Last week David Birch was in Las Vegas for the US edition of Money 20/20. He gave a keynote in the stream on gambling and adult services talking about the identity problem and what new approaches we might look at to support payments innovation in those (large) sectors. He was followed by very well-informed panelists and presenters who dealt with some difficult topics with sensitivity.
