Blockchain is the technology the underpins digital currency (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and the like). The tech allows digital information to be distributed, but not copied. That means each individual piece of data can only have one owner.
“Picture a spreadsheet that is duplicated thousands of times across a network of computers. Then imagine that this network is designed to regularly update this spreadsheet and you have a basic understanding of the blockchain.”

I first got the computer bug in 1984 while attending marquette university getting a degree in mechanical engineering. Back then we had to wait in line to use the dumb terminals in the lab that were hooked up to a mainframe to do our assignments. That christmas santa gave me ($199) a commordore plus4 personal computer. After connecting it to our black and white tv and an acoustic 300 bps modem i was able to login into the mainframe, do my assigments and pickup the printouts next day. At the time i realized that this was important knowledge and i spent countless hours learning basic and machine language. I was born in malawi (africa) of greek parents and we lived there until i was 13 years old, spent my high school years and university in athens, greece, transfered to a US university were i graduated with a degree of mechanical engineering, moved to los angeles in 1986 were i got a sales job at a Hollywood apple dealer.
