Last night we streamed the first in a six-part video series examining the business model of We Work (data analytics) and how Adam Neumann’s new venture in the rental “experience” market is likely to intersect with a16z’s Web3 investment strategy. Future installments will feature discussions with Leo Saraceno, Lynn Davenport, Cliff Gomes, and Brandi Hartley. We’ll be exploring how “sustainable” pay for success finance in affordable and workforce housing will advance social computing within the context of Neumann’s vision of a capitalist kibbutz. I’ve created an extensive slide deck with links that you can view here. I plan to run part two with Leo Saraceno next weekend. Be advised that tropes like the 15-minute city are meant to keep people at the surface. “Flow Life” will be a deep dive into the structural aspects of the system with a focus on data, finance, and complex emergent systems. Stay tuned. There’s much more to come.
