It was time for a change of pace. I do miss the lovely 'stache, though...

Today's "The Future is Upon Us" must-read: Bitcoin and the blockchain. 

Bitcoin has received a lot of press over the last year, but the most fascinating (and disruptive) part about it is the core is is built upon - the blockchain. 

Reid Hoffman (Wired) explains why it is so important and why we're just at the beginning of the changes it usher in. Remember what the Internet was like back in 1995? That's the cliff that we're standing on.

Age is just a number - I love this video by Suli Breaks​. There are many paths and we all go through them at a different pace.

According to Pew Research, I'm a hard-core #Millennial by behavior and #GenX by age only. I must have spent too much time with the young ones at #WCU and been corrupted!

Now that I'm a self-proclaimed "King of Millennials" - I encourage my legion to join +sulibreezy's "Millennial Generation Manifesto" (#MGM).
Seriously - it's is a damn good idea and we (regardless of generation) deserve to make our voices heard.

Looking for something very different from life? Two jobs are open with the Adventurists. While in Siberia, I remember talking with Ladyhawke Willings about her transition from a "normal" job to helping coordinate kick-ass adventures (and subsequently helping to keep us misfits from dying).

Give it a look if you're ready for a change.
Does your day job make you feel like driving nails into your eyeballs and rubbing salt into the bloody seeping sockets? Join us in the fight to make the world less boring instead. We've got two jobs at Adventurists Towers in Bristol. We're looking to fill both vacancies pretty sharpish so if ...

This is a great example of how I see consumer-borne technologies and companies disrupting the enterprise and logistics spaces. Think about the changes that driverless trucks and drones will bring. We'll see much more change in the coming 10 years than in the previous 10. http://tcrn.ch/1xWGdoY
Uber is often talked about for its potential to develop a global logistics service, and it is literally stepping into the logistics space after launching a..

Tomorrow (the 5th) and Saturday, we're at Fort Hood with American Dream U, to help soldiers who are transitioning out of the military.

If you know any military, veterans or their spouses - please encourage them to come. It's free, no strings and is our way of giving back to them for all they've given us.

This must-read article explores the implications of self-driven trucks on the US economy. This is a great example of the change and disruption coming in the next decade. There's a lot that will have to change in our daily lives, our economy and our outlook in order to adapt.

Scheduling guests as we speak (figuratively) :-D
 
Okay - I've been working hard on this and it's time to start sharing! Version 2.0 of the ‪#‎OznogDTRH‬ studio is now open and I'm beginning to record new conversation. It feels euphoric to get behind the mic again!

I'm honored to be the guest on the 300th episode of Join Up Dots! During our conversations I realized some new things, like the dead-simple power of saying "yes" and "no" at the right times - in order to expand our comfort zones and lead to the experiences we really want to have.

“What would it be like if, even for an instant, you could step into the shoes of your childhood dream? What if it is possible – and we’ve just convinced ourselves that it isn’t “feasible” as we’ve grown older?”

Like I say - choose your own damn path!

BTW - 300 episodes, can you believe that? Congrats David Ralph!!

I met Barry at the Brewery Art Colony. During his life-long pursuit of art, he was a sound engineer on some of my favorite albums (from Marilyn Manson, Smashing Pumpkins, Snoop Dogg) and is now exploring photography as a visual medium. We discuss the pursuit of art, overcoming fear and the power of self-expression. #OznogDTRH
