Distributed Conversations takes on the future with a perspective that the results of technology revolutions are more significant than we are aware of and that progress must accelerate as these factors combine and eliminate friction in everything we do. The only thing between us an abundant future is the friction of existing systems and our ability to embrace change. Guests of the podcast include innovators in blockchain, machine learning, 5g connections along with tech startups in fintech, business processes, healthcare and beyond.
The Future of AgriTech - David Rockwood
Farming is not a guy with a hoe and some seed. Agriculture and Agritech is a big part of our economy.
Much less is done by hand, and there we're seeing emerging technologies, like AI, satellites, IoT, blockchain for supply chain management, and better yields from fields in every region of the planet.
My friend and AgriTech specialist David Rockwood joined me for a live chat via Zoom. This episode is an edited version of that event, chock full of interesting information on where the money and tech are flowing into agriculture and a few great stories along the way.

Tokenize Every Business Transaction? Telos Says We Can
Creating tokens has become as easy as setting up a website, blog or TikTok account. But what good is this doing business?
We know about tokens for rewards programs or to keep track of things and we know that we won't need programmers creating currencies for everything. Fintech is going to be huge, but just a tiny part of the things we count in business.
Enter Telos and an easy way to create smart contracts through their platform. Telos is a blockchain tuned to handle transactions at super fast speed and has the ability to scale beyond any assessment of transactions happening today.
Douglass Horn and I will talk about the future and how platforms such as TELOS will accelerated the growth of blockchain in the next few years.
Full discloser, I own a small amount of TLOS and advise companies building on the platform. It's not the only way to add blockchain but the smart contracts make it a current favorite.

Enabling Transactions When Institutions Don't Want Free Trade With Rob McNealy
Banks and mainstream payment institutions aren’t exactly very friendly to the notion of free trade when it comes to guns and other industries they consider to be red flag. Enter the TUSC Network, a blockchain payment processing solution that enables crypto payments for gun businesses and other retailers. TUSC stands for The Universal Settlement Coin, a decentralized, non-ICO cryptocurrency that was launched in 2018. Crypto entrepreneur and personal liberty activist Rob McNealy joins Warren Whitlock on the podcast to share the details of this crypto payment solution and the unique benefits that it offers to gun retailers. They also talk about how crypto entrepreneurs can get mass adoption of crypto products – a long overdue prospect that has the potential to solve pesky problems like what TUSC is doing for the gun industry.
Now Anyone Can Have Their Own Crypto Token -Aspire Crypto
First there was Bitcoin and it's blockchain.
Then there were alt-coins and many ideas to replace currency.
What we have now is a lot of blockchain that is not necessarily built for finance. And tools to make creating new tokens as simple as filling in forms at a web site.
Meet Jim and Michael from Aspire. On this episode of Distributed Conversations, we talk about the world of opportunities that are possible with tokens for anything you want to keep track of.
A New Taxonomy For The Future With Tomo Albanese
Language as we know it is messy and divisive. To transform it into a truly unifying factor, we need to create a new taxonomy that gets everyone on the same page. In this conversation with Warren Whitlock, copy director, writer and philosopher, Tomo Albanese argues that emerging technologies like machine learning, artificial intelligence and nanotechnology have the potential to help bring us closer to that reality. How exactly is this going to occur? Does this mean we are relinquishing our expression to machines? What does it mean for the future of contracts and agreements? Listen as Warren and Tomo engage in a deeply philosophical discussion about these questions and learn just how emerging technologies may hold the secrets to world peace.
