Web3 leans on Albert Hirschman’s political framing of “exit”: the belief that ultimate freedom to port a person’s life data from one service to another leads to competitive platforms that maximize that person’s benefit. What if, instead, Web3 were to emphasize another of Hirschman’s concepts, “voice”? A pluralistic version of Web3 imagines a network of cohesive social groups with cooperation and governance as core participatory features.
In this salon, we will discuss the pluralistic Web3, decentralized society, and their applications to date with Microsoft Research and RadicalxChange founder Glen Weyl.
We also encourage you to join us for the full series, Web3 and Society. Upcoming episodes of this monthly series will feature Packy McCormick, Erik Hoel, Sari Azout, Alex Masmej, Bradley Miles, Evan Miyazono, and many others! More info on the series’ program here.
