A Quick Peek Into Our Future

A Quick Peek Into Our Future

Thursday May 25, 2017 is another delightful St. Pete, Florida day, though it’s getting hotter fo sho. SUMMER IS COMING!!  (yelled with a Game of Thrones enthusiasm) Yet with the breeze it’s still quite enjoyable. We gather every Thursday since 2009, to schmooze, network, mentor, listen, learn and hopefully get a bit smarter and wiser. The world is changing faster and faster, and even us cutting and bleeding edge Entrepreneurs are having an increasingly difficult time keeping up. We do what we can to keep it all together, yet according to some really, really smart, visionaries, we are likely to get passed by. And bested. By Algorithms. Biology and data are all algorithms. All programmable. But before we get too worked up, let’s grab a drink and some laughs and dig into tonight’s human to human meeting!

Technological Change. This will be tonight’s main topic, and increasingly inside of / surrounding ALL of us and our conversations, workings, lives, etc.

[] Will centralized data centers be faster / become more powerful than the distributed system we have now?

More high techno babble…

[] Blockchains. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptocurrency

“A blockchain – originally block chain – is a distributed database that maintains a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, secured from tampering and revision. Each block contains a timestamp and a link to a previous block. By design, blockchains are inherently resistant to modification of the data — once recorded, the data in a block cannot be altered retroactively. Through the use of a peer-to-peer network and a distributed timestamping server, a blockchain database is managed autonomously…” {Wikipedia}

Michael Novilla

I'm Michael Novilla and I love throwing great parties and weddings. So as I traveled the world, I explored and brought those amazing ideas home to St. Pete and built us a world-class venue, NOVA 535. I wanted to give back to my community so in 2009 I founded the Entrepreneur Social Club, and host it every Thursday 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm, right here at NOVA 535 in gorgeous downtown St. Pete, Florida.
