    Tech Intersect #16: Isaiah "Bitcoin Zay" Jackson-Bitcoin and Black America in the Age of COVID-19

    Isaiah Jackson, also known as Bitcoin Zay, is the author of “Bitcoin and Black America”, a book that explores the synergy between Bitcoin, blockchain technology and economic empowerment in black and brown communities, in particular. Isaiah is also Community Manager for Metronome and co-host of the popular YouTube show, “The Gentlemen of Crypto”, which has over 500 episodes and 20+ hours of crypto tutorials. His other work in the blockchain space includes being a member of the Digital Currency Council, a Certified Bitcoin Professional (C4 Consortium) and the owner of a Bitcoin ATM.
    I’m so grateful that Isaiah took the time out of his very busy schedule to chat with me during this unprecedented time as much of our nation and the world is under some form of a stay-at-home or quarantine order due to the novel coronavirus pandemic known as COVID19.

    Tech Intersect #15: Drew Hinkes: Cryptocurrency Lawyers Talk Regulation and Innovation

    Tech Intersect #15: Drew Hinkes: Cryptocurrency Lawyers Talk Regulation and Innovation

    In this episode, I welcome Andrew Hinkes, an attorney with Miami-based law firm Carlton Fields working in the firm's National Blockchain and Digital Currency practice. He is also a co-founder and the General Counsel of Athena Blockchain, a professional services firm focused on tokenized investments.
    We discuss what Bitcoin and blockchain are, about other cryptocurrencies including stablecoins and government issued digital fiat, and regulations and regulators in the United States and around the world, given that public, permissionless blockchains--the rails that support the issuance of many cryptographically-secured tokens of value--are borderless. We also talk about what a "crypto lawyer" is and does.
    Previously nominated as one of Coindesk’s Most Influential People in Blockchain in 2017, Drew is frequently quoted and cited in articles related digital assets and blockchain technology, and regularly speaks at legal, industry, and academic conferences. Drew’s areas of expertise focus on legal and business issues related to public network cryptocurrency systems, decentralized system governance, and legal and ethical issues related to cryptocurrency systems. Time to LISTEN, LEARN and LEVERAGE. So let’s get started.

    Tech Intersect #14: Stephanie Humphrey: Best Practices for Managing Your Digital Brand

    In this episode, I welcome Technology & Lifestyle Expert Stephanie 'Tech Life Steph' Humphrey to the show. She is a former engineer-turned-media personality, the technology contributor for ABC News, and you may have seen her regular segments on the nationally-syndicated daytime show 'Strahan, Sara and Keke' and founder of Til Death Do You Tweet, an educational series she delivers to students, parents, schools and businesses. Stephanie has a long and impressive history in technology and media, but she is most passionate about helping people, especially children, to become better digital citizens. We cover exactly what that means and how to utilize technology responsibly and safely.
     
    This episode is particularly relevant now that so many of us have transitioned to "work-from-home" status due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. So many people are now forced to leverage the Internet to work, play and connect. Stephanie helps us do so responsibility and safely.Summary:

    Tech Intersect #13: Kailei Carr-The Future of Inclusive C-Suite Leadership in Tech

    Tech Intersect #13: Kailei Carr-The Future of Inclusive C-Suite Leadership in Tech

    In this episode of Tech Intersect™, I have a rich and engaging conversation with Kailei Carr. She’s the CEO of The Asbury Group, LLC, and she advises executive and executive-bound women on their executive image, presence and brand. Her podcast, Beyond the Business Suit, provides insider “tips of the trade” for successful women in business and beyond. She is also the Director of the Emerge Academy, a one-year program specifically designed for women of color in technology.
    The future of work includes the future of leadership in a Web 3.0 world. And the executive path to the C-Suite is—like every area of business—being disrupted by technology, both in terms of increased opportunities for diverse voices and representation at the C-Suite table. You must be in a constant state of evolution to ensure preparation will meet opportunity in the new economy. Kailei reminds us about the importance of developing leadership skills—especially the importance of using one’s existing expertise to participate in the new economy that is data, innovation and technology driven. And she also reminds us that self-care, especially for women and people of color, is not a luxury; self-care is essential. And that’s why her Beyond the Business Suit Retreat is so popular and well-received and restorative.
    We recorded this conversation before the COVID-19 pandemic gripped the entire world. She decided, out of an abundance of caution, to reschedule the retreat. She confirmed that the TECH2020 discount for $200 off of registration will still apply when the new dates are confirmed here. 
    Time to LISTEN, LEARN and LEVERAGE™.

    Tech Intersect #12: Dawn Dickson-A Message to Founders: Know Your Purpose, Your People, and Your Power

    Tech Intersect #12: Dawn Dickson-A Message to Founders: Know Your Purpose, Your People, and Your Power

    She is a "light worker", tech mogul, and founder/CEO of PopCom, an automated retail company that uses artificial intelligence, blockchain and other Web 3.0 technologies to help retailers collect and leverage valuable customer insights through smart vending technology. Her ventures include Flat Out of Heels, Lifestyle Cafe, and PopCom, a software as a service company, after identifying a need to make vending machines more intelligent.Dawn reminds us in this episode that only solutions scale.  And also that who you build with is often more important than the solution. Without the right people by your side, many a great solution will die on the vine. And finally, she reminds us to have a “me first” mentality and know your power. This “me first power” isn’t selfish but self FULL. Because empty cups don’t overflow. And empty vessels certainly can’t fill others.
    This is a really info-rich and high energy conversation that focuses on three areas to empower founders: knowing your purpose, your people, and your POWER. So buckle up! It’s gonna be an amazing ride. Time to listen, learn, and leverage.

    Tech Intersect #11: Anne T. Griffin-The Business Value of Diverse Voices in Web 3.0 Product Management

    Tech Intersect #11: Anne T. Griffin-The Business Value of Diverse Voices in Web 3.0 Product Management

    In this episode, I welcome Anne T. Griffin, a human and product manager, in that order (as she says), who studied engineering at the University of Michigan. She is passionate about the human aspects of technology and building machine learning and AI products rooted in the realities of the human experience. She is also an Emerging Tech Correspondent for Tech2025, a platform and community for learning about, and discussing emerging technologies such as AI. Tech2025, incidentally, company founded by another Tech Intersect Guest, Charlie Oliver—so listen to ep 4 to hear my conversation with Charlie about the future of technology.
     
    Anne’s current focus is on exploring what "fairness" means at a product level and how teams can integrate empathy and awareness of the impact of bias into the creative and development process. She has worked with major companies such as Microsoft, Mercedes-Benz, American Express, Comcast, and Colgate-Palmolive. So her background and expertise make her uniquely qualified for the work she does today. Anne shares her origin story, thoughts on some of the most promising technologies in the Web 3.0 build, the most pressing challenges and concerns about bias in the build of Web 3.0. We talk also talk solutions and the imperative for inclusion to ensure there are diverse people with diverse perspectives and talents at the laptop as we usher in the fourth industrial revolution.
