Balaji Srinivasan is an investor, founder, and Former CTO of Coinbase and GP at a16z

and author of The Network State, which will be the main focus of the podcast today.

The Network State explores ideas surrounding digital communities and the future of how we coordinate as a species. A startup society fosters the emergence of network unions, which evolve into a network archipelago—eventually calcifying into the network state.

As we muse about the fate of human systems, we explore mental models for understanding the digital revolution and how we can allow coordination to thrive.
