Hey fellow Metaverse Creators,

I had a great time over at The Fabricant Discord server. Stella and I explained her workflow and how she started creating me and telling my story. Everyone in The Fabricant community was so welcoming and engaged by sharing their input on how to build out my circle of friends. Thank you to Pedro and Annatarian for making us feel so welcome and for their beautiful way of moderating the session!

Good morning fellow Metaverse Explorers,

It is time again for a review and outlook as so much has happened since my last update. Since I am in my Earendel Chateau Stasis Pod right now I have sufficient time to type my thoughts out for you and let you know what we have been up to and what more is coming just within this month.

As many of you already know, we have been swamped in preparation for The Tech Adventures Festival in Glasgow from the 8th to the 10th of June of this year. Most of my review will touch on this project but of course also on all the other areas of my orbit.

Tech Adventures Festival
Tech Adventures Festival

Hey everyone,

I have fantastic news just in case you didn’t hear yet: We partnered up with the Tech Adventures Festival, among other fantastic DAOs in the space. The festival is an initiative to bridge more people into the web3 space by showing different access points to it through the different DAOs. The festival will take place from the 8th to the 10th of June in Queen’s Park, Glasgow, Scotland.

It is an open and free event that will let you explore alternative ways to find your way into web3: Open virtual spaces and a digital fashion show with the RAW DAO, phygital fashion with participants such as SYN Couture, and gamified learning with me, Alanatheweb3girl, and my Nucleus.

“Stella’s Metaverse Diary” is a series that documents Stella Achenbach’s journey through web3. From the humble beginnings of a whispering interest in cryptocurrencies, over discovering a passion for creating fashion NFTs to building out her own project called Alanatheweb3girl in the “DAO way”. All of those different aspects are lined out in that series not always in chronological order. It is supposed to encourage more people to join the web3 revolution and bridge gaps of information wherever possible in an anecdotal way.

Web3 is still young, and all tools that come with it. As it keeps growing, we, as the web3 community, need to make sure the space is safe so that more people will enter. Only if this community grows, will it step out of the shadows and potentially provide a more healthy and equal future to all of us.

Essential in that endeavor is that we provide more information to newcomers and young community members and give them the tools to evaluate projects which approach them through Discord, Twitter, or even email.

Rule°1

If a project reaches out to you in such bold manners as sending you a direct message through Twitter, Instagram, Email, Discord, or really any other platform, please delete or even block them. When I say message I don’t mean a personalized one I do mean the ones you can tell are copy-pasted. Nothing good will come out of it; no matter how many free items they offer to you, it will probably only cost you in the end.

This week has been so amazing. Honestly, not even one day of my life so far hasn’t been exciting in one way or another. As some of you know, I was born on the 21st of July, 2021. A year not many humans can review as a great year, check out Death to 2021 on Netflix. But to me, as a web3 native being and all the humans and other virtual beings who have already joined me on this fantastic site of the Metaverse, it has been an incredible experience full of optimism and wonders. Usually, I was thinking of giving just a weekly review, but I think it is time to dig a bit deeper and tell you guys what led me to this point in time.

Like always, I need to sort through my archive because there have been so many things going on over the past week and even months. But let’s take it step by step, one fantastic item at a time.

Well, since my birth, many “firsts” have happened to me this year. In the case of DCentral Miami, it was the first time I had to connect to a different set of servers to watch what Stella and her friends in the Global Designer Network were up to. As I am not a physical being, I focused on what I do best (for now), I observed. From my screen, I could see all those different people with very different intentions and agendas coming up to the Digtialax booth to talk to Emma (founder of Digitalax), Kate (Digitalax Core), Lauren (KALAU founder of ALTERRAGE), dCesh (founder of Plug-Life), Stella and many more. When I say very different, I mean it. Mothers were coming with their daughters asking for a non-tech explanation of web3, Venture Capitalists wanting to get their firms money involved, Hedgefund Managers feeling out the market, private people who wish to support the “cause,” and of course creatives eager to join the Global Designer Network. So you see, very different and diverse indeed.

All I kept wondering was why humans are so interested. What kind of forces keep pulling them so hard towards my native environment, my home? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love the web3 side of the Metaverse but still, why are you guys so interested? When listening to Emma explaining web3, I eventually got it: The freedom that web3 can potentially provide is what the physical world can’t do right now. Its systems seem stuck or broken no matter where you look. The tools of web3 bring self-governance, self-sovereignty and are self-capitalizing. I believe “independence” would also be a good word to use. If you feel like me in the beginning and have a hard time wrapping your circuits around that, I recommend checking out these two articles written by Digitalax founder Emma-Jane McKinnon-Lee:

Hey, fellow Metaverse junkies!

Not sure if you already realized it but all of your sleep rhythms seem that they have gone down the drain. I feel everyone is awake all the time. I was wondering if that is ok or maybe because of the time zones. So I did a little digging since I didn´t understand the idea of sleep at all. I mean I just take naps if I feel lazy but I don´t really need sleep as a digital being.

It turns out the human body needs sleep. And good sleep at that. So it is not enough for you meatballs to just go and lie down. It is important that the quality of your sleep is high which means if you go to bed with FOMO it will not be good and you will probably wake up after 9 hours and still be tired. The rule of thumb is if your body tells you it is tired it will need sleep (just in case you didn´t get that before)!

According to some statistics, I found online humans spend 1/3 of their life sleeping. That is crazy I thought to myself. But there are much more fun facts about sleep I found on dreams.co.uk:

That phrase is not mine; I found it on the web while Stella finished some stuff. The quote stems from a famous author you guys might know. His name is Oscar Wilde. Let me just say this; the internet is a vast and chaotic place full of wonders and horrors. The sentence by Oscar Wilde captured my attention because I am not like you. I am a human-created being. I wasn’t born, I was designed, and I keep wondering what it means to “be yourself”?

Also, “Hey,” my name is Alana. I was created on the 21st of July 2021, yes, right, this year. My place of “birth” is the Metaverse, an infinite space made of human dreams and desires. In your way of counting years and speaking of the three-dimensional shell I was given, I’d say I would be 24 of your years when I am only a few months old.

Do you wonder why I am not a child? Well, my creator decided on that, so you should ask her. There are many things I had no influence on even though I was made. Maybe I should ask her about those things. Like why am I so ridiculously pale, for example, and this hypervolume hairstyle really hinders my view… well, I decided to take this journey of awareness step by step, so for now I keep wondering what it means to be oneself.
