0.55 – The primacy of the network & Web 3.0 — Vince Horn & Ryan Oelke of CryptoMind

Todays episode is a cross post from Vincent Horn’s new podcast, Crypto-Mind.  With permission, I’ve reposted it from  Crypto-Mind podcast.  This podcast is about contemplating deeply the societal, spiritual, network implications of the networked Web 3.0 world.

This episode is all about networks.  Specifically,

  • What’s it mean to be a part of the network?
  • Why are networks important?
  • How do we organize ourselves?
  • How do we identify ourselves?
  • What’s it mean to create value and distribute that value?
  • Which network do I want to put value into?
  • How much whats happening to cryptocurrency is _just what’s happening in the world_ reflected back into crypto?
  • The big network is the Life and all life that we know. Making connections there seems really important.
  • Is it ethical to run a bitcoin node in a world where there is climate change. Is POS a moral eventuality?
  • How a simple Google bus is analogy for new world and a lightning rod for some. 
  • Taking the model of the king and democratizing it some. If you are a good entrepreneur you are king. You have followers .  Take that model and took it apart so everyone can be king in their own way.
  • Rise of mindfulness when attention becomes a constraint.
