My notes from Future Blockchain Summit this morning - see what got me suspended from @Twitter for typing too fast http://www.kevinmarks.com/futureblockchain2018-05-02.html

Twitter has blocked me because my live tweeting looked automated, and are asking me to respond to a phone number I don't have any more to unlock my account. I wonder if they can use the rel-me to this site to see that it is me and not a bot?

Any suggestions for somewhere quiet with good connectivity in central London that I can use to be on TWiG tonight between 9pm and 11pm?
