From Gavin Wood in a Wired interview:
I think the model for Web 2.0 was much the same as the model for society before the internet existed. If you go back 500 years, people basically just stuck to their little villages and townships. And they traded with people that they knew.
Note: this is not even close to true.
More proof that tech is a remarkably ahistorical field.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
