But an equally obvious case is BitCoin where people who live in Iran, Syria or Libya may rather put their money into non-governmental units (even knowing the risks) than to trust their local governmental leaders to protect their assets from inflation or seizure. Think Tunia, Egypt, Syria and now Turkey. I spoke this past week at the LeWeb conference in London, which was a superbly well run event with a very quality production team. Kudos.

Are Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality the next computing platform?

Version One Ventures

And the Virtual Reality documentary, Project Syria , is showing VR’s powerful ability to affect us emotionally by letting us walk in someone else’s shoes. There’s a lot of discussion these days about what the next breakout computing platform will be: wearables, the Internet of Things, Bitcoin, VR/AR, or something else that we haven’t heard about yet? I think VR/AR is a strong candidate, since it feels like a logical extension of our current computing platforms.

The threat is here it’s just distributed unevenly – A2/AD and the aircraft carrier.
