Based on many recent conversations, common wisdom is that blockchain could contribute to approaches to enhancing and underpinning cyber security and also data custody, ownership and monetization.
These are all hot topics that are impacting individuals and corporations and which are likely to increase in importance in 2020. Hence the focus of this meetup on these topics as we look ahead to the coming year.
Come and listen to short presentations from:
* Nathan Stolzer, Lonestar Data Technologies
* Gordon Mattey, Phorm
* Bryan Menell, Verimos
There will also be a short presentation from SXSW on what is hot about their 2020 activities. Also we will let people know about SXSW badge discounts available via the Collective.
And of course there is always time for networking and opportunities for shoutouts.
Doors at 6.30pm for networking. The program will begin promptly at 7pm. Some of us may adjourn to the Omni bar following the meetup.
