Back in Feb, I heard I'd been selected for @TEDTalks #TEDMysteryExperiment $10,000. Conditions: don't save the cash, tell TED how I spent it and - important - tell nobody.

Great piece by @notscottmoore on DAOs + new ways of working. As impact networks, DAOs are held together by: - shared narratives (whether the mission or the memes) 📜 - collective economic incentives 🪙 - flexible local governance structures ⚖️
"Web3 is an antidote to an increasingly abstract economy and, through a sense of play, gives us a chance to more directly sign meaning into every block in which we take part," says @notscottmoore. Opinion #futureofworkweek, presented by @nexo trib.al/dCLlo8G

Incredibly sad to witness the demolition of hard won human rights in the country that has led the way for decades, during pride month. It's time to resurrect the original spirit of pride: we have to swing back from parade to protest, from celebration to fight.

Let’s be clear: Abortion is healthcare. Healthcare is a human right. Abortions have always and will always continue — the Supreme Court taking away this right will only ensure that they will not always be done safely.

Pouring one out for Time Out Ldn! A decade after Londonist's glory days, there's still so few places to find up-to-date reviews, openings, listings, art, food & more. The weekly mag was essential (& website still a hellscape - pls @timeoutlondon use savings to make it workable)

There are far more honorable ways to burn $50m to impress people than buying a superyacht. Like becoming a @gitcoin grants matching partner! Here are the matching partners for the current round:

A great read for anyone tracking progressive decentralization + the @exittocommunity model "the stewardship of the journey & ultimate destination for @gitcoin are now up to you" - 👏 @owocki
Fascinating example of @exittocommunity as @owocki describes the process of handing @gitcoin over to its DAO and foundation: gov.gitcoin.co/t/passing-the…

If your endowment is like 1000 million pounds, help visionary work have micro endowments for this period so shit can just keep going quickly without this funding slog - let’s say at least 5 - 10, 20 millions for now. You got to keep building the field from the ground up.

My kingdom for the exact concept of Alex Garland’s Men - & same lead in Jessie Buckley - but a different filmmaker’s gaze. Especially, I wonder what a female director would have done with a folk horror story about toxic masculinity

So @TheMoth nights are brilliant + simple; real people stand up & tell stories, 5 mins long, and the only rule is that the story has to be true. Sometimes I tell stories there. Last theme: birthdays sarahdrinkwater.medium.com/b…

For anyone interested in upskilling their writing or editing skills, been playing around with @0xFoster recently; a magical community & Google Docs plugin focused on better writing feedback. (And they're seeking paid contract editors if any of my followers are looking)

A wild seed VC vs DAO members #futureoffunding thread: 🔺 reading the gov forum comments, most folks don't seem to understand binding contracts. You can't govern well without education. 🔺 investors need to add value (bet a lot of web2 companies wish they could do this..)
Uhh… a massive DAO just voted to “refund” one of their investors who was owed a 30x return ($5M+) This is an insane story that impacts all builders in web3 and as a founder I need to speak out Merit Circle DAO vs YGG 🧵

West Europe is the #newpaloalto "Amazing companies, human capital & culture that's unparalleled, 7/30 best global universities, regulators nearby &, crucially, a value system that differs from Palo Alto" @cape More connection needed but density + diversity of industry = yes
