Peter Thiel promoted Bitcoin after his fund sold most of its BTC holdings

Tap to view the source.

In his keynote at Bitcoin 2022 in Miami (which took place in early April), Peter Thiel provided an “enemies list” of the “financial gerontocracy” and “woke companies” who just didn’t “get” Bitcoin, whom he accused of holding it back from reaching 10x or even 100x gains. You can see bits of his rant in the video below:

I wonder what the crypto bro who posted this video is thinking right now.

Here’s the twist: in the month before that keynote, his fund divested itself of most of its crypto holdings. Simply put, he was pumping Bitcoin almost immediately after the VC fund he founded had sold it off. There’s no way that he didn’t know about this.

Here’s an excerpt from the Financial Times story, Peter Thiel’s fund wound down 8-year bitcoin bet before market crash:

Founders Fund sold out of the vast majority of its entire cryptocurrency portfolio by the end of March 2022 — before the digital assets market became swept up in a crisis in May last year, said one of the people close to the fund.

The fund currently has no significant exposure to cryptocurrencies, the people said. The winding-down of its crypto bet has not previously been reported. Founders Fund declined to comment.

Those 10x and 100x gains never materialized. In fact, the Great Crypto Crash of 2022 started in May, the month after Thiel’s keynote. Since then, it’s been a clown show, with the final (I hope) act so far being Sam Bankman-Fried.

My advice: stop listening to Peter Thiel and crypto bros in general.

Tampa Bay tech, entrepreneur, and nerd events (Week of Monday, January 9, 2023)

Here’s the list of tech, entrepreneur, and nerd events for Tampa Bay and surrounding areas for the second week of 2023: Monday, January 9 through the Sunday, January 15, 2023. Welcome to the first full work week of 2023!

Every week, with the assistance of a couple of Jupyter Notebooks that I put together, I compile this list for the Tampa Bay tech community.

As far as event types go, this list casts a rather wide net. It includes events that would be of interest to techies, nerds, and entrepreneurs. It includes (but isn’t limited to) events that fall under the category of:

  • Programming, DevOps, systems administration, and testing
  • Tech project management / agile processes
  • Video, board, and role-playing games
  • Book, philosophy, and discussion clubs
  • Tech, business, and entrepreneur networking events
  • Toastmasters (because nerds really need to up their presentation game)
  • Sci-fi, fantasy, and other genre fandoms
  • Anything I deem geeky

By “Tampa Bay and surrounding areas”, this list covers events that originate or are aimed at the area within 100 miles of the Port of Tampa. At the very least, that includes the cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater, but as far north as Ocala, as far south as Fort Myers, and includes Orlando and its surrounding cities.

This week’s events

5 reasons to go to Civo Navigate – and how to do it for 50% off!

Civo Navigate is an in-person conference taking place on Tuesday, February 8 and Wednesday, February 9 in Tampa at Armature Works, and here are some reasons why you should attend…plus a way to attend for 50% off!

Reason 1: The organizers — Civo

I’m reviewing cloud hosting options for backends for my mobile apps as well as some web apps I plan to build, and Civo’s pricing chart makes them look like a pretty good option right now. This conference is a good option to find out more about Civo.

Reason 2: The sessions

Being a “cloud native” technology company, the topics covered in their schedule are interesting:

  • Kubernetes
  • Machine learning
  • Edge computing
  • Security
  • DevOps

Machine learning, edge computing, and security are definitely up my alley, and I really need to find out more about Kubernetes — usually, I just say “That’s DevOps’ problem,” but it’s a topic that I really should get to know better.

Reason 3: Woz!

Woz — or if you insist on his “government name,” Steve Wozniak — is the keynote speaker, scheduled for Tuesday, February 7th at 8:50 a.m.! It’s always a delight to see him speak.

Reason 4: The venue — Armature Works

Many conference sessions take place in a space like this…

…but Civo Navigate is happening at Armature Works, a brick warehouse that used to house streetcars but is now home to a fantastic food hall and event space. Their sessions spaces look more like this:

And when it comes to conference food, Civo Navigate can promise better than the usual. That’s because they provide meal vouchers that you can use in Armature Works’ Public Market, pictured below:

I’m going to hit Empamamas for lunch and Buddy Brew for coffee.

Reason 5: Showing up has its benefits

Half of success, the saying goes, is simply showing up. Events like Civo Navigate are not just where you might learn something new, but also where chance meetings and opportunities happen. Ask me sometime about the number of great things that have happened to me because I attended a conference.

And now, how to attend Civo Navigate for 50% off

The coupon code TAMPAMEETUP50 will get you 50% off the standard ticket price. There are a limited number of discounts that can be applied using this code, so if you want to go, register now!
