Imagine, before 2009, publicly defending the idea that soon startups would be able to found new central banks and code entire monetary systems, and that they would be worth trillions of dollars. That's where we are with network states.

The Paradox of Tech Startups and the Rise of Network States For a long time, tech startups had little economic incentive to innovate in foundational social issues like governance and public goods. In fact, the incentives sometimes even ran counter to the long-term best interests of society. But things are changing.

"95% to 99% of software in the world is built without a CEO". Great clip from @cdixon.eth about how opensource remains overly misunderstood and underappreciated. If society doesn't grasp the power of its current technologies, we will struggle to build the next generations of institutions.

"Rough consensus and running code" A lot to learn about decentralized governance from the early Internet. https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc7282.html

We stand on the shoulders of idealists. Open source, cryptography, blockchains, P2P technologies—these groundbreaking innovations were built by extreme idealists. Every time you say "this is too idealistic," remember that.

The educational system is arguably the most damaging legacy of nation-states. It's hard to quantify the negative impact it has on society by stifling children's curiosity and exploratory nature, but I believe the damage is catastrophically high.

Open Social Graphs have so much potential for applications. Events, dating, schools, and neighborhoods, will all (soon) leverage onchain data to create and suggest rich interactions between people.

Just as there are no "internet companies" anymore, soon there will be no "crypto" or "AI" organizations. Everything, from startups and governments to healthcare and biotech, will rely on the same digital, open-source, decentralized infrastructure.

Elon, Balaji, Bryan, and other visionary founders are bringing bold and inspiring dreams for kids to look up to once again: becoming an astronaut, founding a country, living forever. That's how you build a great culture.

The funny thing is that Farcaster is closer to achieving the X vision (everything app) than X itself.

For me, the easiest way to clearly see the opportunity and inevitability of Network States is by understanding the phenomenon of Unbundling and Rebundling in the context of nation-states https://news.peerbase.xyz/p/unbundling

As more developers realize they can code a new gov and become millionaires along the way, the establishment will have a very hard time stopping startup societies.

It's insane how much money these NGOs receive to push their socialist agendas. In 2022, this NGO received almost $4 million, mostly from George Soros. Then you start to realize why some narratives are so ubiquitous. Who is funding pro-tech and truly pro-freedom projects? https://www.opendemocracy.net/en/supporters

That feeling of having a clear vision of the future and working with unwavering conviction to build it. 🫡
