NH is Cryptocurrency Mecca : Panel Discussion

October 21st, 2018 - 3:07pm by FTL_Ian in

Earlier this month, the 2nd annual Free State Blockchain Digital Assets Conference took place in Portsmouth. The event was a success, intimate and informative. In addition to broadcasting my radio show, Free Talk Live from the event , I was also given the privilege of moderating a very important panel which we called “ NH is Crypto Mecca “.

Any Bitcoin conference can have big names in the industry come speak, but only this conference could have this panel. As longtime readers here know, New Hampshire is a special place due to our global lead in real-life cryptocurrency acceptance. The reason is because of the concentration of libertarian crypto activists we have here that are doing the boots-on-the-ground work to make amazing thing happen here, thanks to the ongoing NH Freedom...

Yesterday evening I was invited along with other Libertarian candidates Darryl W Perry and Jilletta Jarvis to Monadnock Developmental Services for a presentation to political candidates about the frustrations that families with children who have developmental disabilities have with state “assistance” programs. Multiple family members presented their difficult stories to a couple dozen state reps and candidates for office.

I didn’t feel like I was asked there to comment, so I was there just to listen. However...

Keene Sentinel Reports on Libertarian Candidates: Freeman, Jarvis, DiMezzo

October 15th, 2018 - 1:45am by FTL_Ian in

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by the editorial board of the Keene Sentinel. We covered a variety of issues that I was able to speak on from a principled voluntarist perspective. It was a very good interview and in addition to a lengthy article about it , they also posted the full hour-long video to their youtube :

However, I’m not the only one they interviewed. They first sat down with Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Jilletta Jarvis . Here’s their video of Jilletta’s interview and...

Discord Reorganization & Improvements + Ian on RT America

October 14th, 2018 - 2:04pm by FTL_Admin in

The LRN.FM DIscord is now better than ever! I've simplified the chat rooms by eliminating the show-specific rooms and replacing them with "on-air-now", which is now the default room for all new users to land when joining the server. This should make the experience more welcoming for new people, and less confusing for people who want to find the chat for whatever's live. I'd noticed people wouldn't necessarily move their conversations to a new room when a different show came on, so let's just keep all on-air discussion in one place, rather than breaking it up into multiple rooms.

Of course, many of our show hosts are partipants on the LRN.FM Discord , so in order to give them a way to reach you without having chat distract from their statements, there's now a host-announcements room where only LRN.FM hosts can post stuff they want you to know.

Also, if you missed my appearance on RT America on...

My Appearance on RT America Friday to Comment on Facebook’s Takedown of Hundreds of Pages

October 14th, 2018 - 12:48pm by FTL_Ian in

RT America contacted me Friday and asked for a quick comment on behalf of Cop Block regarding this week’s mass page takedown by Facebook. The takedown affected the facebook pages of major police accountability and pro-liberty sites including the Free Thought Project, the Anti-Media, Cop Block and others. I explained that Facebook is their property and they can do as they wish with it. Police accountability activists and other libertarians should be building alternative platforms rather than relying on those provided by political corporate behemoths like Facebook and Twitter. Here’s the segment that aired on RT America yesterday :

The good news is, such a platform already exists in the form of Mastodon, which is a decentralized, federated competitor to Twitter. Unlike Facebook and Twitter which are centralized...

Cheshire TV Hosts Debate for NH Senate District 10 Candidates

October 2nd, 2018 - 2:50pm by FTL_Ian in

I had the pleasure last week of being part of the Cheshire TV debate featuring two of the three candidates for NH Senate District 10. Incumbent Jay Kahn was unable to attend so it was a two-way debate between me, the libertarian and Dan LeClair, the republican. We covered multiple issues. Here’s an HD version of the same debate that will be airing on Cheshire TV channel 8 through the election on November 6th. I hope you will vote Libertarian wherever you see them on your ballot!
