Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is one of the more comprehensive presentations of web3 in a learning context I've seen recently. The medium is Google slides, but the content is dense enough to be useful. There are overviews of tome of the major terms - blockchain, DAO, NFTs - leading to an overview of the fediverse. Scott Leslie then explores how libraries have started to work with web3 before looking at some of the issues and concerns. "The idea is that they can provide the best of both worlds - local instances, serving local communities with locally appropriate policies, and yet scalable via federation."
