Episode 2: What is Web 3.0?

In the latest episode of The Spin, Mark and Kristen (well mainly Kristen) put their spin on Web 3.0. For the avoidance of doubt, it’s correctly referred to as “web three point O” – Mark apologizes for his apparent inability to get this in his head during the pod!

This episode took us in to the lane we wanted to create with The Spin based on our philosophy that the world is changing at a crazy rate. It can be exciting but scary all at the same time. This is our spin on a variety of subjects to make sure you’re ready to embrace that world today and in the future.

We talk through the evolution of the web from Web 1.0 (think Craigslist), through Web 2.0 (think Uber and Airbnb) to the emerging Web 3.0. We explore some of the background to this evolution and the opportunities it creates for a decentralized world where the user community has more power than the big tech companies.

This topic is important to our listeners as it represents the next evolution of the internet that will create continued disruption that we should be aware of.

Some additional resources and our High Lo:

🧠 Braintrust – the company Kristen used as a case study of how Web 3.0 is disrupting the talent market.

🗞 Not Boring – a newsletter where you can also keep ahead of what’s going in the world to impress your friends and family.
