    S03EP7 : Web3 - The Promised Neverland With Glen Henry

    S03EP7 : Web3 - The Promised Neverland With Glen Henry

    Glen Henry is the Founder and Project Director of Sprite Wrench Studios. A micro games development studio based in Kingston, Jamaica.

    As  the "loudest Member" of the Jamaica Game Developer Society (JGDS), he uses his experience to nurture and encourage the growth of the region's Game Development sector.

    In this episode Glen shares why he is hesitant about Blockchain and some of the misgivings he has specifically as a gaming insider.

    It's not that he isn't excited about new technology, and he's not dismissing web 3 outright, but he's just not impressed with the current state of the space and believes there already exists better, more sustainable ways for gamers and creatives to earn.

    S03EP3: The Inevitability of Blockchain, Skepticism & Politics with Nicholas Kee

    Nicholas is a tech protege who has been innovating in tech locally and on an international level since his early teens.

    With his latest projects Nicholas has turned his attention to blockchain technology lending that innovative spirit towards creating workable solutions that marries traditional processes with high tech systems to improve on these processes.

    In this conversation Nicholas talks about some of these projects as well as share his thoughts on the inevitability of blockchain and applications like crypto and also why he thinks politicking is the reason behind the obvious apprehension to adopt this technology.

    Because of his experiences working locally and in many of these international spaces he has a rather  interesting perspective which as far as we're concerned qualifies more than most to opine.

    S03EP2 : A Thousand Better Ideas - Blockchain Use Cases with Donald Porter

    S03EP2 : A Thousand Better Ideas - Blockchain Use Cases with Donald Porter

    Donald Porter, is a World class Blockchain developer, Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) expert and Crypto enthusiast.  

    I call him Mr. Blockchain because of the seemingly endless reservoir of knowledge he has of this technology as well as all the interesting ideas he has on how this technology can be applied.

    I invited Donald to share some of those ideas, and in particular ways in which Blockchain technology can be used to address localized and perennial problems within our governance systems.

    He is a passionate advocate with a thousand ideas and we would do well to ensure that type of knowledge,  ambition and willingness is put to good use locally.
