Four For Friday | March 3, 2023
LF27 | Five types of Impact DAOs, tech for lonely seniors, Japan's meta metaverse push, and fixing US healthcare by removing doctors.
Welcome to a Looking Forward’s Four For Friday. Four links that have piqued my interest this week relating to Web3, healthy longevity and / or impact. Enjoy.
Five types of Impact DAOs
Here are five types of ‘impact DAOs’ - decentralized autonomous organizations ‘whose core purpose is to do good for people and the planet’. It categorizes them into: Enablers, Climate, Social Impact, DeSci and NetworkState.
Earth4All - a new environmental collaborative
Earth4All aims save the planet. A stellar cast of advisors sits on the ‘The 21st Century Transformational Economics Commission’ to advise about a new set of scenarios for the world, building on the Club of Rome’s initial 1972 report, Limits to Growth.
Japanese giants creating a ‘metaverse economic zone’
Mitsubishi, Fujitsu, Misuho Bank, SOMPO and others are teaming up to create a new ecobnomic zome to support infrastructure for a Web3 / metaverse push by Japan. Fascinating, gutsy move here by those execs, that shows a level of commitment and also collaboration.
Fixing US healthcare requires doctors taking a back seat
This thoughtful piece in STAT makes a convincing case that there are too many doctors in population health - an area that needs less diagnostic skill and bedside manner, and more systems change leadership and policy expertise.
That’s all for this week. As always, feedback welcome. Feel free to share insights or links of interest.
