The View from Korea: Blockchain, Tokenization, and the IoT
August 10, 2018
David Fragale

Korea Blockchain Week, held last month in Seoul, was inspiring. Of course just being back in South Korea was inspiring. This whole nation seems focused on the future, as does much of the rest of Asia. What does it say when lists of the world’s most beautiful airports invariably include Seoul’s Incheon, as well as airports of Singapore, Hong Kong, and China?

5 Questions on Blockchain with Vaughan Emery of Atonomi
April 2, 2018
Ben Canner

We’ve written before about blockchain, the new darling of the cybersecurity world. For the uninitiated, it functions as a decentralized database operating in a large-scale, peer-to-peer fashion that auto-encrypts all of the information in its files as they are updated. At time of writing, no hacker has managed to crack it; thus cybersecurity companies are intensely researching the technology for how it can bolster their platforms.

Sweet Spots for that Ledger in the Sky
March 30, 2018
Vaughan Emery

The world is rightfully excited about the potential of blockchain — the development of which some have compared to the advent of the internet. This decentralized, immutable record will soon allow us to safely conduct a variety of different transactions from virtually anywhere in the world — like a digital ledger in the sky.

Blockchain will be key to security for 'smart cities' of the future
March 21, 2018
Vaughan Emery

The future is fast approaching in the form of smart cities. But at the same time, a global horde of hackers are close behind, ready to exploit the weakest links. Smart cities can reduce resource consumption, using IoT devices to optimize the use of electricity and water; reduce traffic congestion and air pollution through smart coordination of traffic lights, parking availability, and public transportation...

Building Upon a Strong Foundation
March 15, 2018
Vaughan Emery

Sir Isaac Newton, the British genius who first proposed the laws of motion in the 1687 release of his three-volume work Principia, acknowledged the work of his predecessors when he wrote: “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

Extensible by Design
January 31, 2018
Vaughan Emery

The great physicist Albert Einstein once said, “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” This makes me think that Einstein would have been a big proponent of extensibility had he ever written code – as opposed to his awesome decoding of the universe.

Internet Transactions of Things: When Counting in Trillions

Why Most View a Blockchain Future Through the Rear View Mirror
January 4, 2018
David Fragale

Blind spots must be considered with blockchain. When a new technology like blockchain comes around, it’s easy to overlook the impact it can have far beyond its intended use. Much of this is the result of our tendency to perceive the future too much through the lens of the past, a hallmark of skeuomorphic design.

I Have One Word for You: Blockchain
December 21, 2017
Vaughan Emery

T’is the season for watching classic movies. And one classic that has been coming to mind is “The Graduate” – the 1967 Oscar winning flick that gave birth to Dustin Hoffman’s career, produced the hit Simon & Garfunkel song “Mrs. Robinson” and launched an ironic meme before there were memes.

Vaughan Emery

There’s no joy in writing this blog. I’ve spent the night searching for the latest news about the Triton malware that’s been discovered in an – at this point unnamed – industrial plant believed to be located in the Middle East, perhaps Saudi Arabia, according to Reuters.

Vaughan Emery

Automation is flowing into our lives so persistently and quietly that we hardly notice. Gone are the folded maps in the glove compartment.
