    Ryan Robinson Perinchief kept asking the same question about having younger fresh faces on the board. He was quite rude on asking the Premier many times. Great answer Premier Burt, the board members are experienced and Ryan just did not get it. Eron asks great questions, Ryan you need some experience and learn a bit more about Bermuda and its economy.

    I like the interviews, but Eron Hill in particular, needs to stop showing his bias by continually agreeing with the Premier.

  3. I remember being like these young gentlemen myself during my years of blogging and having similar aspirations for getting into a position to make an impact on Bermuda’s future.

    I similarly was as a political commentator for 15 years, though in the age of twitter in blogs rather than video. Prior to being asked to take on the fintech role I’d never been accepted onto any committee or government board despite applying quite a number of times. I’m also not a PLP supporter (or an OBA supporter for that matter) and have always put Bermuda’s future above politics.

    The housing issue the Premier mentions is something I wrote about for many years and did quite a bit of analysis on (https://www.21square.com/2018/02/thoughts-on-the-budget-eliminating-the-cathedral-limit-in-town/). My blog reflects the many years of thought put into our local economy and perhaps a motivation of why I was selected to sit on this committee.

    I’m also 38 and a Bermudian tech innovator. It may not be too glamorous but enabling, on a couple days notice, hundreds of people to schedule and attend tests daily isn’t a small feat. Particularly with constant demand, without major hickups also plays a part in the successful launch of the southside lab.

    Perhaps I’m not as young as these gentlemen would like but there’s at least one representative on the group under 40.
