Christie's Art+Tech Summit 2022

Published on July 19th, 2022

It's been three years since I've traveled on a plane (thank you, global pandemic). I'm excited to say that it's back to normal. My flight from Oklahoma to NYC through Dallas was largely uneventful and packed. Travel in America is back!

I'll be speaking at a panel today at Christie's in NYC at their annual Art+Tech summit. This is a neat treat for me. I've been in the web3/crypto space for about six months but haven't had the chance to present in the way I used to during my years in the Drupal community.

The topic will be on web3 standards specific to the NFT space. This sector has exploded in the last two years. Part of that explosion has been rapid exploration, innovation, and pushing the boundaries of what these new primitives can do. This is exciting! However, it's also challenging for developers attempting to build products and apps against a moving target. This, in turn, creates a lot of friction for end-users because they can't always use what they've collected across all apps.

In short, we are seeing the need for some standards and best practices to be introduced. Similar to how websites evolved from simple documents to the front-end of full-blown platforms like Twitter and Facebook, NFTs may have a similar trajectory and evolution.

My talk will be on a panel including folks at Adobe, Meta, and a few others web3 startups. I'm excited. If a video recording becomes available, I'll post it here.
