The April 2018 issue of Smithsonian magazine published an article on Bitcoin. In passing it mentions the underlying technology of blockchain. As with many main stream news sources, they have not yet realized the game changing technology is not Bitcoin, but blockchain. Without blockchain, there is no Bitcoin.
However, Smithsonian magazine interviewed Cameron Winklevoss for the article, and Winklevoss really does understand the importance of blockchain applications. As quoted in the article … “He likens blockchain technolgy to the early days of the internet. ‘People thought, why do I need this? Then a few years later they’re like, I can’t live without my iPhone, without my Google, without my Netflix.'”
