The best TL;DR of what is.
By @laura at her talk "Web3 - creating problems where we need solutions" (vimeo.com/677162808)

Web3 is a fun buzzword used by a group of people who believe our use of the web will evolve into a digital land-grab where you can monetise absolutely everything with the help of environment-destroying technology.

There is nothing besides the text in the image.

@baschdel @laura Thanks a million! 🙏 Completely missed making my post inclusive.

@cityroler @laura You already included the summary of the summary but I don't like the idea that someone out there wonders what the image is just to find out that it is text.

@laura Many thx to Laura for the great talk. This I can send to people asking me about these things<3

@cityroler @laura Sigh, I have heard organizations I'm involved with feeling pressured to answer the question "what are we doing about The Metaverse?" since they don't want to feel stupid amongst their partner organizations...

@cityroler @laura wow, that was an amazing and comprehensive talk, thank you! I feel like I have a "for dummies" level knowledge of web3 now;)

@cityroler @laura
Maybe we need to see in details...
- only the proof of work consensus is consuling a lot of energy. There are amelioration with Proof of stake protocols.
- maybe the usecases of web3 are not yet discovered... At the moment, in media and mass adoption, we hear more about ponzi-schem than innovation.

@thomasv @laura is talking about this in her talk. Not sure if you had the chance to watch it already. The screenshot I took is really just one slide from a 1h talk 🙂
