Thanks to CIO Online for inviting CEO, Jonathan Kempe to speak about a rather polarising topic! We covered off various themes that were of interest to enthusiasts, engineers, decision-makers and executives. There were lively questions during the Q&A.
Title: The deceptive allure of blockchains
1. Plankton to Primate: How the historical evolution of thought, technology, society, and corporations created the starting conditions for blockchain ‘solutions’
2. Promising to Panacea: How knowledge gaps, the rebalancing of intergenerational wisdom and the speed of technological advancement have allowed ideas behind blockchains to thrive
3. Present-day Practicalities: How you can use alternate, existing, low-cost, low-complexity, and highly effective technology solutions to enhance business operations and increase profitability
Jonathan's desire was to address the audience as informed and skilful individuals, who have navigated through a raft of scenarios and problems over their long business careers, and empower them (especially in that last section) to use their existing faculties – wisdom, discernment, and a detailed understanding of their business’s needs – to make better choices about what to investigate, and what to discard. Jonathan didn't push any one solution but instead painted a picture of what is available in the open marketplace, and what tools (resources and people) are around to help decision makers make better choices.
