Flow Life Part 4 – PropTech and Space Colonies with Cliff Gomes

Last night we streamed part four in our series “Flow Life,” focused on the rental housing venture launched last summer by Adam Neumann (WeWork) and Web3 venture capitalist Marc Andreessen (a16z). Part of the discussion featured a chapter from the 1973 book, “Emergent Man,” written by former NASA researcher Robert Smith, III. Smith described his proposal for an interplanetary space kibbutz, a project to be led by the United Nations. Adam Neumann has said that he imagined WeWork as a capitalist kibbutz. If you’d like to read the chapter for yourself, you can find it on archive.org here.

One thought on “Flow Life Part 4 – PropTech and Space Colonies with Cliff Gomes

    Galactic Headquarters makes me think of ‘2030: A Metaverse Odyssey’ run on SWS instead of Kubrick’s HAL. Thanks for another thought provoking discussion that shines more light on the ‘Elephant’.
