Here’s a free tech tip: if someone says “blockchain” run as fast as you can

@meskin that's how I lost my leg. Someone said blockchain but I didn't run fast enough

@meskin if someone says blockchain that's a cue to tune them out

@meskin I hate it when companies try to use “blockchain” as a big marketing buzzword.

@meskin Blockchain is the platonic ideal of futile technical solutions to social problems.

Like yeah, the only problem with wealth and money and corruption is the physical medium of money, and not at all who has almost all the money and how they got and continue to get it all.

@meskin unless it's "here's how to utterly destroy the blockchain and anything like it" in which case you may want to listen
