In Today’s episode I try and play a little catch up. So much has happened. So many other things I would like to talk about since the last podcast. I feel since this was such big news in the crypto world and because my last podcast was about my aspirations for this project, I felt I must address this. The now infamous DAO known as “the DAO” has been brought down. Ethereum still lives on but not without consequence. Join me as I discuss how it all went down. Some crazy black hat on white hat hacker and vice versa in this episode!

Thank You Meat Puppets!!!

A special thank you to the Meat Puppets for giving us permission to use their music on this podcast! I have been a big fan of the Pups for years. Their music is very diverse. Beginnings of early punk all the way to honky-tonk country and much more in between. I have a lot of profound respect for these guys so it was important for me to get permission to use their music. From now on you will notice the intro and outro music has changed to various Meat Puppets music.

I am sorry for the lack of podcasts the last month or so. I have been very very busy managing my projects, work, and home life with small children. I am committed to getting more efficient and the podcasts will get more regular so if you are waiting more are coming soon!

I will leave you today with a country-esk song by the Meat Puppets from one of my favorite albums called “II”. The song is called “Lost”. Enjoy!

This is going to be the 1st Bitcoin podcast of a series I will be doing explaining Bitcoin. Because of the technical nature of this subject, I decided to do several podcasts that will grow in their complexity as I try and do my best to outline all of the aspects of Bitcoin and the platform that powers it. I will be doing an overview/recap of this podcast in the next podcast to sort of solidify what I was trying to say in this podcast. Here are some links that I said I would provide in this show.

 

—– LINKS FROM THE SHOW——

As I explained, Bitcoin has no CEO or stock and is not a corporation or company. Also Newsweek did not unmask the creator of Bitcoin. The media seems to get this wrong time and time again. I’m not sure if its a coordinated misinformation campaign or if its just plain ignorance. In any case shame on these media outlets for putting out erroneous information… Continue reading

In this podcast I talk about using the popular micro controller platform Arduino in Hobbies that might become more than just hobbies. This relates to the technology section of this podcast, so today is sort of a tech show. I talk about how I am building a temperature monitoring system as well as a gun safe monitoring system all from scratch with stuff I just found on the internet. Keep in mind I have no computer programming or electrical hardware background. I am 100% amateur and novice. That is the power of Arduino!!! You can start anywhere, at any knowledge level and gain quite an amazing proficiency with programming and electronics. You can find out more about these little devices at arduino.cc
