The web0 manifesto
Is it Covid or bullshit allergy?
Towards the end of 2021, I started noticing more and more “articles” on “web3” cropping up, each one more grating than the last.
It was as if
journalists public relations hacks1 were in a race to the death to see who could best parrot the latest right-libertarian techbro bullshit from bullshit press releases ejected out the fetid bowels of bullshit startups in Silicon Valley, the world’s capital of bullshit.
I felt we could all use a little antihistamine – not to mention, a different term we could use to differentiate ourselves from the bullshit – so, over the holidays, I created the web0 manifesto.
As I write this, it has been online for a little under six days and signed by 639 people, projects, and organisations.
You can also, of course, sign it.

To these fine individuals I say, you can stop worrying: you do not have imposter syndrome; you are imposters. ↩︎
