I’m Sid / sidcode / Siddhant. My name means principles / tenets. That is probably why I was naturally drawn to the Kernel syllabus ;) Soon after my block wrapped up for me as a Fellow, I was asked if I wanted to be a Steward. I accepted this gift of a responsibility to best map out this unparalleled community of care that is building the heart of our interdependent web.

This post is an attempt at mapping my meaningful meanders.

Web3 journey so far:

Tech / (Computer) Science:

Economics, Policy:

Community (local):

Community (international)





All the social networks which I’m gradually giving up on before they give themselves up. Once bitten, twice shy. Looking at you, G+

Thanks for reading! If you’ve read this far, ping me and I’ll send you a POAP ;) Fin

The Meme museum aims to help fix this by celebrating great memes and great meme artists by curating memes, displaying them, telling stories about them, and making it easy for anyone to visit the digital museum, and share them to help push forward the spirit of GitcoinDAO.

Memepalooza participants also seemed hyped about this, but that is a biased audience 😂

The problem we faced: memes get lost and underappreciated in the discord UX. They should be out in the open and not in some walled garden.

Solution - a web3 museum of memes where the best memes and memelords get appreciated with votes and tips
