One Year in the Gooolniverse

109/500
October 4th, 2022
It's been one year since my first tweet which marked the beginning of this whole crazy journey (actually, I started working on the drawings for the Riot Goools in September but I was still just lurking in the space. And the Riot Goools mint began on October 6, 2021, the day after my first tweet.) I don't really know what to write for an occasion like this. I don't think I expected this thing to last so long. When I started, I didn't have any expectations at all. I was literally starting from zero and just wanted to experiment and learn and share art and ideas with people. It still feels like a strange year-long dream. Like one of those dreams where you're constantly meeting and connecting with random strangers and characters. One where the logic of the world is a little bit skewed but you don't question it. It's the kind of dream that keeps you tossing and turning all night and leaves you even more exhausted afterwards.

gooolOS Design & Philosophy Notes

5/500
November 30th, 2022
The Riot Goools website (I refer to it as gooolOS) takes many aesthetic cues from the early world wide web and the computers of that period. More specifically, it draws a lot from the design of the first Macintosh OS GUIs and the work of early Apple icon designer, Susan Kare, who is a big influence on me as a pixel artist. My first interaction with computers was in elementary school where there was a dusty old Apple computer tucked away in the corner of the library that was mostly used for playing Oregon Trail (we all thought it was just an Oregon Trail machine.) I think staring at those little pixelated images flashing on the screen likely started my obsession with making drawings out of little squares and turning those drawings into little worlds with meaning.

Holly Herndon: Consensual Data in the Age of AI

Experimenting at the edge of new technology, multidisciplinary artist and composer Holly Herndon has raised an AI, developed a digital twin Holly+, and is now breaking new ground building tools to help artists protect their IP in the rapidly developing AI landscape.  With a doctorate from Stanford's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics researching “interplay between machine learning and the voice, and the implications of this technology for IP and vocal sovereignty,” and six years of hands-on experience developing her own vocal model, Holly is working to build a future where artists are empowered to work creatively with AI. The key? Consensual training data.

Using Music NFTs For Social Impact: Paying It Forward

My name is Heno. & I’m a first generation Ethiopian-Eritrean American from Takoma Park, Maryland. I’m an artist, producer, storyteller, community organizer, Web3 trailblazer & so much more, but today I’m speaking to you candidly as a 6’4’ Black man who lives in America. Growing up how I did, it was normal to not speak much on the things we dealt with every single day; whether it’s due to not wanting to burden anyone, not wanting to be labeled with any stigma, not wanting to appear weak or just because society has taught us how to internalize & suppress our trauma REALLY WELL.

Building A New Social Network with Web3

28/500
October 21st, 2022
In May 2022, without any warning or justification, the Bankless YouTube channel disappeared overnight. After 2 years, 10k hours of content, and 150k subscribers, it was gone! The Bankless founders and community cried that it must be intentional because of the threat crypto and Web3 pose to YouTube and its parent company Alphabet. At that moment, it felt hopeless and unclear what could be done, having seen other crypto YouTube channels get banned. Then, less than 24 hours later, Bankless was back up! YouTube’s CEO Susan Wojcicki retweeted a thank-you from the Bankless team, remarking it was just “a mistake” and glad they could fix it. But for many of us, it was a stark reminder that while we, the Web3 community preach self-sovereignty and the goal of taking back control from the centralized powers, the dirty truth is we remain all too dependent on these Web2 incumbents, even when we know they could cut us off in the blink of an eye.

One of the primary features of Gallery is enabling users to display their NFTs. To facilitate this, we need a quick way to retrieve all NFTs that belong to any given wallet address. Unfortunately, the Ethereum blockchain was not designed with a magical "get me every token that person owns" command, let alone other ways to slice the data: handling NFTs that are staked or escrowed, retrieving NFTs that were created by a specific address, retrieving NFTs an address once owned in the past, etc.

The evolution of NFT market structure provides a helpful understanding of where all markets are trending, over time, as a result of technology innovation and new models for financialization.

Why should images conform to the rectangular frames that conservative publishing platforms provide us with? This is a call to reshape the mediated image.

As a builder in the crypto/web3 space, sometimes it feels like you’re building against the current because there are strong ideological components to what we build.

What We Can Learn from Decentralized Community Building

6/200
July 21st, 2022
Over the past two years, we’ve witnessed a meteoric rise in the power of decentralized community-building. In a crypto-native, ownership-first era, users are opting to spend their time in digital places that offer not just a better user experience, but more autonomy and influence, more economic incentives, more connection, and ultimately, more fun.

Defining "NFT" in historical context

3/5
June 15th, 2022
NFT is a weird three-letter acronym. Even the people who are involved in NFTs are not exactly sure how to define an NFT. No wonder the normie world is confused. Expanding the acronym just makes things worse: Non-Fungible Token is still ambiguous.

Yesterday morning, I was bright-eyed bushy-tailed; and prepared with a list of topics that I wanted to discuss for my weekly 1:1 with my manager. As I hopped on and landed on the waiting screen, I saw my manager and Devin on the call. I knew something was up but I joined with a smile. My smile immediately fell flat within seconds as I saw the distressed look on Devin’s face. I knew he was going to deliver some hard news to me and he did.

Write to Learn

11/1000
June 25th, 2022
Writing isn't something that only writers do. It's a basic skill for getting through life. We write to explain, and we write to explore. When explaining, we also help clarify concepts to ourselves. When we explore, we push the boundaries of what we know and think about – changing the way our minds work.

I’ve been looking into some social protocols and the one that I would bet on winning is Farcaster. I think they're doing multiple things that other protocols aren’t doing, building a product-driven protocol, the protocol is following the sufficient decentralization concept, a desktop app, and focusing on creating an early community.
