My keynote, tomorrow #Computing2018: "No, let’s not put it on the blockchain".

"To carve out some scenarios where blockchain optimist narratives fall short, & specific properties of distributed ledgers & blockchain work against requirements. Includes GDPR, but no 20M fines." #blockchain Keynote was well received.
The scenarios in this thread, link to slides at the end.
