@ Bruce,

I guess you will not be residing in the TITANIC for your Berlin trip ;-)

Joking aside are you going to be in London in the near future?

Hyperledger forum ? That will be very interesting on the type of speech @Bruce will be giving. If memory serves right most Blockchain topics here are usually very gloomy in nature.

Not be surprised a lot of hip and hyper marketing of Blockchain et. al. can be found in the recent conferences that would paint a bright and sunny picture of Blockchain technologies which you would encounter especially in the Hyperledger forum and so on.

@Clive Robinson
Maybe a topic on "How the Blockchain Security Simply Keeps Giving ?" would be a nice topic on the snakeoil security nature and huge lost of tokens from cyber theft and so on.

@ Thoth,

Maybe a topic on...

You obviously don't know many technolgy "evangelists" ;-)

Because you would know that like their religious brethren what they evangelize about is "perfect" in their universe.

It's naughty man and woman such as us runing through their garden of eden doing what we should not that are the sources of all that is wrong and evil with the real world :-S

Thus they think we should be smited and cast out as though never to have existed. Just like those doddgy contracts that stole "the apple of the eye" of one set of evangelists, that they chose to ignore...

I feel at this point I should give a Douglas Adams quote, but I shall resist the urge as the Richard Dawkins in me sits on my left shoulder urging me to do so, thus a Scott Adams Dilbert "Must resist..." instead 0:)

@Clive Robinson,

Richard Dawkins in me sits on my left shoulder urging me..

I get the joke :) How appropriate!

Safe travels to you, and sorry I can't attend.
Peace be with you and your companions.

This type of thing tends to help me, I'm confident that you aren't unfamiliar with this topic:

http://www.lisawolcott.com/how-to-spot-and-handle-a-sociopath/

As usual, that also tips my hand at what stuff I'm coping with as well.

There's also an excellent book entitled something like "Malignant Self Love" on the same topic (how to avoid and cope with sociopaths and narcissistic creep(er)s).

I'm still apt to purchase your new book one way or another.
I'm looking forward to that. Liars and Outliars is still a great accomplishment and it helped me in my life. Thanks
