Read Write Own (Random House)
Friday, 23 February 2024

In this book Chris Dixon argues that in the past decade the Internet has fallen almost entirely under the control of a very small group of companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook. However, he says that the dream of an open network for fostering creativity and entrepreneurship doesn’t have to die and can, in fact, be saved with blockchain networks.

He separates this movement, which aims to provide a solid foundation for everything from social networks to artificial intelligence to virtual worlds, from cryptocurrency speculation—a distinction he calls “the computer vs. the casino.” Dixon sets out to show that we are now in the midst of the “read-write-own” era, sometimes called web3, in which blockchain networks are granting power and economic benefits to communities of users, not just corporations.
