The Blockchain is Just an Application

The blockchain is just an application. Everyone is going nuts over blockchain now that they see it can be used for commerce, despite its awkwardness and efficiency concerns. In the hysteria, the whole premise of the blockchain has taken on a bigger concept than it actually is. But let’s keep in mind that a blockchain is basically an application. It’s an application that runs on one or more computers (nodes) that comprise a network. Continue reading

The Biggest Threat

I guess now that I have spent the past week preparing for the Startup Battlefield 2021 Application (seriously, it took a lot!), I am more in the writing mood and can start putting together some additional thoughts around what I have been working on and the field I am entering here with starbeam.one. Recently I have been assessing risks. Of course, the biggest risk with any company is that it could fail. Continue reading

The Opportunity as I See It

To my mind, the “Creator Economy” (buzzwords, ugh) is much like the “Real Estate Economy” (😛) and can be divided into two segments: Digital leasing Digital ownership Digital leasing should be familiar to anyone who has owned a computer since forever. It’s really the only way we have interfaced with digital “assets” ever since we have been able to copy them into a directory and subsequently paste them infinitely across as many devices we own and/or illicit networks of which we may (or may not 😇) be a member.

May 2021 Status Update

Goodness, what a run. I have basically been on a development tear since the last check-in, clocking about 10-12 hours a day. I guess that’s my typical schedule, but all of it has been totally dedicated to disciplined development, which is the ideal. So upon last check-in I believe I was spilling about having some videos done by now, which WAS ALL A LIE. 😅 Shows you for taking the time to believe me. Continue reading

Aw jyea… I am finding myself with the time to write a status update, so that must mean I am in another creative jam. 😆 Well it’s not that bad, but I thought I would take a few seconds to chime in here. Things are going pretty well. I am down to one last feature item, which should take about two weeks (🤞). Then after that, it’s off to the races with completing deferred tasks. Continue reading

Confronting Competition

It’s been a tough week here. What compounds it is that I was really on a roll there, ahead of schedule and cooking with momentum. That all seems like ancient history right now, so I guess I am spending some of my time here “getting my house in order.” First, Twitter is such a distraction. A double-edged sword, really. I use it to find out the latest news, but then I find out about all the sites out there that could be considered “my competition. Continue reading

February 2021 Status Update

Well, another checkin so it must mean I am stuck somewhere again. 😁 Indeed, another bout of “The Analysis” has struck, so I am left staring at the ceiling for hours at a time, awaiting the inspiration to save me. There’s also Twitter, which I find myself switching to uncontrollably to find the latest news – whatever it may be. I am getting close, however. This is the last task involving “new” analysis, and this is one of three tasks (or stories) remaining. Continue reading
