By @ljin18. https://every.to/means-of-creation/the-new-creator-playbook-jumpstarting-communities-through-tokens

Web3’s Magic Quadrant for Brands. Why brands that build belonging AND agency are unlocking new growth flywheels where ownership triggers access, and then more ownership, turning customers into brand agents. By DocTom. https://blog.cryptostars.is/web3s-magic-quadrant-for-brands-f8eba163a458

Remaking #PublicGoods. How Web3 tenets of access & community are expanding the concepts of "public", "good" — & even "free rider"! — generating more positive externalities, and bringing more positive-sum games.

#Community Downsizing.

Music #NFTs & Scarcity. How a combo of quantity- & time-based scarcity — for music or other phygital goods — can create continued opportunities to engage your fans, old and new, and create multiple price points for segments of them. By @BlackDave. https://blackdave.mirror.xyz/guBCcYQTsYk_30vjmI8xx2zwQlGbGxNM0Z3YdS95FAk

The Currency of #Community. Why scarcity & immutability, & hence non-fungibility (eg. of gems, tattoos, NFTs) cover a more complex role in the social norms of a community (eg. status, taste, aesthetics), beyond 'fungible' worth. By @divine_economy. https://davidphelps.substack.com/p/the-currency-of-community

Trouble in #Cyberspace.
