Hi friends 👋,
Here are my picks from last week.
🏆 Last week, on the first anniversary of the app, Clubhouse closed in on 13 million downloads. Here’s a fun and insightful thread about why real-time audio is freaking hard, and why Clubhouse might still fail.

So... everyone seems to think clubhouse is the "next big thing" - but I think it's going to fail.

Here's how I think it all goes down..
🎮 The recently listed gaming company Roblox isn’t a game at all but a world in which one of the things you can do is play games. This excellent article explores how Roblox’s microverse fits into the larger creation of the metaverse.
🔑 Identity, reputation, and money are slowly converging so that all that we will need for transacting will be our decentralized identities captured in a unique record of our online social contacts. Kevin Owocki says this ecosystem is already forming and gaining steam.
✨ Muneeb Ali suggests that decentralized systems are generally poorly defined and often misunderstood. He proposes a succinct definition that helps compare the pros and cons of different approaches.
🛸 DAOs again. This time by Packy McGormick.
🌏 Crypto and climate don’t quite get along yet. Albert Wenger shares his thoughts on how to reconcile his active involvement in both spaces.
An important element missing from the list: crypto-powered governance markets have the potential to solve the tragedy of the commons and drive future abundance at the same level of scale as the stock market and the corporation have done since the 1840s.
🤷 System innovators face a dilemma: There are no existing markets for truly transformative change, but choosing to serve existing markets generates incremental impact at best.
🦠 Pandemics are a ruin problem – a high-impact event with high odds of surviving a single event but low odds of surviving repeated exposures. To prepare for the next ones, we need to rethink our governance and invest in global public goods.
