Future of Work & DAOs. Why the future of work is the 'X-to-earn' model, and DAOs will be the coordination layer that enables this model, based on your level of work, contribution, participation, play, or just learning. By @benschecter. https://future.com/the-future-of-work-daos-crypto-networks/

The Community is the Message.

Compounded Culture. Why compounded culture — when an art/product/personality becomes so important in your social circles that you have no choice but to engage with it — is key to understand, both individually and collectively. By @danidoesnotxist. https://www.pronounceddrop.com/post/compounded-culture

DAOs are not corporations Why when decisions are convex, decentralizing the process of making that decision can easily lead to confusion, and when they're concave, relying on the wisdom of the crowds can give better answers. By @VitalikButerin. https://vitalik.eth.limo/general/2022/09/20/daos.html

The New Fandom Formula. Why Community (eg. niches) x Autonomy (eg. no-code creator tools) x Equity (eg. Web3 ownership economy) are the pillars of the new fandom formula, which is reinventing the playbook of value creation & sharing.
