A common trend I'm seeing. Everyone is quitting their 9 to 5 job in web 2 so that they can work 24/7 in web 3. This is a very telling sign of things to come...

Web2 boss hates web3? We have hundreds of open job positions. Please email: [email protected]
Why web3 matters: @cdixon on the evolution of the web, centralized-to-decentralized, digital property rights via tokens, and an internet owned by builders and users, not platforms. future.a16z.com/why-web3-matte…

Rule of thumb - when faced with a trillion dollar industry that could define the future try not to screw it up.

ETH is internet money.
The Web 2.0 business model is attract & extract. Google, Spotify, Fortnite. All walled gardens meant to entrap and profit on our behavior. Verticals using this model are ripe for disruption. See how Gods Unchained disrupts gaming with @ChrisClayPlays newsletter.banklesshq.com/p/play-to-earn…

Behavioral economists theorize that there are 4 drivers that form the underlying architecture of human motivation: The drive to acquire ($, NFTs), bond (DAOs, friends, guilds), invent (minigames, metagames), and defend (ideology, battles, territory).

"The most valuable NFTs are, to put it simply, beautiful. Manifold treats the blockchain like a new kind of artistic canvas — and like any new medium, there are now new forms and ideas to play around with.

Also fun to work with my friend @garrytan on @manifoldxyz — check out Garry’s chat with @ediep here youtu.be/ibAmfhumBBQ
The team -- led by @ediep, @richerd, and @wwhchung -- has deep software expertise and a strong commitment to building protocols that work for individual NFT artists and the entire web3 community. We are thrilled to partner with them :)
Some of the most talented innovators in web3 are building dynamic functionality with Manifold, including @Mad_Dog_Jones, @fvckrender, and @muratpak. The source code for these unique artist collaborations will be available to any artist.
Manifold Studio is their new toolkit that deploys creator-owned smart contracts that mint NFTs with on-chain provenance, interoperable with all major NFT marketplaces. There are many features coming soon, including new ways to track and manage royalties. manifoldxyz.substack.com/p/manifold-stu…
Manifold is offering compelling ways to move beyond the skeuomorphic phase by letting creators experiment with novel applications that will push NFTs and web3 into entirely new directions.
I've written that the early web and early days of web3 have similar limitations: people's interaction were "read-only" and founders started with skeuomorphic copies of older technologies. cdixon.mirror.xyz/0veLm9KKWae4T6…
Excited to share that we've co-led the seed round in @manifoldxyz, which equips artists with creative tools that allow them to push the boundaries of NFTs and web3 �a16z.com/2021/10/05/inv…e
Want a better internet? Here are some ideas on where to start... Great working with @milesjennings, @jamesrathmell, and Team @a16z on this important set of #web3 policy proposals for the Senate Banking Committee. a16z.com/2021/10/05/our… #tech

@cdixon “Don’t hate the player; hate the game.” Web2 rules made the centralized platform vs. users conflict inevitable. So Web3: - designs new rules, - aligns incentives of the builders and users, - and makes the centralized platforms redundant to distribute more value to communities.

How open lost to closed in Web 2 — and how Web 3 can bring open back 🧵

people are talking trash about "web3" as a term, but having all my data on multiple websites is cool and having websites compete on interfaces for the same data is rad

Blacksmiths make their own tools. “Carpenters don’t make their saws and hammers, tailors don’t make their scissors and needles, and plumbers don’t make their wrenches, but blacksmiths can make their hammers, tongs, anvils, and chisels.” goodreads.com/book/show/1863…
Web 3 extends this power beyond software to services, making it possible to build an open internet that doesn't compromise on features or user experience.
The power of open source software is, as @naval says, that the world only has to solve each problem once twitter.com/naval/status/1…
This will hopefully unlock a new wave of innovation. Open services support composability— the ability to remix open services the way you can currently remix open source software.
We’re about to see a wave of new consumer apps including social networks that take advantage of this.
Combined with the right front-end clients, open services can now match the advanced functionality and streamlined onboarding of centralized services.
This means that in Web 3 you can now build advanced protocols that are open like RSS but also store things like usernames, social graphs, and posts in a credibly neutral way.
(For those who didn’t realize that modern blockchains are fully developed, near Turing-complete computers, there are in-depth materials on the topic here a16z.com/2018/02/10/cry…
