The core of community and the future of community DAO

“The more you learn about Buddhism, the more you realize that it has a magical power that will keep attracting people forever. To create a truly strong and lasting community, we need to continue to attract people, or in other words, we need to have a sustained centripetal force.”

The Web3 World

“One of the best ways I have learned complex topics in the past is by attempting to explain it to others in simpler terms. So, I set out to create an explainer doc synthesizing my learnings gathered from friends, classes, entrepreneurs, operators, and other investors. That 1-page explainer doc turned into a nearly 50-page slide deck which I’m excited to share today.”

The Metaverse: 101

“Put simply, the metaverse is a virtual world where people can socialize, work, shop, and play. I categorize it in three ways: virtual reality, augmented reality, and virtual worlds.”


Co-design and ethical artificial intelligence for health: An agenda for critical research and practice

“Applications of artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) in health care are dynamic and rapidly growing. One strategy for anticipating and addressing ethical challenges related to AI/ML for health care is patient and public involvement in the design of those technologies – often referred to as ‘co-design’. Co-design has a diverse intellectual and practical history, however, and has been conceptualized in many different ways.”


This Week In XR: New XR Tech At CES

“CES is more online than off this year, as nearly 200,000 people dwindled to tens of thousands in the physical world. Exuberant dinner parties have given way to room service hamburgers. One CEO told me he’s spent most of his time in a hotel suite doing Zoom calls. More than one attendee shared photos of the empty cab lines on Twitter. To its credit, the CTA was prepared for a hybrid event, deploying an impressive app and website powered by Summit Engine, the product of one of the other international mega events on the planet, WebSummit.”
