I had a weird dream last night …
So I’m in a subway waiting for my train and I notice a man on the ledge, he keels over and falls on to the tracks as train approaches, I can see the headlights through the dark tunnel, people gasp, some take out their phones and start shooting footage, on reflex I rush to the man as the train speeds toward us. The conductor unable to stop in time honks in desperation. I jump onto the tracks and save the man in the nick of time to the cheer of the crowds…but here’s where the dream get interesting…eye witness news show up on the scene and now I’m being interviewed, and I can already see where this ridiculous puff piece is heading so I get the brilliant idea of using this incident as opportunity to promote Cardano. The journalist/Alice asks: Sean you’re a real hero, what do you do Sean? … without missing a beat I go into “I’m an Ambassador for the Cardano foundation which partners with emurgo and IOHK(input output Hong Kong) an engineering company founded by Charles Hoskinson and Jeremy Wood who build a third generation crypto currency with the goal of solving the sustainability, scalability and interoperability challenges of the previous two generations such as bitcoin and ethereum.” The reporter gives a confused look and says: Ok…Sean, why don’t you tell us what happened…I follow up with “ well I was on my way to my weekly Cardano community meetup from a date with my Lovelace girl Ada when I noticed a man standing on the ledge, as he keeled over I found myself on instinct moving toward his directions when I heard the train behind me, the hair on the back of my neck stood up as if the deadelus bull was breathing down it, I flew to the man like Icarus, jumped on the tracks and pulled him out in the nick of time. The man severely depressed tried to jump in several times. I kept pulling him back each time and kept convincing him that he had so much to live for…how exciting times were ahead with distributed ledger systems and blockchain technologies, how he would get to see the way Cardano would change the world, I talked about coffee farmers in Ethiopia, a bright new future where he would be in control of his own identity and his own money how everything would live on a blockchain in a fair and decentralized ecosystem, anything to keep him from jumping again.
At that moment the dream transitioned to a bar where community members from the forum played a drinking game, every time I said Cardano or deadelus or Icarus or blockchain on tv they would drink and roll on the floor laughing.
We transition into the forum page where the views pile up as the YouTube clip of the interview gets copious likes. Members from the forum create hilarious memes and we transition into a selfie of Charles Hoskinson laughing with one hand on my back and other pointing at me saying “and then he said I flew there as fast as Icarus! ”
The dream ends back at the train station. A policeman throws a security blanket around Bob( that’s the guys name) walking him up the staircase, as disoriented Bob shouts in the direction of the interview I’ll definitely check out that Cardano thing man! And I shout back “cascading disruption man!” Which he returns not comprehending the meaning “cascading disruption!”
