      We are only on the surface of grasping what this new-found ability of everyone being able to publish as an individual. I'm with Rushkoff in the belief of the internet enabling an entirely new renaissance.

      The renaissance got its own new media, too: the printing press, which distributed the written word to everyone. We got the computer and the internet, which distribute the power of publishing to everyone.

      One example I think of is the intersection between Craft Guilds from the Renaissance and how it is quite akin to what we are now seeing with DAO's. What other previous forms will be brought forth due to the newly made available tech stack we are working with?
