There's a lot of reasons to hate living in 2022 but the fact that Twitter keeps telling me to join audio conversations like this one feels personally insulting

Here's a good article that includes a lot of my skepticism of DAOs as well a definition of what they are

I listened to the conversation for a minute and learned some new terminology: B2D

B2B = business to business service provider
B2D = business to DAO service provider

massive psychic damage

I have a secret Twitter alt that I use to listen to Twitter Spaces because I don't want these spaces advertised to the people who actually follow me

Something especially insulting is the branding of the conversation with ~emoji vibes~ but the actual conversation is your standard awful business innovation bullshit talk. Reflects the DAO thing as a whole

@darius daos are just corporations but on the blockchain. truly, incredible

@t54r4n1 This is extremely perceptive and the one thing I would add is that "on the blockchain" means "operating outside the laws of any country". That's the main difference, it's a corporation that doesn't have to be incorporated in any particular nation

@darius mmmm love an obvious tax dodge. definitely not going to get yourself in a fuckton of trouble that way, no siree

@Moss I mean counting my bot accounts I have fifty or so

@darius it's always challenging to move between spaces (not Spaces) where people use B2B for business and B2B for DJing

@darius I read this whole thing & 1) imagine being called a "hanger-on" to crypto bros. There's the real psychic damage lmao

2. The number one thing I hate about crypto/VC bros is how they just,,,reinvent shitty systems we already have & then pat themselves on the back for being innovative. Running society as a corporatocracy is what we ALREADY HAVE. Its why so many people are unhappy. Youre not the next Bezos or Musk; theyre gonna come sweep you out with the money they already have

@darius the company my gf stared is basically a dao. Except we put O first, then D, then A. We get shot done first and then worry about fine grained policies.

@darius I had to stop reading the article when it conflated “VC forms are investing in this” with “it’s worth learning about/interesting” on its own merits

@courtney I took it as: it's worth knowing what these people are up to so we can protect ourselves

@darius Wait this is not the point of your post, but Twitter does audio conversations? Like just an audio channel with 73 people you don't know?

Who wants that?

@andy they built it to compete with clubhouse, which hopefully you also don't know about

@darius I've heard the name but that's about it.

Anyway, hell world.

@darius ughgh same, mine is always NFT-related :(

join it, then ask to speak, then proceed to troll the hecc out of them

@darius oh good, it's not just me. I thought I had interacted with something on Twitter that was causing them to push me those.
