A few words from Peter:
“I’m in the blockchain now because I believe in the future. When I was just starting out, I managed a team that took a CNC machine shop paperless. (We integrated all the machine controllers to a VAX from Digital Equipment Corp… Sigh.) I’ve been working and dreaming since then toward this moment in time we are now reaching… That moment is coming when robotics, software automation, and AI really begin to join forces. Now is that moment when we have started to define the communication and rules between these more and more sophisticated puzzle pieces. Now is the moment that we are forming our future productivity equations, to free one another from most forms of hard or boring labor. I hope we survive and thrive beyond the wars we still wage. I trust and challenge the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders and engineers and scientists to find their way to allowing every single member of our global society to be free from poverty and manual labor to live productive and meaningful lives as they so choose and are capable of.”
