Hmm, weird article where Richard Branson seems to want to make bank branches into Starbucks, led into with a bold statement on smashing conformity. Here's an opportunity to flood the comments with Bitcoin supporters and tell Branson what he should support to take a sledgehammer to banking:

I don't believe Sir Richard really wants to do anything revolutionary about the banking industry itself, just make the experience less antiseptic and more personable for the customer who will perceive that as a substantial change worthy of Virgin patronage.

Richard Branson is mad for not jumping off his own balloon.

Twenty years ago, he would have.  Now he's a little long in the tooth.  (You do realize the balloon jump was sponsored by Red Bull).   Grin
