An alien visits earth. He sees our cities, our governments, our moral codes. He's curious, "What's are you trying to do here?" he asks the humans. 

The humans respond: "We're trying to get coordinated".

Coordination is how humanity rose above the animals. Built the pyramids. Put a man on the moon.

We've coordinated as hunter-gather societies in tribes. As agrarian societies in kingdoms. As industrial societies in nation states.

And information societies in digital nations like Ethereum and Bitcoin. This. Changes. Everything. 


    • Uh...why are we here? What's the point?
    • A nation is more than a nation state!
    • The thing that makes humans special
    • Getting past Dunbar's number
    • The rise & limits of nation states
    • The next evolution of the nation
    • How you become a citizen of Ethereum
