (Hint: bookies!)Gambling is hot right now, Overstock... not so much. Oh, and IBM wants to bring artificial intelligence to blockchain.
