In this conversation, Samuel and Adriana chat about how inspiring having access to technology at an early age can be, rebuilding the internet and the pitfalls of centralised systems, being a CTO in an incubator and solving 'first principles' problems, cypherpunks and bitcoin, the technologies that will most impact the future, using electricity to secure value and, finally, what needs to happen next in order to take this 'internet upgrade' to the next level. Plus, great advice for those trying to figure out what to do with their life, or looking to change their course.
