Each month, “Lochhead on Different” episodes explore the need to differentiate people, products, and services in a world that encourages a lot of imitation. Christopher Lochhead is a best-selling author, top podcaster, and former tech-industry CMO. Today, Christopher and I talk about the emergence of Web3 and what it indicates about the future of the tech industry and the people leading it.
The Big Themes:
- The Web3 breakthrough: basically anything that is built on the blockchain is considered Web3, and Chris believes that it represents a bit of a return to idealism in tech.
- Data is under hyped: it might sound crazy, but Chris says that the vast potential of data is still expanding and being discovered.
- Native Digitals vs. Native Analogs: the fact that people under 35 grew up with technology represents perhaps the largest change in the definition of what it means to be human, ever.
The Big Quote: “I don’t know why this isn’t being reported widely—in 2021 venture investors invested $15 billion into Web3 / blockchain.”
