Game Theory, Bitcoin and the Matrix of Private Law

Earlier this year I wrote a method for teaching legal analysis by repurposing a law school writing rubric to  be a reflexive, Watson-like learning algorithm.  The response from law professors tended to be “interesting, but so progressive it’s scary.” The response from the market was “lawyers need to do more than think like lawyers, they need to understand the technology that drives the world.” Both I and the profession need a skills update, so I put my personal learning algorithm to work learning computer science and cryptographic law.

Here’s a video from the class:  Game theory, Bitcoin and the Matrix of Private Law. It’s from a couple months ago, so a lot has come to pass in the crypto space since then.
