In this episode Trent Lapinski and Julian Moncada discuss emerging technologies such as blockchain, augmented reality, virtual reality, to artificial intelligence.
“I think that is really important that if you’re a hacker or developer that you balance the excitement you have around a new technology, around a new potential problem to solve, with the opportunity in the market and building a sustainable business.”
“If you build one without the other, if you have a great business plan, or you have some amazing idea but its not feasible, technically you’re not going to get very far.”
“I also think the inverse is true, you can build amazing tech, but if you haven’t thought through the market for it, or the value proposition it offers. Whether its a market we’re use to or whether it is a completely new market that doesn’t mimic anything today, if you had to make a call on that side of your business that can be very challenging as well.” —Julian Moncada

In this episode Trent Lapinski and Daniel Jeffries discuss cryptocurrency, blockchain, AI, future technology, and philosophy.
“We need to stop throwing the damn baby out with the bathwater, and assume that decentralized everything just works because it’s decentralized.”
“These things that we have now, they are still in their earliest phase. We barely understand them. They are going to evolve into something so mind boggling different from what we have today.”
“We have to look to each structure, and abstract out the things that work and create new mitigation systems that solve the problems of the existing ones, and when we make the next iteration we stand on the shoulders of giants.” — Daniel Jeffries
