Sam Bowne at City College of San Francisco runs classes on cryptography and computer security. [Samsclass] He’s a fan of my writing, so he asked me to speak to his class CNIT 141: Cryptography for Computer Networks. [course page]
I did a somewhat remixed version of “Blockchain: Magic (Probably) Doesn’t Happen” from a couple of years ago — with a bit more on the frauds and scams.
I start at the basics: what, actually, is a blockchain? How does it work? Because a lot of people who talk about blockchains just expect the audience to know … and they often don’t.
Sam’s put the slides up too. [Samsclass, PDF]
