@thegibson sounds about right on schedule; "Moxie gets bored with stuff and moves on suddenly" is within expected parameters

@calcifer @thegibson Multiple other tech ceos have all done the same thing in the last couple months, which is weird.

@vortex_egg @thegibson fair, but tbh all of tech is undergoing massive churn at the moment. Which is weird, sure, but I don't see any additional signal in the fact that CxOs are part of the churn.

@vortex_egg @calcifer @thegibson And I don't think Moxie is all that much against cryptocurrency.

But who knows. I don't follow him that closely.

@GeoffWozniak @thegibson @vortex_egg with Moxie? I'd say a little of column A, a little of column B. I'd be surprised if he was all "cryptocoins and blockchains will solve everything" like the true believers.

But my read is that he genuinely sees cryptocurrency as having real value and is going after it because he believes he can make it better.

@ged @vortex_egg @thegibson @GeoffWozniak yes. A blockchain is a distributed public ledger with strong non-repudiation properties. It has a few legitimate uses but is overused due to buzzword status. PoW/PoS are designed to be approaches to creating an artificial scarcity

Any cryptocurrency needs to have some kind of scarcity (PoW/etc.) and some kind of distributed proof of ownership (blockchain/Merkle tree/etc). So far, no one has come up with a solution to that pair of problems that doesn't cause a whole bunch of other problems, unfortunately
