What’s up, What’s Next readers? Hopefully things are starting to settle down a bit for you after the midterms. This week we’ll be looking at arguments for and against blockchain voting. Also, some of the wonkier news you may have missed in the midst of election fever, including Waymo doing away with drivers, a nationwide consumer biometrics database, and a proposed privacy law that could mean jail time for those that break it.

But what’s up with you? Give me a shout—[email protected] or @IanMichaelLopez.
