  1. I would like to hear a discussion of the issues raised in Bruce Schneier’s blog on Mar 17, 2021 under the title “Illegal content and the blockchain”. If what he says is true, or if even part of what he points out is true, then it seems to call into question the optimistic forecasts of a “network state” serving the interests of local communities using blockchain software. After all the sound and fury (and expense) of the digital age we will end up with separate communities living according to local conditions, and local censorship, with little international contact, as in the old days. This might be for the good. See also Aris Roussinos’ article on from March 22, 2021 called “Anarchy is coming”.
    Many thanks

    1. The “Illegal Content and the Blockchain” article is basically a restatement of The Four Horseman of the Infopocalypse, with the word “blockchain” substituted for word “internet”.

      The other one I haven’t had a chance to read through yet although a quick scan reminded me of Robert Kaplan’s “The Coming Anarchy”, I don’t know if that was an intentional riff or my mind just reading similarities into it (it’s been a long time since I read Kaplan’s book).

  2. I enjoy your musings (and “amusings”!) and have been intrigued with CLIME ever since reading about it in Money & Work Unchained. I once again ask if you might consider discussing Hedera Hashgraph first as an answer to CLIME administration. Also, I think Hedera’s structure may address the concerns you voiced about governance in this Episode #40. Furthermore, because it doesn’t require the same process to reach consensus as Bitcoin does, nor require energy-intensive mining operations, it seems a distinct improvement over the blockchain. If I misunderstand all of this, PLEASE disabuse me as I am jumping out of my skin believing this is an answer to many of the problems expressed on Axis of Easy.
