I am interested in bitcoin from many angles and levels. I believe it is unique in its ability to directly affect financial and economic activity, which directly affects so much else in our world. In that sense I believe bitcoin's most important impact will be on the central banking and to a lesser extent the banking and financial services industry. To the extent that these industries have a direct effect on things like economics, politics, financial disparity, war, violence, consumerism, the media, advertising, popular culture etc. then bitcoin will have an effect in those areas as well.
I wish to further improve my business development skills and experience, specifically as it pertains to technology companies and bitcoin. As well I aim to improve my leadership skills in business and activism, along with developing a business centred around distributed and disruptive systems.
I have experience in building and running businesses in a variety of industries. This includes a small design firm, a web development company, and a construction services company I have also been studying the variety of economic, technological, philosophical, and political environments which bitcoin has the possibility of affecting greatly for many years. I believe that with a focused vision and hard work that a small number of individuals can play a role in the success of this technology. The success of this technology and early adoption of it, provides a unique opportunity to those who have the foresight to engage in its development. I am committed to doing my best to do so for myself, and to help others do the same.
An individual dedicated to the success and improvement of our community and society as a whole, and the success of bitcoin (or other decentralized solution) as a means for attaining such improvements in both quality of life and conciousness.
Bitcoin Vancouver continues to go strong!
