    Open Collectivism | Green Pill #18
    Pia is an OG in the world of decentralized, collective organization. As co-founder of Democracy Earth and Open Collective, Pia’s on the frontier of philanthropy, co-ops, and mutual aid—some of the key ingredients for DAOs.
    Pia brings fresh takes on the cultural problems with DAOs, the necessity of un-learning, and the ultimate goal of exiting to community.
    “We are 21st century citizens doing our very best to interact with 19th century designed institutions built with an information technology of the 15th century. I am convinced that it is up to us to design the political and economic systems for the internet generation.”
