As far as I know, GPT-4 did not write the following, but that assumes GTP-4 is not writing my thoughts. Anyways, let’s get into it.
Backdrop does IRL round 2 in NYC
Conferences are a great way to make a connection that can lead to something amazing, and they’re also a great way to lose a bunch of time and money — scarce resources for builders! Last month we ran a small experiment for Denver to facilitate valuable connections between builders, and we got lots of warm fuzzies hearing of so many jams and collaborations between Backdrop builders as a result.
So we’re running it back for NFT NYC, still lightweight and fun but with some specific improvements:
If you’re attending, you can just like this roll-call post and we’ll make sure you stay up to date with all of the opportunities that get created.
If you’re looking for resources, we’ll collect them in this post. Comment with any resources you come across, or request something you’re looking for and we’ll get on it.
Comment on this post with a connection you’d love to make in Denver — an investor who cares about art, a mentor for your DeSci project, another builder working on wallets, etc. It’ll help others find you and we’ll also be doing some matchmaking via our Backdrop super connectors :)
You can see these and all of the NFT NYC opportunities as they get created here. And if you know a great builder that’s headed to NYC, send them this email or invite them and collect some more Gems along the way.
Seed Club | Metalabel | Foster collab
Not an easy task, but we’ve been tapped as one of the communities to help make Metalabel’s next “Quality Drop” even better than the one they just did with Vitalik. The focus of this one is Creative Collaboration —how the expanded artistic collaboration blockchain tech might actually look and feel. You can read more or submit an idea here. I’m also happy to work with anyone that wants to leverage Backdrop for an experiment that will go into the zine.
Know someone that might want to join one of the leading communities in DeSci? Boris from LabDAO is hiring a senior DevOps engineer. View post

To see all recent posts go to backdrop.so/posts and sort by “recent.”
Work is multiplayer, and as another step towards the Open Work Graph, you can now add teammates to your work experience on Backdrop.
You can now see who recently joined on the side of the home page. Lotta great people, amirite?
Thanks for continuing to help us build a work graph that doesn’t use data to hold its members hostage :)
