Dashcam of the event!
About 40 people showed up to Vic’s Tavern on Tuesday to talk about cryptocurrencies. Among the hot topics:
“Is Bitcoin a bubble?”, and “What is Ethereum?”.
In my table before the group discussion, everyone said Bitcoin was a bubble, but with a big caveat, that it will burst into other newer cryptocurrencies, not mostly back into dollars. In the larger group, few were willing to say it was a bubble. I, and Mike S. were asked to speak for the group to the media that showed up with questions about cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. One person, I think it was Kai, or was it Mike (safe bet, there were no fewer than 3 at my table), explained that there were many bubbles in cryptocurrencies, all percolating and popping frequently, faster than most notice.
I felt a little like a celebrity in the room, as several people recognized me from my Bitcoin Symposiums I helped put together 3 years ago when similar crowds came out for an evening of education and visiting.
On Monday I was pleased to attend the 3rd meeting held in Regina with the objective of forming a solar power co-operative. By late November, there should be money in the bank, and a lot more research complete, which will assist interested Saskatchewanians with setting up solar power systems of their own.
Here’s a CBC radio interview with one of the organizers.
Check how much you could save, while paying off a warrantied solar array that will function long after you’ve made an important home improvement.
3rd? Yes, there’ve been 2 meetings this Winter, but I’m counting one meeting put together by Susan Birley last Winter as the first.
When you see someone biking this Winter, give them a thumbs up, and be glad you’re waiting behind them, because they aren’t taking up a parking spot you want when you get to where you’re going.
To the guy who yelled “get real!” at me as I cycled to work in the snow this morning and made me jump out of my skin:
1. You’re an arsehole.
2. What possible difference does it make to your day whether or not *I* cycle to work? You weren’t even heading in the same direction, so it wasn’t like I was in your way.
3. I hope you skid and get stuck in a snow drift.
Get real: Whereas I don’t expect random idiots like that to comprehend that some people actively don’t want to drive, I’d hope that maybe he’d understand that not everyone can afford to drive. I kinda fall into that category. Very, very reluctantly I am learning to drive finally. I feel like I am selling out and going against everything I believe in… but even if I miraculously pass my test, our functional car…

Social assistance programs are not sufficient, and during the Wall years, Saskatchewanians increasingly went hungry.
