Any Color You Like – Blockster Interviews Scott Page, Founder of Think:NFT

The first time I heard Scott Page perform was in 1988 in Philadelphia, when he was the saxophonist for Pink Floyd. As an impoverished college student at the time, I managed to procure a Pink Floyd general admission ticket by saving a few weeks’ earnings from playing piano in dive bars and bartending in piano bars. The highlight of that concert was the Floyd classic “Us and Them”, which contained a freakishly gorgeous saxophone solo. From my nose-bleed seats, Scott may have been a diminutive speck on stage, but his musicality was monstrous.

I had the privilege of seeing Pink Floyd in concert on one more occasion, a year later. I was still a destitute college student, but my entrance strategy had changed: I would find the weakest link in stadium security and sneak in. After probing the defensive firmaments of Veterans Stadium–the former South Philadelphia home of the Phillies and Eagles–for the better part of an hour, where I frequently caught the curious (but mostly disinterested) eyes of the arena’s ragtag security staff, I decided to go for broke. A portly guard had wandered just far enough (for a smoke break) from his posting at a half-opened maintenance door, which provided an instantaneous opportunity for free admission. Bum-rushing into the aperture the Rock and Roll God’s had generously provided—with the fat security guard’s protestations reverberating behind me—I sprinted up the stadium’s ramps to watch a hellishly great concert, with apologies to Pink Floyd.

Scott Page is the quintessential spokesperson for the crypto lifestyle. He is a pioneer in NFTs and Web3, driving innovation and change on his own terms while supporting a myriad of community projects that further the greater good. Mr. Page understands that the pursuit of artistic and financial freedom is a collective responsibility, and that Web3—with its liberating promise of decentralization—gives content creators the best means to break free of the centralized power structures that control the music industry, the world’s banking system, and our dominant social media platforms. Always generous with his mentorship and time, Page agreed to share his insights with Blockster at his Think:NFT Experience, which took place at the Wisdome complex in Los Angeles, California earlier this year.

Check out my interview with Scott Page here:

In addition to a relentless studio and tour schedule, Scott Page and Think:NFT have partnered with a stunning roster of superstars in the world of art and music for numerous virtual and IRL events throughout this year.  Blockster will keep you informed about all of it and provide on-the-ground coverage whenever possible.

The next time I talk to Scott Page, I plan to share with him my three-decades old gatecrashing anecdote. My infiltration might have undercut a few dollars of the band’s take-home pay that night (Scott, I owe you a beer!); however, my intuition tells me that Mr. Page would not have completely disavowed my actions. Flashing ironically forward to today, given his relentless evangelism of decentralization and Web3 technology, I’ll wager that he will assign some merit to my past subversive efforts.
