Jameson Lopp is a technologist who has been involved in the bitcoin space for over 10 years. He has worked at bitcoin companies, created and contributed to several educational resources, and co-founded Casa, a service which helps customers self-custody their bitcoin.
Jameson recently hit me up, asking if I'd be interested in a discussion about 'bitcoin covenants'. While I tend to focus more on the 'personal', 'cultural', or 'philosophical' aspects and implications of bitcoin, I am still quite interested in what's happening in the technical department, and even more so about how different people think about the appropriate approach or process to making upgrades to bitcoin.
It seemed to be like Jameson would be a great person to have this discussion with, and I was interested in hearing more about his background generally, so we set it up.
