George Gilder, author of Life After Google, argues that bitcoin and blockchain technology is revolutionizing the Internet.

In this video, sit down with Peter Robinson to discuss technology, cloud computing, big data, and the growing role of blockchain in innovating new technologies.

From the description:

Gilder argues that cloud computing, while it was the hot new technology ten years ago, has reached its limits as the physical limitations of big data storage centers maxes out. Improvements in parsing big data are incremental at this point, and it’s time for the next big technology to take its place.

Gilder points to blockchain as the technology of the future, with its ability to prevent corruption and manipulation of transaction data and the infinite uses it could have in third world countries. Gilder also discusses the history of technology, artificial intelligence, and the revolutionary bitcoin.

He argues that artificial intelligence can never replace human intelligence and creativity and that in principle, it is impossible for machines to take over.

In the second part of the CCF series of videos, we get a deeper look at and demonstrations of Microsoft’s open source Confidential Consortium Framework (CCF), which leverages Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) technology to provide full confidentiality, high transaction throughput, and governance capabilities for blockchain and multi-party application builders.

Alison McCauley gives a very thought provoking presentation at OSCON. Can blockchain really be this good for humanity?

In a world of increasingly complex challenges, the accelerated innovation of open source development is more urgent than ever. But nobody knows if it’s enough. Join Alison McCauley to learn how blockchain technology offers new tools that could help extend the ethos of open innovation into new areas.

In this video, learn about Microsoft’s open source Confidential Consortium Framework (CCF), which leverages Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) technology to provide full confidentiality, high transaction throughput, and governance capabilities for blockchain and multi-party application builders.

In this episode of BlockTalk, watch a discussion on Bitcoin and Lightning technology with Samson Mow, the CSO of BlockStream. They cover Bitcoin and Lightning technology as well dive into how companies like BlockStream are innovating on top of the Bitcoin protocol.

With BitCoin prices on the rise again, the hype machine has turned its focus back onto the technology. In a few days, expect the rally to retreat again and pundits to say something along the lines of “Blockchain has no practical use.” They are, of course, wrong and Siraj Raval explains (and demontrates!) why in this video.

Healthpass is a secure cloud store for all your health records! This serves patients by giving them one place to store and view all of their health data across all providers globally. It serves providers by ensuring that health records are stored securely via a blockchain and allows them to see a patients previous health history easily. To build this app I used Node.js, Firebase, Bitcoin’s Blockchain, Paypal, Stripe, Tesserect.js, BioBERT, and a health data visualization library called hFigures. The reason I built this app is to give you an idea on how a “bitcoin” startup would look practically, programmatically, and visually. I hope this inspires you to build something cool and even managed to fit a rap about SHA-256 into it. Enjoy!

In this TEDx talk, Jaspreet Bindra explores the promise of Blockchain and how it could radically transform identity, agriculture, money, energy, governance, and pretty much everything else, especially in the emerging countries.

This TEDx talk demystifies blockchain as never before, and explains how it can change the world around you… Jaspreet Bindra is a digital transformation and Blockchain expert. Until very recently, he was the Chief Digital Officer of $20bn Mahindra Group; and he continues as their Digital Adviser. He speaks, writes, teaches and consults on Digital Transformation and Blockchain, and is currently building a company around the same. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
