What’s Up in February with Jim and Chris – the Geeks?
We got shot!
Shot with our 2 Pfizer Covid-19 vaccinations that is. It took some perseverance to get the appointments, then several hours in a long line of cars to get to the vaccination site at Hard Rock Stadium, but we’re done! We feel like we have a new lease on life.
That was the extent of our excitement this month. We were home all month. We did a couple “Button” Shows on YouTube (see below) and some members-only meetings on Zoom. Our articles are a bit different this month, opinion pieces about Cryptocurrency, Blockchain, and Data Privacy. We still have one ‘how-to’ article about chapters on YouTube videos.
We presented several seminars over zoom for computer clubs – and you can benefit by visiting GeeksOnTour.com/clubs – you will see what topics we presented for which clubs AND you’ll be able to access all the class materials we used. It’s quite a resource – check it out!
What actually IS Bitcoin, you ask? Well, that’s what we want to know as well. We’ve been studying, learning, and experimenting. We think that Bitcoin, or some cryptocurrency, is here to stay. We think that the technology behind cryptocurrency – the Blockchain – will change our world every bit as much as the Internet and smartphones have done.
If you use a smartphone, or any online services, you are probably aware that some of your personal data is being collected. But when all the data about you is out there and gets aggregated, it amounts to a loss of privacy.
