Hey friends! 👋
Here are my picks from last week.
🚵 Online identity is becoming massively easy to fake. This popular Japanese biker turned out to be a 50-year-old man using FaceApp.
🖍️ In the meanwhile, Metahuman launched a tool for creating high-fidelity digital humans in minutes. If you’re short of dystopian sci-fi vibes for the day, take a look at this video. The “humans” are almost past the uncanny valley

👉 Index Coop recently launched an index token for investors that are seeking exposure to the Metaverse as a whole. Their list of projects included is a nice overview of where the space is heading.
💯 “How do we make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological damage or disadvantage to anyone?” — the mission-statement-as-a-question for Buckminster Fuller’s 1961 research project “the World Game”. This overview by Cointelegraph is less about blockchain and more about Bucky’s still relevant ideas on how to realize a sustainable, post-scarcity world for everyone.
🗺️ People say “Twitter isn’t the real world”, but Erik Torenberg argues why the real world often becomes it.
🧫 Small groups are a fundamental unit of human social organization. Korean evangelical pastor Dr. David Yonggi Cho scaled his religious organization Yoido Full Gospel Church in 35 years into 730,000 members using a method called cell ministry.
🧑‍🤝‍🧑 There are two types of people: Mundians and Modians. Mundians believe the world can be shaped by knowing its immutable laws, while Modians believe in the skillful navigation of the web of social relationships. According to David Boxenhorn, this dichotomy helps us understand institutional evolution.*

1. Not all good ideas are worth tackling now (or ever, even)

🧩: But sometimes immediate action is required

Have a great week,
Olli
P.S. I first learned about Mundians and Modians from Luca Dellanna’s newsletter. I highly recommend the letter to all Mundians.
