It's Not My Fault: The Reality of Group Evil 

To create Edgar Prince, the villain in eHuman Dawn, I had to dive deep into the shadows of the mind and psyche and do some serious research on phenomena called evil. As I began work on the sequel, it became clear that to understand him better, and the world he has created, I needed to go further, and face that shadow directly within my own life and the world around me. As I surface from this journey, I've discovered something very important: One evil man does not make an evil world. We may follow him and make him our leader, (see my blog on psychopaths) but he can't be effective unless his orders are carried out by many individuals, and rarely do the orders seem purposefully evil. Instead, they often make sense from a group perspective, even if they actually cause great harm to others.

How One Woman Is Inspiring Others to Achieve the Impossible

Elsa Hammond is attempting the impossible. On June 7, 2020, she will be competing in the Great Pacific Race 2014, rowing 2400 miles from California to Hawaii. Rowing. In a boat, by herself, for three months.

I heard Elsa’s story this week and am seriously in awe of this woman. I can’t imagine rowing one mile, much less 2400. And to top it off, she is dedicating each of those 2400 miles to the GREAT Initiative, a gender equality charity, with the goal of celebrating inspirational women.

I’m the lead developer for the cryptocurrency, Ultracoin. Ultracoin is joining with BitcoinWoman Magazine to sponsor Elsa in her race. We will be supporting her, with donations and publicity – and by trying to raise awareness of the GREAT Initiative.

May 12, 2020  BitcoinWoman Magazine  and Ultracoin announce that we are partnering to sponsor Elsa Hammond in the Great Pacific Race 2014.

On June 7, 2020, Elsa Hammond will be competing in a 2400 mile boat race across the Pacific Ocean, from California to Hawaii.

The Great Pacific Race is the first rowing race on the Pacific, with teams of 1, 2 and 4 rowers competing against each other on the world’s largest ocean. Ms. Hammond will be traveling solo in a boat carrying no sails or engines, moved only by her muscles pulling the oars, in a journey expected to take up to three months.

Ms. Hammond has dedicated her race to two causes - the Plastic Oceans Foundation, a charity that works to raise awareness of plastic pollution in our oceans; and the GREAT Initiative, an inspirational and growing gender equality charity.

Rowing the Pacific Solo – on Bitcoin!

Imagine spending three months completely alone in a small boat in the middle of the largest ocean in the world. You are over a thousand miles away from land in every direction. You have no engines or sails on the boat at all. The only way of reaching land is by rowing…

This summer, Elsa Hammond will not have to imagine, as she is doing just this. On 7 June she will depart from Monterey Bay, California to row 2,400 miles across the Pacific Ocean to Hawaii. She is competing in the Great Pacific Race 2014, the first ever rowing race in the Pacific Ocean. Rowing solo and unsupported, Elsa will be alone at sea for up to three months. This is the first ocean rowing race to attempt the largest ocean in the world, and the odds are high that the current world record for this course will be broken. Of the ten women who have ever rowed an ocean alone, only two have rowed the Pacific. There are no engines or sails – instead, Elsa will rely on her own muscle to propel her boat 2400 miles to Hawaii.
