The Quantum Leap from the Gutenberg Press to Non-Fungible Tokens by Rob Hanna

Many of us are familiar with the history around the invention of the press and its profound effects on western civilization. The invention of the press wasn’t a one-off example of engineering brilliance but rather a convergence of many technological advancements and societal friction. The rates of advancement in information technology since that time have moved at an exponential pace such that we cannot appreciate the more recent impacts to our civilization the same way. This talk aims to put content technology in focus to understand how we got to where we are and where we’re headed in the not-too-distant-future.
