Wisconsin is known for its culture of prudence and risk aversion. So, it is not surprising that I hear people say, ‘I think Bitcoin and cyrptocurrencies are a fraud.’ But when pushed, they can’t explain blockchain technology or bitcoin. It might be a cop-out to cry foul because blockchain and bitcoin are potentially one of world’s biggest collaborative math projects that could transform the global economy in a manner similar to the impact of the Internet. Cryptocurrencies and blockchain can fundamentally rewrite many business models, especially in banking and financial services – which is why we all need to understand this new, emerging technology.

It was a remarkable era. Milwaukee was one of the principal centers of industrial innovation in the United States and became known as “the Machine Shop of the World.” Author and historian Thomas H. Fehring will focus his presentation on insights learned by studying this history of innovation—insights that might help Milwaukee recreate this environment of creativity.
