NFTs are toxic. But they don’t have to be.


#NFTs #crypto #culture #Web3
When I joined the NFT craze in September 2021, I was naive.

Finally, I thought, a way for artists to make a good living. A new digital art movement that would propel the creator economy to new heights.

Was I ever wrong…
The reality: 99% of NFT pfp projects are money grabs that deploy wash/insider trading tactics to perpetually pump the floor, and give the illusion of high demand.

None of the big players were here for the culture unless it was the culture of profit.

Why the FTX drama is not the end of crypto, but rather a beginning. 🧵

(1/21) For those who don't know me, I guess I should start by just saying I've been in this space for a while. I was here before #MtGox imploded. I met Vitalik before #Eth was a thing. I remember exactly..
(2/21) exactly where I was when #Bitcoin hit $100 & $1000. I remember when the engine driving Bitcoin was a philosophical and ideological one, when the space was a bizarre hybrid of gold bugs, libertarians, anarchists, hackers & OG #cryptography evangelists.
(3/21) I've been here for a while & the recent/ongoing drama involving FTX & #SBF is probably the worst I've seen to date.

Lately we've all heard the same question. "Do you think the FTX debacle is the end of #crypto?". I understand the question, but as somebody who knows...

1/29. 📜NEW BRIEF: Today we launch “PASSED THE POINT OF NO RETURN: A Non-Economic #LossAndDamage (#NELD) Explainer” covering what #NELD is, why and how it happens, where it happens, who is most affected, and importantly, how we can respond.

🔗Get it here:…
2/29. The brief begins with a foreword by @UNFCCC NELs Expert Group Member @IrfanUllahCDO, who highlights that Non-Economic #LossAndDamage has been largely overlooked in climate negotiations and that urgent action is needed to address #NELD happening now e.g. The #PakistanFloods.
3/29. Then @DLodry of @LossDamageYouth shares the powerful story of his lived experience of Non-Economic #LossAndDamage in #Cameroon called "The Tears Of A Village River And Its Population" which tells how climate-intensified #Drought can lead to a loss of #Culture and #Identity.

Bhawanrao 'Balasaheb' Pantpratinidhi (1868-1951) who ruled Aundh in #Maharashtra was an unusual king. His work at reforming criminals & convicts inspired V.Shantaram's acclaimed ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ (1957). Balasaheb was born on 24 October 1868
#history #Marathi #films #art
Unlike rulers who tried to cling to power even when the end of British rule was evident, #BalasahebPantpratinidhi handed over the reins of the state to the people much earlier in an experiment inspired by #MahatmaGandhi. He also helped freedom fighters & revolutionaries.
In a sense, #BalasahebPantpratinidhi was among the reformist kings who tried to birth welfare states in colonial India. He was also associated with one of the most popular forms of exercises—the suryanamaskars.

10 ans après les fameuses vidéos sur le modèle Spotify, @duboisrachel revient sur les ingrédients clés auxquels on n’a pas forcément fait très attention. À tort, car lorsqu’on parle de #culture #produit, les Squads, Chapters, Tribes et Guildes n’importent que peu.

#flowcon Image
Fun fact : 6% de l’humanité écoute Spotify (et 2% paie pour cela).
En 2012 le “modèle Spotify” s’est popularisé alors que la boîte était composée d’une centaine de personnes. Probablement l’un des messages les moins compris au sujet de l’Agilité.
La structure est la dernière chose à regarder quand on veut instaurer une culture produit. ImageImageImageImage

There are things you don’t talk about with your colleagues - even less so with your boss. Mental health issues are certainly a big no-no. Are taboos compatible with an #agile #culture?

In this talk, @MlleSophiePofie shares what she’s learned from breaking taboos. #flowcon
“When I first started working as an agile tester, I kept my history with mental illness secret. As a result, I couldn’t speak openly about topics that are close to my heart: mental health and self-care. I didn’t want to seem weak and vulnerable.”
“In the Agile World however, we value respect, courage, and openness. How do you reconcile this with these taboos?
Can you really be courageous and open if you deny a part of yourself?”

Il viso stravolto di #Putin mentre dichiara annesse le province del #Donbass e si scaglia contro l'#Occidente evidenziano l'impossibilità di alcuna #riconciliazione.

