The first era of the web, or Web 1.0, was about how we process and consume information. Yahoo, Netscape, Craigslist, AOL were Web 1.0 companies. Google “won” this era by democratising information and building a solid advertisement-driven business model on top of it.
The second era of the internet, Web 2.0, gave birth to platforms that enable interaction, giving us Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, LinkedIn, etc. Information, goods, and services were brought under the same umbrella. Peer-to-peer (P2P) exchange of information was the defining characteristic of Web 2.0. It also propelled the growth of the internet but most of the economic benefits went to large, centralised platforms who set the rules and controlled data flow. This created a complicated relationship amongst the platforms, participants, and policymakers. The fundamental challenge of the Web 2.0 era was concentration of power, influence, data, and capital.
Enter Web 3.0. A new type of digital product has started gaining traction around the world, one that is co-owned, co-created, and co-run. Web 3 and crypto have the power to fundamentally alter the alchemy of how we work, who we work with and what we work on.
Excited to embark upon this journey of exploration?
To explore the world of Crypto and Web3, we are organising a fellowship in partnership with Mudrex. In this fully funded 4 week long cohort based course, you will learn fundamental concepts through case studies like Axie Infinity. Classes will be taught/facilitated by some of the most interesting leaders, practitioners and policy makers.
Classes start May 22, 2022!

💌 How you do anything is how you do everything - The big shift in my life has been internalizing the fact that how we do anything is how we do everything. I now feel comfortable saying NO to almost everything and everyone except my family, friends and you — NC subscribers. Now if I say yes to anything, I give it my all.
💌 The concept of 'mono no aware’ - The Japanese phrase mono no aware signifies refers to the beautiful sadness in impermanence, like the color of autumn leaves as they are about to fall. It is a term popularized by Susan Cain’s new book Bittersweet that encourages us to explore loss, longing and a dash of melancholy as instructors of a more whole self.
💌 Your Network Will Fade and That’s Ok - We often underestimate the power of sincerity when it comes to engaging with people. It is time to give it a shot, not only because it has tangible value but also because it is the right thing to do.
Have a wonderful week ahead.
