Exactly right. I had a theory in the 80’s that C had become popular because it was so hard that you saw all sorts of books about it in the store and articles in the magazines and entire magazines devoted to it, but you didn’t see that for COBOL, so it didn’t have the same perceived usage. The very fact that C was difficult is what gave rise to its popularity.
No, the observation is that there isn’t a barrier to entry other than their own desire. You don’t feel it is pandering in any way to do “women in blockchain” like they can’t do it on their own? The women I’ve talked to about it do. That’s great about the ladies you mentioned, it doesn’t negate my point. If women want to do it, they can do it, they don’t need something special to do it.
Not sexist, it is my observation. I get out a lot, but my experience is that I have yet to meet a woman doing something on the blockchain at a deep technical level and it’s because they don’t want to. I noted that I hadn’t met a lot of men either, almost all of them are talking ABOUT blockchain, but they barely actually know anything about how to do…

I looked into them pretty thoroughly and I clearly indicate all their associated companies in the story, and these are good things, it means they have enough supply chain to pull this off. I did advise them to hold off on partnership announcements, even if they have handshake agreements, until the system is closer to fully available. I don’t see them as a scam.
So they say, we will see what happens. I saw an interesting presentation from a major mining company in the US, he was asked about PoS for Ethereum and he said it would never happen because the miners wouldn’t approve the code, so it would only happen as a new platform or fork of some sort. I find Chia far more exciting as a currency and Dragonchain far more exciting as an enabling platform right now.
The downside with Resilio is that they don’t necessarily do a good job with explaining their amazing products. As I understand it, it’s just a 5 pack license, but what I’m not sure about, since you need to have at least 2 computers to be syncing between is how that works exactly. So like, I have the personal license and someone I send files to are…