1) Fino al #24febbraio ricchi #oligarchi e Russi abbienti hanno viaggiato in #Europa⤵️…
comprando yacht e ville lussuose. Oggi dice che stavamo depredandoli delle loro ricchezze: le forniture di #gas pagate miliardi al giorno e con cui fanno scoperto un po' di #benessere dopo l'#URSS sarebbe un furto.
Direi di non "derubarlo" più.

2) La lettura della storia ⤵️
Occidentale è da bocciatura. Fonde fatti del 500 e storia contemporanea come fossero la stessa cosa. L'#Occidente ha fatto e fa ancora i conti con la sua storia moderna, dai conquistadores in poi. Ma la voluta distorsione di Putin è come se noi dicessimo che la Russia odierna ⤵️

Nicole Gnesotto à #NormandiePourLaPaix : "Il est important de regarder les murs d’aujourd’hui, les crises d’aujourd’hui en essayant d’inventer des solutions d’aujourd’hui. Pour abattre les murs, les outils sont la #Diplomatie, le #commerce et la #culture.
"Le rôle de la #Diplomatie est essentiel : on a cru que le Mur de Berlin durerait toujours, ce qui n'a pas été le cas. Aucun mur n’est infranchissable. Un autre exemple avec Taiwan et le détroit de Formose qui est un mur politique et stratégique" (1/2) #NPP2022
"Cet exemple de Taiwan est intéressant car ce "mur" stabilise la situation et pose la question : faut-il toujours vouloir détruire les murs ? N'y a t-il pas des situations dans le monde où le maintien du statu quo est plus stabilisant que la révolution ou la destruction ?"

आधुनिक भारतीय मध्यम वर्गीय स्त्रीवाद हा स्वैराचाराला डोक्यावर घेऊन नाचतो. यात दहा-बारा लफडी करणे, घरी कधीही येणे, व्यसनं करणे (कारण पुरुष करतात), कुणाचंही नियंत्रण नको असा काहीसा अर्थ आजच्या पिढीत दिसत आहे.

पुरुषांच्या पिढ्यांपिढ्या लढाया करून, पैसे कमवून दमल्या, खपल्या खरं आजवर कुठल्याही पुरुषानं स्वतःला मी आत्मनिर्भर, स्वतंत्र म्हणजेच आजच्या भाषेत इंडिपेनडंट मॅन असल्याचं म्हटलेलं कुठं पाहिलं नाही. स्त्रियांच्या बाबतीत हे मला बऱ्याचवेळा आढळलं.
पुरुष धुतल्या तांदळाइतके स्वच्छ असतात असा माझा दावा नाही. तरी मी माझं वैयक्तिक इतकंच सांगू शकतो की मी स्वतःला धुतलं तर मी तांदळासारखा स्वच्छ होईन इतकी माझी पातळी नक्कीच आहे.🤣असो तो मुद्दा नाही आहे. पण मला कुणी विचारलं तर भारतीय स्त्रीवादाला सुधा मूर्ती सारख्या स्त्रीचा आदर्श

"Hey, did you know the generator is still running?"

With those words casually spoken in passing by a team member, I was propelled into my first major incident as CTO….

A thread on how #storytelling is the secret superpower of great #teamwork. 1/13
After investigating, we discovered a power outage damaged our transfer switch, leaving our data center running on generator power.

For 3 days. During a massive spring snow storm.

The work of an incredibly dedicated team meant our users barely noticed the impact. And yet… 2/13
I knew this was an opportunity for us to learn and get better.

Great teams learn from their successes and failures by continuously reflecting and refining processes and practices.

#SNCC101: In McComb, MS, SNCC organizers were often subjected to brutal force, blatant racism, and various other forms of violence at the hands of police officers, white nationalists, and the local judicial systems.
Bob Moses was no stranger to these harsh conditions. He moved to McComb in 1961 after spending the summer as a field organizer throughout that region and discussing the potential for a mass voter registration with Amzie Moore, a prominent NAACP colleague.
He worked alongside a group of local adults, high school students, and youth who helped with canvassing and the voter registration campaign. On August 15, 1961, Moses and a group of hopeful registrants were pulled over by police after being denied the right to register. Image
