Here’s our talk abstract:

Movement Between Models

Decentralized Autonomous Organisations were originally imagined by cybernetics and later realized on the blockchain. An alegal organizational model ideal for coordinating both large and small groups across territorial borders, DAOs have become a design space explored notably by gamers, artists, and activists, especially in the field of governance. We foresee DAOs playing a crucial role in the passage between what might be termed hybrid realities, both on and offline. This is a natural consequence of internet-native generations’ sharp awareness of living inside political, fictional and other models, and will constitute a powerful form of critique from within.

The whole event program is two days this weekend. The conference begins at 9am ET and has some fantastic programming.
