The initial excitement of building a community-centered organization needs to be met with the practicality and the skills that allows you to create long-term growth and impact.
And no matter how much the internet will change in the next decade and beyond, educational content will have such a crucial role in making sure that the founders and the contributors meet half way through that journey and build impactful community and mission driven organizations.
We are sitting at a unique point in time and we should not take this moment lightly, as we are responsible for not only contributing to the biggest internet revolution, but we are responsible for driving it in the right direction through openness, inclusion, education, collaboration, kindness and transparency.
This is how I see it for myself:
My knowledge and my skills are not mine to keep, they are mine to share with others and build others up with them.
In my humble opinion, Web3 needs to be built on the following values:
If you know something, teach it and share it.
If you are building something, let others know and get feedback.
If someone you know is building something, find a way to help them, even if it’s just recommending them to join a community or connecting them to someone that can help them.
If you want to make a difference, come forward, share your intention and your values and take action.
If you want to go far, go together.
We are building the people’s internet folks and we’ve got a big chip on our shoulders!
