Bitcoin's blockchain technology could transform all business as we know it, some claim, and major companies are already exploring the possibility.

Today I was fortunate enough to be able to attend TEDxBuffalo with a group of about 300-400 other people live at Canisius College.  This was my first time at the event, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.  I know what TED talks are and watch them from time to time, but was interested to see what a Buffalo one would be like.  It was… Awesome.  Can’t even think of a better word to describe it.  That’s how I personally felt after leaving the e...

Buffalo! Startup Weekend 2013 is happening this weekend, October 4-6th. I was a mentor at the last event earlier this year and loved every minute of it! Dave, Tim and Brett from Block Club will be there so if you see them, say hi! I really encourage the area’s entrepreneurs, dreamers, designers, programmers, pitchmen, marketing gurus and idea people to attend. You won’t be disappointed. -Patrick Finan
