What Problem Blockchains Actually Solve – The Solution Space

 

I see more and more private Blockchains or Blockchains that have a central trust. I don’t get it. If its private, use your Database, if your architecture needs a central control.. guess what its again your Database.

Blockchains do address a real problem: Keeping track of a record without access to a shared trusted party. However, it also casts serious doubts on Blockchain projects which require central trusted entities anyway. Private Blockchains are a contradiction in terms where you get all the complexity of Byzantine Consensus but none of its benefits as it is nevertheless centralized around a trusted party.

The open-plan office is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad idea


The absolute worst is when you have dozens of people from all different departments in the same room. Sales, marketing, support, administration, programmers, designers, what have you. These departments have very different needs for quiet or concentration or use of phones or open conversation. Mixing them together is peak bad open office design.
