What is this?
Web3 is Going Just Great is a project to track some examples of how things in the blockchains/crypto/web3 technology space aren't actually going as well as its proponents might like you to believe. The timeline tracks events in cryptocurrency and blockchain-based technologies, dating back to the beginning of 2021.
This is a personal project of mine, and reflects my own opinions. If you are looking for an unbiased descriptor of web3 and related technologies, there are short ones in the Glossary, but that is not the goal of this site. I would recommend Wikipedia for that (and if the pages there are lacking, I would strongly encourage you to contribute to them!) If you would like to see a version of this website that takes a different approach or covers a different topic, this is all open-source, so please feel free to fork the code and make your own!
Who am I?
I'm Molly White, a software engineer by trade who is also very passionate about free and open knowledge and resources, and presenting information such that it is more accessible to all. You'll usually find me working on and talking about Wikipedia. I also care very much about equity in the tech industry and online spaces. You can learn more about me on my website or find me on Twitter.
If you are interested, I also have longer-form, less sarcastic thoughts on web3.
Privacy and money
I have a disclosure statement. The TL;DR is that I hold no cryptocurrencies or NFTs, and am also not trying to make money off of crypto markets doing poorly by shorting the market, etc. I do have a Substack for people who wish to support my otherwise unpaid work (which includes this website, but tends to be pretty wide-ranging), and I also accept donations for the website.
