I’m kind of mind blown at how this week has gone, honestly. First, the MTAVerse NFT project launched and @whizwang blessed me with the 161st street - Yankee Stadium stop to onboard me into the NFT space. I was blown away by that generosity.

If that project were to get big, that would probably be one of the more valuable ones. I asked how much she wanted to sell it for in the DM and she just…gave it to me!

It doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it was to me. We didn’t even follow each other before I asked, so she was just trusting that I wasn’t someone just trying to scheme a free NFT.

I am a ginormous Yankees fan who has gone into that station several times for games. I truly don’t think there is a price I’d ever sell that for. I won’t get into details, but they have gone the way of the Olive Garden and Waffle House, so I am actually kind of excited to see how that unfolds lol

As someone whose educational background is in Communication Studies, I am fascinated by the DAO as an organizational structure.

I look at DAOs through two primary lenses: organizational communications and industrial-organizational psychology.

Organizational communications encompasses the how and why behind the internal and external communication members of an organization use to achieve organizational objectives.

Organizational psychology is the scientific study of human behaviors in within organizations and the workplace.

What started with a 2-week free trial to Ancestry.com out of curiosity turned into a book idea designed to help me re-connect with my roots.

I have found out so many fascinating things so far, many of which I have Tweeted about, but which I won’t write about here. I just wanted to share the central thesis with as little set-up as possible. Let me know what you think!

The Americanization process for Southern Italians was more akin to cult indoctrination than a benevolent example of cultural diffusion. The “cult” in this case is the cult of whiteness.

“White” is a societal construct created purely as a tool of subjugation. To say it is an archaic relic of the past would be an understatement.
