Fudge Sunday - Oh What A Tangled Web3 We Weave

Fudge Sunday 🤔💡🤯🤓
This week is about Web3. The goal is to avoid taking a particular side or in any way represent investment advice about Web3.

I once opined on Twitter regarding web1, web2, and web3 as follows in response to Zoom considering advertising back on November 2, 2021:
Web1: No banner ads.
Web2: Sell banner ads.
Web3: Sell yourself as banner ads.
Perhaps Zoom will leverage their video filter ML/AI/AR by launching on persona advertising placement to the highest bidding brands.
“Bob. You’re serving @gucci looks, but you’re on mute.”

But before we get too far… here’s some music to set the mood.
No, I'm not giving you up... anytime soon...

Getting Informed
This newsletter is not investment advice. I might dabble in Web3 things or I might not dabble in Web3 things.
Web3 is a polarizing topic across generations. In fact, I’m referring to Web3 instead of crypto because crypto- (hidden) gave way to cryptocurrency (hype) and there isn’t space to spill enough ink here to change the condition.
Things need to be built. Distraction delays progress.
I’m not giving up Web1 or Web2 and… that’s okay. You don’t have to either.
Some of my favorite Web1 things that take up room in my long term memory bank of a brain stopped working last month. Web1, Web2, and Web3 aren’t a contest or zero sum game.
I’m only suggesting that Web3 will increasingly be a reframed or repackaged way of avoiding references to crypto in describing what will be created in the coming years.
Looking for another phrasing zeitgeist prediction?
  • crypto ⛏ = NGMI
  • Web3 🏄 = WAGMI
Said another way, you’re more likely to remember a fun participatory phrase like surfing” 🏄 than “mining” ⛏ in the coming Web3 years to follow. As such, when Web3 finds the best possible word smithing, neologism, or analogy, we’re going to be participating in far greater numbers.
We just have’t had our Web3 Polly moment. Yet.
Surfs up! 🌊

Sometimes I find it helpful to remember back when the early web was considered "silly" in the early 1990s and referred to as the "world wide wait".

Then broadband happened.

Then mobile happened.

Then this platform allowed us to learn about "silly" new things.
So what comes after Web3?
If I was pressed to think out beyond Web3, it would be something like this:
Web 0: first-tinkerer advantage
Web 1: first-commerce advantage
Web 2: first-marketer advantage
Web 3: first-feudal barrons advantage <– we are here
Web 4: first-geopolitical domination advantage
Web 5: first-idealogical unification advantage
So, until next time. Be safe and be well out there as we enter the first of several Web3 years to come.
