Building and Overcoming the Hard Things
with @brian_armstrong @bhorowitz
A conversation on management, company culture, and much more on building and overcoming the hard things… beginning with what’s top of mind for so many in the crypto industry and in the news right now (FTX etc.).
Mental Models for Navigating Crypto Markets & Cycles
A (rerun but perhaps more relevant than ever) hallway-style conversation about market conditions, cycles of innovation, and mental models for navigating crypto and web3.
Mainstreaming NFTs: Use Cases, Art, More
with @punk6529 @cdixon @smc90
Chris Dixon and Sonal Chokshi chat with Punk6529 about NFT use cases; NFT art (and generative art!); VR, AR, metaverse; more. As well as about regulatory mindsets, moves, and news -- such as Apple's in-app purchasing guidelines for NFTs, and Reddit NFTs.
The Metaverse, Crypto, Virtual Society
with @hermannarula @virtualelena @smc90
A deep dive on all things metaverse -- what it is, what it isn’t; how VR, videogames, sports, fashion, communities play here; where crypto comes in, including trends in DAOs, on-chain gaming, etc. We also go well beyond technology, into science fiction, the arts, narratives, and more in this wide-ranging conversation.
Age of Wonders: NFTs, Art, AI, Cycles of Computing
with @kevinrose @cdixon
A tour through hot topics both within and beyond crypto – including art, AI, the evolution of mediums including blockchains; a deep dive on NFTs, artists, communities; debates around cc0, modding and copying, royalties; plus role of brands, DAOs, creation by crowds; and much more... including building in web2 to web3, from two veterans of both movements.
Ethereum, Merge and Beyond
with @timbeiko @tim_roughgarden @alive_eth @smc90
A deep dive on all things Ethereum, which this week makes the big move to proof of stake in The Merge. But our conversation, which certainly goes into The Merge and shares lots of in-depth and behind-scene details and bottomline on what changes, what doesn’t -- also goes well beyond the Merge, into an overview of what comes next, what’s top of mind, and more.
