Not Your Old Man's Web
"The Metaweb book presents a creative argument that warrants further discussion and exploration."

The Next Level of the Internet
(To be published by Taylor & Francis Oct. 9, 2023 )
Buckle up for a fascinating journey through layers of insight and metaphors that explain the past, present, and future of the Web.
Readers from all walks of life will learn something ancient, something novel, and something practical. Those who give it careful consideration will never see the Web the same way again.
The book “The Metaweb: The Next Level of the Internet” proclaims the existence of decentralized public space above the webpage, which enables the shift from personal to collective computing. The Web’s next frontier is the Metaweb, a hyper- dimensional web over Today’s Web that connects people and information silos, with accountability and fair value exchange.
The Metaweb can drastically reduce false information, abuse, and scams, as well as enable the unprecedented level of collaboration needed to address humanity’s global challenges.
The book posits a symbiotic relationship between AI and the Metaweb, where AI assists in generating, organizing, and curating content, while the Metaweb provides the necessary constraints, data, and context for AI to function effectively, transparently, and in alignment with humanity.
Safe AI-enhanced collaboration among humans on the Metaweb will enable a vast collective intelligence and the capture of tremendous untapped value.

Unlocking the Power of Bitcoin
A groundbreaking development emerged during the final stages of crafting the Metaweb book: Ordinal Theory on Bitcoin. This innovation enables information to be etched onto Bitcoin's smallest units, satoshis. Bitcoin, renowned for its security and decentralization, now offers the ability for each satoshi to store data indefinitely, immune to centralization or censorship. We see Bitcoin Ordinals playing a pivotal role in decentralized identity, addressing, and data storage. While the Metaweb embraces a multi-chain approach, Bitcoin will be its core. This opens doors to universal handles, fair token mints and air drops, and onchain digital artifacts, accessible with an Ordinals Wallet.
