Aral Balkan, in his usual no-nonsense style:
Towards the end of 2021, I started noticing more and more “articles” on “web3” cropping up, each one more grating than the last.
It was as if
journalistspublic relations hacks were in a race to the death to see who could best parrot the latest right-libertarian techbro bullshit from bullshit press releases ejected out the fetid bowels of bullshit startups in Silicon Valley, the world’s capital of bullshit.
I felt we could all use a little antihistamine – not to mention, a different term we could use to differentiate ourselves from the bullshit – so, over the holidays, I created the web0 manifesto.
“The web0 manifesto: a short and sweet middle finger to web3.”
I’ve already signed it, and I encourage you to do so.
As he has done before, Aral walks the walk, he’s not just talk.
