Replaces all instances of the word "blockchain" with the phrase "mulitple copies of a giant Excel spreadsheet".
WHAT: This is a Chrome browser extension that can help readers contextualize news stories with hype about multiple copies of a giant excel spreadsheet technology, by reminding you that multiple copies of a giant excel spreadsheet is, in essense, a giant Excel spreadsheet. WHY: For fun. SPECIAL THANKS: Twitter user @mims (Christopher Mims) for the suggestion to make a "browser extension that replaces "blockchain" with "mulitple copies of a giant Excel spreadsheet." For example, "multiple copies of a giant excel spreadsheet to revolutionize journalism." Thanks to Tom Maxwell for the tutorial and template code for this project! Enjoy! -CBL
