Story is very interesting but the end is priceless.  Smiley

Quote
McAfee also says the growth of electronic currencies like Bitcoin is unstoppable, despite efforts by governments to curb their use.

“Things like Bitcoin are completely outside the control and the knowledge of anyone.”

To his mind, anyone who does not seriously consider electronic currency as a mode of currency exchange is “doing themselves a misservice,” given its encrypted and algorithmic protection from thievery.

“It will be everywhere and the world will have to readjust. World governments will have to readjust.”

I found the piece interesting, but I wonder how it came about.

"American software mogul John McAfee appears relaxed at a downtown restaurant as he digs into a bowl of poutine" - and a reporter happened to show up and they did an interview.

What is the purpose of this not-so-chance encounter?

Is this the McAfee that murdered someone?

If it is, this isn't exactly good publicity.
