“If you build it, he (they) will come.” - Field of Dreams
Translation: Famous (often misquoted) quote from a classic film that ties nicely into the world (and notably technology). Most people don’t ‘know’ they need things until you take it away - did you know you needed a smartphone in 2000? Yet today you can’t live without it. Initial iterations of technology often seem crazy and unnecessary, but the use cases eventually become self evident (it’s happening now with blockchain). This all also ties nicely back to Andreessen’s call to build - Time to Build. Enough speculation and complaining - Now is the time to build the future the way we want it.
The Ultimate Guide to Inflation [Article]
Recap: Confused about inflation, the different types, how it comes about, and how it impacts you? Check out this helpful 'first principles' primer by Lyn. She provides useful historical context, and ties everything back together to today.
Comment: Check out our post from about a year ago (and tracker here) - it’s worth the refresh. Quick excerpt from Curation ‘predictions’ from 6/7/2020: ‘After decades of no inflation, we will start to see real world inflation (not just financial asset inflation, which central banks have driven for 20+ years) in 2021+ driven by localization + government printing + commodities.’ We continue to think understanding inflation is critical.. and we will be updating these thoughts again in the coming month or so...
CrowdCent <3 Numerai [Post]
Recap: Core to CrowdCent's mission is crowdsourcing and decentralizing investment management. Step 1: CrowdCent is building the first hedge fund 'dapp' - a decentralized app on top of Numerai. If you are a data scientist and interested in building, reach out (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
Comment: Check out these two posts (here and here) and this tweet for more information on the vision. In addition, Jason has recently joined the Council of Elders to listen to the community and help accelerate innovation.
Recap: Raoul delves into the technologies that are changing at an accelerating (exponential) rate - most notably blockchain + crypto. He then ties how these fundamental paradigm shifts impact his broader global macro view. Long story short, everything is changing.
Comment: If it feels like things are changing faster, it's because they are. We are on the exponential curve with many technologies (artificial intelligence/machine learning, blockchain, etc.), yet our minds tend to think linearly. This fast pace of change can be difficult (hard to keep up with skillsets + understanding), and is very typical of 4th Turnings. We are here to help ‘slow things down’ + explain. Share CrowdCent + Curation with friends and family, join the community, email us (email@example.com) - it’s time to build!
