What Is Web5

Good question.

Putting aside Molly White’s tweet from a few weeks ago, though she does raise a very good point …

I did want to share a podcast I just listened to It’s Mike Brock of Block (seriously, filed in the ‘can’t make this up’ bucket) - and no I don’t think he is Dave Brock’s son talking with Tech Dirt’s Michael Masnick.

“Web5 is a new evolution of the Web that enables decentralized apps and protocols.”

Count me in the camp (though I am still with Molly) that this makes far more sense that anything I have heard describing the Web3 world - except isn’t that how they described Web3?

Well yes - but that isn’t what is going on. Of course whether Mike et al can make it happen remains to be seen - but at least when he talks he makes sense - and also clearly separates himswlf from the ’get rich quick / stay rich libertarian world that we keep reading about.
