Web3 and Cryptoeconomics
New Economic Fundamentals
with Alex Tabarrok and host Wes Chow
Alex Tabarrok, Professor of Economics at George Mason University, joins hosts Alaka Halder and Wes Chow to discuss cryptoeconomics – the combination of cryptography and economics – which provides a lens into how web3 is opening up fundamentally new ways of trading, cooperating, and communicating.
Status as a Service: Revisited
with guest Eugene Wei and host Nathan Baschez
Much like Clay Christensen’s theory of disruption, as a management theory becomes more well known, it can change the behavior of managers. Three years in, it feels like many of the most interesting trends in social networking are directly responding to the status as a service thesis.
On one end of the spectrum, we have Twitter actively monetizing status by charging for blue checks. On the other end, we have apps like BeReal seemingly in revolt against the idea that users crave status. What’s really going on?
Building to Last: Past, Present and Future
with Elizabeth Barlow Rogers and Hailey Phillips
World-renowned author, landscape preservationist, and civic activist Elizabeth Barlow Rogers joins energy and infrastructure attorney, birth doula, and Interintellect host Hailey Phillips to explore what it takes to build timeless institutions of value, transcending contemporary political drama and lasting for generations.
