Talk of the DAO: Web2 Propaganda That Continues to Haunt
by Jessica Smith
I recently jumped to web3 after spending formative years at Meta (Facebook). For better or worse, I’m haunted by web2 propaganda. I can’t shake the posters that lined every office wall, some of them more helpful than others (such as the infamous “move fast break things”). The way they were unnaturally drilled into us makes me wonder if what was forced in web2 is actually meant to be practiced in web3.
I’ll share three posters of web2 propaganda that I hope can be helpful for our work here in the DAO space.
Nothing at [Insert Project] is Somebody Else’s Problem
In a decentralized environment, projects can devolve into a game of hot potato. Under these conditions, those who raise their hands to help and do the work become indispensable linchpins. In DAOs perhaps more than anywhere, it seems the future belongs to those who are most helpful. And, since DAOs rely on people noticing problems and stepping in to solve them, those who own problems and seek ways to solve them will make lasting change in the space.
It Isn’t Prioritization Until It Hurts
Prioritization is painful, even on a good day. The fluid nature of DAOs makes prioritization excruciating. More often than not, it forces us to say no—both to great ideas and to great people. But if we are to create value in the world, we need to be ruthlessly focused on our mission and how we plan to deliver. Prioritization hurt in web2, and I expect it will in web3, too.
They say, “put your money where your mouth is.” This piece of web2 propaganda says, “put your code where your heart is.” When we serve a mission greater than ourselves, we work with our hearts on our sleeves. It may make us vulnerable to heartbreak, but serving humanity is a powerful driver for impact. Why ship a product that you don’t love, or ship something that doesn’t make the world a better place?
While we don’t have physical office walls to hang these posters on here at Aragon, I'm okay with being haunted by ideas that are helpful, and I hope they might haunt you, too.
Nothing at Aragon is somebody else’s problem
It isn’t prioritization until it hurts
