Role: Programmer & Data Scientist

Since the early 1970s, society has seen an explosion of progress in the digital world. As per Moore's law, we've seen increasing computing power at decreasing costs, but at the same time, there has been a stagnation of progress in physical sciences and related technologies.

This stagnation has caused problems for institutions and economic systems built around a paradigm of embedded growth.

So what has caused this great stagnation? And can Bitcoin fix it?

In this interview, I talk to programmer & data scientist Rob Hamilton. We discuss the embedded growth problem, stagnation leading to violence, and how bitcoin realigns natural progress.
