“The irony is that in trying to solve the challenge of existing silos, we created new silos. The challenge now is to build interoperability across those silos.” @JoelKatz on ‘The Race Towards Interoperability” #Consensus2018 #BlockchainWeekNYC pic.twitter.com/KjuShvdyAL

By all credible reports, #Consensus2018 is an absolute disaster. This is what happens when media is co-opted by the money. It was clear in the #sponsored lead-up, clearer in the @coindesk choices on stage today. Pay to Play from top to bottom. This "show" is over. Let's get real.
