2017 was the year of taking TensorFlow and publishing training sets for it and calling it "deep learning"

2018 will be the year of shoving merkle trees into every god damn thing we can and calling it a blockchain

@Elizafox can we train a robot to predict computation fads or is that too last year?

@Efi idk let me make a training set for TensorFlow to find out

@Elizafox a block chain because you end up chain-blocking people who sneer at you about their cryptocurrency knowledge and how they're gonna make so much money so fast with this new coin they've designed and made

@Elizafox someone should totally take ZFS and advertise it as a blockchain filesystem because it's basically a big-ass merkle tree. Instead of mining blocks, you allocate segments Wonder how many people would fall for it.
