Speaking of cryptocurrencies and #web3, if you have not read @pluralistic 's piece "Moneylike", read it now:
It does a great job of synthesizing Graber's "Debt. The first 5000 years" into a few paragraphs, and then builds on that to explain why the whole push for "web3" is happening. And why it's a problem.
If that makes you want to read "Debt...", all the better!
