Blockstack – A New Decentralized Internet1


Our portfolio company Blockstack is building a development platform for decentralized applications built on top of the blockchain. This video explains what they are doing and they just published a whitepaper outlining how their token works to support this application ecosystem. I think that most people would agree that a more secure Internet with identity that users control built-in from the start is a better approach. But how one bootstraps that kind of Internet has been a challenge. Tokens as incentive systems are likely a solution to the bootstrap problem and it is exciting to me to see how this works. http://avc.com/2017/10/blockstack-a-new-decentralized-internet/

Self taught and self talk


As we grow, the proportion of our learning that is self taught increases. There are a few reasons for this. First, completing formal education removes formal teachers and cohorts who’re going through what we go through. Second, work doesn’t lend itself naturally to coaching. So, it is on us to teach ourselves the skills we need. And, finally, we hopefully understand ourselves more and our able to absorb what we need from the world and tailor our curriculum to suit our needs. The good news is that, with a bit of practice, we can become pretty good teachers. But, the bad news is that it requires us to master the art of good self talk. We’ve all experienced this with our teachers. We’ve had great teachers who have so much wisdom to dispense that we hang on to every word they say. But, we’ve also had teachers who’ve played havoc with our self esteem. Well, we can have the same effect on ourselves except ours is multiplied by a million given the amount of time we spend with ourselves. There’s a lot that can be written about self talk. But, it boils down to one question – how do you respond to going through something disappointing?  There tend to be three responses – running away from the situation, accepting the facts and beating ourselves up or focusing on the learning and moving on. The most important first step is understanding which of these is your default response. Not too long ago, mine involved beating myself up. And, as you might imagine, the consequences of understanding it and, over time, fixing it, are immense. Share this: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Like this: Like Loading...
