S3 Ep. 1 Aron Fischer and Jack du Rose – Colony: distributed organizations that actually work

In this first episode of Season 3, we talk to Jack du Rose and Aron Fischer from Colony.io — an infrastructure for internet native companies and a key player in the evolution of Decentralised Autonomous Organisations (DAOs). 

 

Jack du Rose is a former jeweller, current blockchain nerd, and founder of Colony. He is excited by the power shift our decentralized future brings. When not making $100m diamond skulls, or paradigm shifting social platforms, Jack enjoys sesquipedalianism, bathos, and a nice cup of tea and a sit down.

 

Aron Fischer graduated with a PhD in Mathematics in 2015. Since then he has been researching the computer science aspects of programming in a blockchain environment. He is fascinated by the interplay of mathematics, economics, technology, and human nature that is inherent in systems. He has worked for the Ethereum Foundation and the Swarm team, and is a co-author of the Colony whitepaper. He continues to be involved with DAOs in general and the Colony project in particular.

  Key highlights:
  • Organizing is about distributing budget through reputation.
  • Time-based self-executing makes organizations have more bias towards action. 
  • New priorities: affordances make (human) capability building possible.
  • Contribution accounting and making “reputation as currencies”.
  • DAOs modules (decision making, consensus, and execution).
  • Entrepreneurial work can’t be commoditized.
  • Network effects lie in connecting practitioners.
