  • Nashville's Tech and Startup scenes look very different than they did 10 years ago at the first Barcamp Nashville. What will they look like 10 years from now at Barcamp XX? We interview the leaders of two organizations central to answering that question: Brian Moyer, the new CEO of the Nashville Technology Council (NTC), and Michael Brody-Waite, the new CEO of the Nashville Entrepreneur Center (EC).

    As far as I know, this will be the first time that Brian and Michael will have the chance to share a platform and present their visions for Nashville's future and how their organizations will help to shape that future. I'll have questions to ask both Michael and Brian and will also solicit questions from the community in advance of the session.

  • Facebook is worth around $350 billion. Twitter: $10 billion. Reddit: $500 million.

    How much of that value did you create? How much were you rewarded for the content you created?

    Steemit is a decentralized, blockchain-based social media platform which pays content authors and curators in real tokens of value. Launched in May of 2016, it has the potential to radically disrupt not only the dominant centralized social media platforms today but also the very concept of money itself.
