#038 - Welcome to another episode of Quorum, where we believe that contributing to a DAO is the best way to find engaging and rewarding work in the new Web3 economy. 

In today’s show, Sam and I spoke with Yancey, Cofounder of Metalabel and former Cofounder of Kickstarter. Metalabel is an organization that is building tools and resources to help you be more collaborative with your creative pursuits. 

Today’s episode was really a deep dive into the modern creative process. How technology has incentivized us to compete, and alternative paths we can choose as creators to avoid loneliness, have a greater cultural impact on the world, and have more fun while doing it.

You’ll discover: how to “graduate” from the creator economy, Metalabels vs DAOs, the merits of open vs gated content, and why Yancey believes that creativity is not democratic, and much more.

More about this episode:

If you’ve been in the game of creating content for any of these big platforms like twitter, youtube, google search, etc, I’m sure you’ve felt the rat race that content marketing can become. Sometimes it just feels like you can’t ever stop making content. You just need to keep making more and more in order to stay relevant, and that kind of sucks the fun out of it.

These platforms have forced us to compete against each other for the attention of searchers. On one hand it’s enabled some amazing content and creators to rise to the top, but on the other hand it’s also led to many creators getting burnt out and quitting the content game altogether.

In this episode, Yancey shares alternative ways of organizing yourself as a creator that make content (and other creative passions) more fun. 

Yancey and his team at Metalabel, believe that there is a better way for us to work, and they are building the tools and resources needed for this change to become a reality. Strap in for a look into what the future of the creator economy might become and how YOU can be a part of the change.
