“If no one seems to understand, start your own revolution and cut out the middleman.”
“I’m not even sure what I want, but that’s not the point – it’s that I want it now.”
“Whenever the old gives way to the new, everybody with vested interests in the old starts crying that the world will stop. There aren’t many people with vested interests in the new.”

“All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure.”

"Facile?" As in "superficial?" As in "appearing neat and comprehensive only by ignoring the true complexities of an issue" (per Oxford Dictionary)?
This may be the most perfectly named "fintech" effort of all time or an April Fool's joke. https://twitter.com/BankInnovation/status/1263850474010075136
