Welcome to Web3, the decentralized internet built on the utopian promises of open access and ownership of technology, currency and power. But as we see a troubling rise in violent and systemic antisemitism, racism, and authoritarianism in general, we wonder if we as Jews and as citizens of the planet are prepared for Web3’s implications and unintended consequences in both digital and physical spaces. Reboot Ideas has invited our technology experts, award-winning journalist Laurie Segall, co-founder of D3, Dot Dot Dot Media and author of Special Characters, and tech entrepreneur and artist Aza Raskin, subject and architect of Netflix’s Emmy-Award winning documentary The Social Dilemma and founder of The Earth Species Project and the Center for Humane Technology, to decipher this critical platform, its seemingly secret corners, how it is informing and transforming our lives and how it might impact our interactions.
Laurie Segall is the founder of Dot Dot Dot, a media company focused on onboarding the mainstream into a new era of the internet, Web3. Segall is an award-winning journalist who has interviewed the world’s most influential tech leaders including Mark Zuckerberg and Tim Cook. Prior, she was CNN’s senior tech correspondent, covering technology and culture for a decade and a former reporter for 60 Minutes. She is the author of the new book, Special Characters: My Adventures with Tech’s Titans and Misfits.
