Or, an attempt at convincing my friends who care about open source software that blockchain and smart contracts are the future of our work.

10 years ago, I was starting my previous company, Superfeedr. For those but familiar with it, it's a service which provides a push API for RSS and Atom feeds. The basic premise was that many applications were all polling the same feeds over and over again, making something inefficient (polling) exponentially worse, and that a single service could do that and then ping everyone else.
