Blockchain and the Kingdom of Bling - Dirty Big Secrets Talk with Lisa Calkins

Lisa Calkins of Halfblast Studios joins our blockchain talk, but we get very human with it and talk about such things as fraud and the fact that it doesn't always just happen the way that you think it happens . Lisa explains credit card fraud and fraud in general. Also, why you will never forget your password again…   Why taking a small step toward responsibility of your password management is good for you and good for other people. Lisa gets very real and you will feel empowered. Here are some nuggets from the episode: NUGGET OF WISDOM FROM LISA: -And one of the things that was so exciting to me and, valuable to me about blockchain was that I didn't understand it at all. I had to learn it and the whole team had to learn it. And those early entire year, every day I would learn something. And then the next day I would realize whatever I learned wasn't really right or true.And then I would learn again and then I wouldn't understand it. And then some would ask me a question. I have no idea how to answer it, and I would have to learn it again. And what an exciting time that is, professionally and personally.

Blockchain - How Tech Can Empower and Change Human Beings - Blockchain, ART, MUSIC, and NFTs with Mostafa Purmehdi

Have you all noticed how change seems to be occurring more and more often and happening faster and bigger than ever before? The thing about change is that it is never comfortable; there is a period of growth and adjustment. What we may forget is that we can’t be complacent and say to ourselves “I’ve made it through this change and now I can relax “.  It's stressful when you see change coming. And when it comes, it's really stressful to adapt to the change. And then what gets us into trouble is when we think this change we’ve adapted to is it. The thing about it is it's ever evolving. So you can't say, okay, I can be comfortable now that we’ve made it into this new phase and think this will be it forever.  And it's not.  As soon as you get the hang of things, things change again. We have to be comfortable in the ongoing movement of life that is ever changing. We are on the precipice of a huge revolutionary shift that we’re about to experience with technology. Mostafa:  “We are going to experience huge shifts.  The good news is this is not the first time human race; our civilized society has been going through this. We've done this a few in the history, but every time seems, kind of new because, we are going through a new phenomenon.” Some questions we ask: The art world: What’s Fawn’s beef with that industry? How is art going to be transformed creatively and financially by blockchain and the NFT? How do we gain power over our intellectual properties? Are we just going to have an NFT for everything? How do we acquire NFTs? How does music come into this and musicians and making money from their art?  All these different facets of art and our different definitions of art;  how does that work with NFTs? Can a musician who's just starting out or even if they're not, like, let's say you're a Taylor Swift or something;  how does the NFT change music? How could NFTs benefit musicians and terms of use?
