Aspen is a very interesting pocket in the world. Very interesting. Beautiful scenery with mountains, greenery, hills, trees, and wonderful air. So the Nexus Conference (a combination libertarian and blockchain conference) was especially interesting.
And then, stuff like this happened while there. I'm literally, on this crypto-panel with Roger Ver (Bitcoin Jesus), Max Keiser (and Stacy Hebert), Charles Hoskinson (Ethereum founder), Shapeshift Jon and Rob of ZenCash. Crypto-milestone. I was interviewed for a series of documentaries on blockchain, including one that is for Netflix.
Here's the link to the YouTube of the above panel if you'd like to check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wB5lKhN4uoY
Photo above is me and David Wachsman (Owner of Wachsman PR, who represents StormX). Turns out, our StormX presentation won for best presentation at the ICO Summit in Zurich! How crazy is that. Carried around that GINORMOUS bottle of fancy champagne through the streets of Zurich. Had some nice guys help carry it for awhile too. Drank it finally between two large tables with a total of about 20 people at the end of the night over dinner. It was a lovely surprise and a major morale boost for me. Zurich is a beautiful city.
Also, got to meet some more really awesome blockchain/crypto people.
Vancouver today. Drove up to speak at the Vancouver Advanced Digital Innovation Summit. Local, PNW, support our community and on the topic of Blockchain. Seemed like a great idea. Photo above is when I spoke. I tried taking a less authoritative and much more approachable/friendly tone with the presentation in Vancouver. Not sure I loved the experience of delivering it. People did seem very receptive to it.
Drive back same day, fly out tomorrow to Zurich. Planning to try on a more dry tone with the presentation in Zurich to see how that goes. I don't get to put my Lentil to bed tonight, so I'm really hoping timing works out and I can at least get him ready for school in the morning and then I fly out for the week. My heart hurts at the thought of leaving my Lentil for so many days.
Lentil's first day of baby school is today. I've been feeling so anxious. Remember, ICO? I have been fretting about potentially being gone for the first 2 weeks of September, and missing his first days of baby school. Thankfully, Simon and I have decided to split up Europe and Asia trips. He's doing most of Asia. I'm doing the bulk of Europe.
Thank you dear Lord for allowing me to be home for his first days of baby school. He's an amazing boy - and my heart just swoons looking at this photo of him. Our Lentil bean is growing up so fast. <3 <3 <3
