Censorship-Resistant Publishing

August 15th, 2022
This week, Mailchimp deplatformed some crypto media companies including Messari. This isn’t the first time they have done so; I recall this happening in 2017/2018 too.

Drop Your Email

August 9th, 2022
Between 2010 and 2020, email addresses became the primary identity handle for the internet. Email address list-building became critical for creators and marketing departments as a way to stay engaged and sell to audiences. But it's now time to start building communities around the new identity primitive of the internet: the web3 wallet.

Seoul Bound

July 24th, 2022
I’m incredibly excited to be on my way to Korea again, for the first time in many years, as a speaker presenting Mirror at Asia Buidl and ETH Seoul. I first went to Seoul when I was 18 years old, and lived there with my best friend’s family; this post is a recap of how I discovered some of the things that fascinate me about Korea.

3 Blockers to Mainstream Web3 (2022)

July 19th, 2022
Someone asked me today, “What do you think are the blockers to mainstream web3 for the next cycle?” I thought I’d share what I see as blockers to mainstream adoption, which mostly have to do with L2 and wallets.

Write to Learn

June 25th, 2022
Writing isn't something that only writers do. It's a basic skill for getting through life. We write to explain, and we write to explore. When explaining, we also help clarify concepts to ourselves. When we explore, we push the boundaries of what we know and think about – changing the way our minds work.

Choosing Optimism

May 2nd, 2022
Web3 is now too large and the stakes are too high to launch on the Ethereum mainnet. The Ethereum roadmap pivoted in 2020 to focus on supporting L2 protocols as the primary scaling strategy. Optimistic Rollups are a type of L2, and are production-ready today. Web3 developers should build their applications on one of these rollups, such as Optimism or Arbitrum.

The Elimination of Pain

April 13th, 2022
Some people think we that should eliminate pain from human life. The goal of Transhumanist movement, for example, is to use chemical and genetic technology to live in a “sublime and all-pervasive happiness” – the eternal survival of a hedonistic body.
