CambrianSV Bootcamp Day 3: Betting on Bali - and Bitcoin
Jack Liu and his Cambrian SV Bootcamp team recognized early on that picking Bali for their first global BitcoinSV developer get-together was a bit of a risk. But the attendance of the developers proved that the gamble has paid off.

Turing (1939) based his thesis on the premise that for any effectively calculable function there must exist a computable function. Turing stated this as:
"It was stated … that ‘a function is effectively calculable if its values can be found by some purely mechanical process.’ We may take this literally, understanding that by a purely mechanical process one which could be carried out by a machine. The development … leads to … an identification of computability with effective calculability."
The result of this is that although all programs need not be finite, all programs that are decidable will halt on a Turing machine.
The set of programs that run on a Turing machine and halt that are not decidable is a NULL set.
The Bitcoin script language is Turing complete if the limitations of finite memory are ignored.
No program can be said to be Turing complete if the limitations of finite memory are not ignored.

George Gilder: Forget Cloud Computing, Blockchain is the Future
Recorded on August 28, 2018
Published by HooverInstitution on 24 Sep 2018
Is blockchain the technology of the future? George Gilder, author of Life After Google, argues that bitcoin and blockchain technology is revolutionizing the Internet. He sits down with Peter Robinson to discuss technology, cloud computing, big data, and the growing role of blockchain in innovating new technologies.
Gilder argues that cloud computing, while it was the hot new technology ten years ago, has reached its limits as the physical limitations of big data storage centers maxes out. Improvements in parsing big data are incremental at this point, and it’s time for the next big technology to take its place. Gilder points to blockchain as the technology of the future, with its ability to prevent corruption and manipulation of transaction data and the infinite uses it could have in third world countries.
Gilder also discusses the history of technology, artificial intelligence, and the revolutionary bitcoin. He argues that artificial intelligence can never replace human intelligence and creativity and that in principle, it is impossible for machines to take over.

CambrianSV Bootcamp Day 1
The Day 1 of the CambrianSV bootcamp in the beautiful paradise of Bali, Indonesia started with introduction of each attendees and described their startup businesses powered by BSV blockchain. They also talked with nChain Chief Scientist and Satoshi Nakamoto himself, Dr. Craig Wright and nChain CTO Steve Shadders. Watch this video to know more about the highlights of the event!

Robin Kohze shares about the Cambridge University's Metanet Society at London BSV Meetup
Published by Bitcoin Association on 8 Aug 2019
Robin Kohze, a PhD student in genetics at Cambridge University, presented the beginnings of the society and what made them interested in Metanet during the recent London BSV Meetup. Robin Kohze also discussed MetaVibe, an application on the BSV blockchain that allows users to create local content and enrich the lives of their peers.
