Biography

An educator and connector at heart, I was born to missionary parents and spend my first 4 years in the jungles of Peru...and yes, I have eaten bugs - on purpose...great source of protein, incidentally.   

From there (are you still stuck on the bug part? Come on back and join me!), my path has taken me from Georgia, to Canada, Alaska, Massachusetts, Ohio and back to Georgia with side trips around the world including visits to places like Istanbul, Turkey, and Davos, Switzerland. 

My MEd. level certifications cover regular education, special education and gifted education K-12 and I've enjoyed teaching at both the 0-3 and college levels and everywhere in-between!

I love people and am a firm believer that we are ALL connected. Blockchain has just become the technological vehicle to put that reality into a practical application that can be more obviously seen and understood. 

Since Bitcoin entered my portfolio as an uncorrelated diversification in 2012, I have been watching the trends and the application of the blockchain technology. What an amazing journey encompassing many highs and lows...

I've invested in over 30 blockchain/cryptocurrency projects personally and feel that I'm only scratching the surface of opportunity and growth.   

My journey with the Chamber from Founding Member, to CIO, to President and then to CEO has been a fascinating time of personal growth as well as consolidation and growth for the entire ecosystem.  We all still have much to learn together. Thanks for connecting on this journey!

Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG, and Pricewaterhouse Coopers are ALL heavily invested in the integration of blockchain into enterprise level organizations.  Regulatory uncertainty has been an issue for them all and most of their focus has been on POC's and not large scale implementations. 

However, Deloitte's recent global blockchain survey highlighted "Blockchain Gets Down to Business"!  The hope here is that their POC's will start to convert into widespread implementation of blockchain solutions that can show ROI.

EY has boldly stated that "Blockchain will do for networks of enterprises and business ecosystems what enterprise resource planning (ERP) did for the single company." (I did get a chuckle that ey.com also opined, "blockchain will.... increase protection against cybersecurity.") EY seems to be angling toward serving connective blockchain networks..

KPMG is leaning heavily on its relationship with Microsoft and focusing on blockchain services on the cloud.  It proves out that this is a fast-paced time even for multi billion dollar companies when they can't finish their sentences correctly...“Additionally, KPMG member firms offer collaborative services with Microsoft, combining Microsoft's blockchain and cloud technologies with our extensive offerings and expertise, know much.“  https://home.kpmg/xx/en/home/insights/2017/02/digital-ledger-services-at-kpmg-fs.html 

PWC is still focused on whether blockchains are trustworthy and the reality that most executives are still struggling to understand implementation and justify cost... 

ALL 4 seem to still be in education and executive hand-holding mode and are really starting to highlight the power of network effect. 

Whose network will dominate globally?  That remains to be seen...

This is just a super rudimentary analysis and would benefit from multiple perspectives and reviews....

Looking forward to others adding to this and to the organizations mentioned fixing their websites.. ;)  It doesn't matter if you are an enterprise organization, one of the big four, the Fortune 500 or a bootstrapping startup, WE ARE ALL A WORK IN PROGRESS. ;)

By "How does this work?" with no noun to connect "this" to for context, I'm going to make the leap of logic that you are referring to the Q and A.... You have anonymously asked the question so I have no way to connect with you directly and answer any other interpretations of your question unless you respond to my reply. I'm going to take a stab at a quick tutorial for you:

You can add cool flyers of great events... Or ask someone to click Here

...

The Q &A can be answered by any experienced contributor on the site and will not show up in the feed until it has been approved and received one answer.  Questions are searchable by key words and will remain available for future reference and comment over time.  If you would like more clarification, you can respond to this answer and the conversation can be continued...  

As you will be reminded, please proofread your response before you submit. You cannot edit your response after it has been submitted. You can save drafts of your answers to return to work on them. 

Feel free to ask questions that get the community thinking or that provide a value-add by educating about something that others might not yet be aware of...

You can answer your own questions if you are an experienced contributor, but your questions should be soliciting the community's feedback as well.

I hope this gave you additional perspective on how this works.

Facebook's Libra is seen as a threat to the control that has been centralized in governments to this point.  Relinquishing that control - even to a consortia of wealthy companies rather than just Facebook - is not something that is going to happen without a fight.  As to how dirty that fight will get and the implications for already existing cryptos and the ultimate roll out (or shelving) of Libra - that is left to be seen...

Definitely still in the early days!  When I first embarked on this journey in 2012, we were in a bit of a blocky dingy, but I've decided that the row over choppy seas has been worthwhile... It feels like we are just pulling up to the ocean liner that is anchored in the harbor.  People on-boarding now definitely haven't missed the boat!  Now is a great time to engage in adoption of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  The journey to mass adoption is just beginning...
