The #Web3Weekly newsletter is a personal project by Peter A. McKay, launched in 2017. In its early iteration, the newsletter was sometimes published on an occasional basis, under slightly different titles. Since fall 2019, it has run continuously as #Web3Weekly.
#Web3Weekly covers the movement toward a more decentralized internet, sometimes referred to as "Web 3.0." In doing so, we define decentralization broadly and try to make the topic accessible to both geeks and non-geeks alike.
In his day job, Peter serves as Head of Content & Writer Development at Capsule Social, which builds innovative tools to enable decentralized discourse. His past work in the blockchain space includes contributing to two whitepapers for the World Economic forum and marketing for several organizations creating Layer-1 blockchains.
Previously, Peter was co-founder and chief product officer of a startup focused on local news video. He also spent 11 years as a markets reporter at the Wall Street Journal, covering the historic crash of 2008, the 9/11 attacks adjacent to the newspaper's offices, and other major global events.
