    Ross Thornley and I are on a similar mission; to make sure nobody is left behind as we enter an exponential and accelerating future, which led to an amazing and fun conversation. Ross is the author of two books: Moonshot Innovation and AQ Decoded, an exceptional entrepreneur, and a pioneer in the future of work. Driven by the idea that a person’s ability to adapt to unanticipated changes is the most important skill to master in today’s workplace, Ross launched AQai, an HR/EdTech platform. In this episode, Ross shares why understanding our Adaptability Quotient is so important, what it means to be adaptable, and how we can increase our ability to adapt and thrive in today’s economy.

    Samson Mow is a true tech pioneer so I'm stoked to have him on the show. Samson is a well-known figure in the blockchain ecosystem as well as a visionary entrepreneur in the online gaming space. As the Founder and current CEO of Pixelmatic, he created the revolutionary multiplayer online game called Infinite Fleet, which recently closed a multi-million dollar private round of funding.

In this episode, Samson shares a little about his backstory of getting into emerging technology as we dive into subjects spanning bitcoin, blockchain, virtual reality, and online gaming. We also discuss the current state of bitcoin and the blockchain ecosystem as well as explore the convergence of online gaming, cryptocurrency, and distributed ledger technology.
