Knowledge, Learning, Community

This isn't the greatest article about web3 in the world but I like this approach to making it accessible for educators: "we matched the web3 term with a term or concept more widely used and understood in the education space.They include:

  • Decentralization and Trustlessness- Agency;
  • Interoperability and Portability- Ownership;
  • Community."

OK, the article fails on the third point. My own approach has been to define community as consensus, which is needed to run any sort of decentralized system, and in blockchain-like networks, involves agreement on a single source of truth. But the article isn't deep enough to make the point, though I give it props for trying.
