It is hard to write about the web3 for me because for a piece of writing to be meaningful the writer has or imagines a connection to his audience. Argubly our society in the technological western world gets more complex every day. Last year I read the books: Sapiens and Homo Deus. In the book the author describes which immense leaps humanity as a species and as a civilization accomplish since the beginnings.

Stories are a foundational cornerstone of our understaning. We invent stories to achieve collaboration. As we march throgh history we invent new stories and abandon old ones.

Web3 to me means a lot of things many technical but these only give maning to values.

For me the web3 is about human values. Which simply means the best tool humanity has yet concieved to find the balance betetween the needs of the individual, society and the environment.


1/The intersection of Technology and Art.

2/Art, music & literature teach you to see, hear, feel and think. They show you the world, yourself, and how to orient yourself & act in it.

3/In generations past it was always the arts, literature and music that were at the forefront of reshaping culture and shifting its norms.

4/Movements in art, music and literature both influenced and reflected the times, operating predominantly as a reaction to what came before.


FIN/ Thank you, Satoshi Nakomoto. And to all the shoulders that Satoshi stands upon.

36/ Ultimately, the nation-state is just a network (of networks).

35/ Blockchain-based market networks will replace existing networks. Slowly, then suddenly. In one thing, then in many things.

34/ Networks governed without kings, priests, elites, corporations and mobs. Networks governed by anyone with merit to the network.

33/ Blockchains give us new ways to govern networks. For banking. For voting. For search. For social media. For phone and energy grids.


Information Asymmetry - Context Problem

In each topic there are certain persons which could be identified as "thoughtleaders" or public figures in that space. They give talks , interviews write books etc. They are deeply embedded in their context.

Now if a person not embedded into this context wants to explore this context. I would argue that up until now the method most preferred method was to read a book from the person about the context. A book as a medium gives space for a comprehensive introduction to the topic.

But there are problems with the book. You have to remember . You can not query the book for something like:


Rethinking the Office

  • Measure how long People talk to each other
  • create models from discussions
  • have the company as a model
  • writing specs and having programs to conform to them is simply to slow, error prone and creates too much complexity
  • you can see how the old media (written notes, accounting) creep into what could be new processes Ü(experimentation and colaboration in models)
  • get rid of documents all together
  • create sources of proof (chain of trust) as momental representations
  • help build oracles ( predict how models might look like with certain parameter modifications)

Civilization Perspektive - Rückwärts

Dieser interessante Beitrag untersucht in wie weit das Spiel Civilization sich an der realen Weltgeschichte orientiert. Die Beispiele zu Keramik, Eisen und Bronze sind gut gewählt und in Teilen kann man durchaus verstehen das Aufgrund von vereinfachter Spielmechanik Sachverhalte verschoben, verzerrt oder vereinfacht wurden.

Und trotzdem bleiben da die Fragen: Was wäre wenn man zu erst Bambus- Katapult Bomben mit Schwarzpulver hätte bevor man die Musketen bekommt? Besonders kritisch sieht der Autor die Euro-zentrische Perspektive des Spiel in Bezug auf Epochen und Kulturentwicklungsmöglichkeiten. Auch hier wieder eine Vereinfachung der Spielmechanik. Weil es in Europa ein Mittelalter gab muss es das auch so in China oder Südamerika geben? Islam und Konfuzius kommen viel zu kurz.

Man könnte dies wieder auf die Spielmechanik schieben. Ich frage mich jedoch. Ob es nicht viel interessante
