I’ve been called way worse :).
I’ve found at most of these events that you tend to have about 10% developers and the rest tends to be a real mix of people from technologists working within the sector to first time attendees looking to see what all the fuss is about. This of course makes it impossible to deliver a presentation that speaks to all these groups.
The questions in this case were about privacy, there were a couple of attendees who debated that they genuinely didn’t care about privacy, the if you’re doing nothing wrong you don’t have anything to hide brigade.
The great thing about this event for me was listening to Paul Brody (of Adept fame) speak about his past experiences with using blockchain and the types of projects they are working on at EY. Seemed like a decent, knowledgeable and humble guy.
