Tim Ferris, Kevin Kelly and the DAO

I listened to a great interview this morning on the Tim Ferriss podcast with Kevin Kelly – a diverse and prolific thinker and doer – a west coast hippie who founded Wired Magazine, recently published a book on technological changes coming in the next 30 years, and in his spare time works on databasing the genome of every known species and documenting every language, dialect, and cultural tradition … amongst other things.

What is of particular interest – not from the interview, but from Kevin’s Google+ page – I saw a link to an organization called Dao. It’s fascinating to me for many reasons, not least of which is that despite their unique decentralized structure, and largely anonymous participants, they have recently raised $168 million in crowd-sourced funding.

Despite the DAO Organization’s apparent rough start, I believe this is a highly significant step in the evolution of startup business models. I don’t know exactly how or when to spend time working it in to a business model, but I believe that in one form or another what DAO is attempting to do represents a sleeping giant – a huge opportunity – the next big disruptive thing.

Consider the combination of:
These innovations were not available a decade ago, and over the coming decade will offer huge leverage for a small funded group with good ideas …
So this morning I went as far as renewing my PGP keys, installed a Key Manager, signed up for an account on Kraken, and moving through the process of getting my identity validated.
No doubt there will be more to come on this topic…

Crazy Sexy Wellness

During  2008 and 2009 I worked with author and film maker Kris Carr and her crew to help expand her personal and professional brand to the web, and to support her off-line publicity campaigns.  I was initially contracted to help grow the business and worked with client to formulate a workable business model, and write a business plan. Later I helped monetize their high-traffic sites and forum.
