Bryan is usually a generalist, but the space program piqued his interest in technology in the early 1980s. By age 10, he had begun learning electronics and basic computer programming. He has degree in electrical engineering and has spent over 20 years helping manufacturing clients use automation to improve productivity.
Bryan also enjoys amateur radio, kayaking and camping, beekeeping and orcharding. He loves to learn and to work with his hands building, fixing, and tinkering.
Bryan found the TSP community in late 2012 and listens to the show daily. Bryan has been researching blockchains, cryptocurrencies and their practical applications for his personal use. He joins us today to discuss cryptocurreny, wallets and the bitcoin hard fork in laymen’s terms.
