The comparison with startup incubator Blueseed is interesting!

I have been reading this book (and I am half way through at this point):
While it's certainly a good read, I have been surprised to see that it talks about Google autonomous cars, IBM's Watson and many other technological innovations familiar to readers of WIRED etc., but fails to mention digital currencies at all. Weird for a 2014 book on sweeping technological transformations, isn't it?

Hi guys,

I am also new to Bitcointalk - but not new to thinking about (and trading) Bitcoin. I am philosopher by training and I have to say I am very intrigued by digital currencies and their potential to revolutionize the way we think about money, the way we spend money and the way we transfer money. Maybe money need not be backed by real value (commodities, etc.) or someone's institutional promise to protect its status as a legal tender. Maybe (sound) mathematics and certain agreements on secure trading are sufficient!

Also, I am not necessarily a libertartian, although I have libertarian tendencies.
