Looking for an introduction to the Web3 philosophy and Polkadot specifically? My keynote from Blockchance 2023 is now online - https://twitter.com/Web3foundation/status/1694021280154984830

Interested in hearing me speak in person? I will be discussing Polkadot and some proposed upcoming changes at Swiss Web3Fest, 15 September in Zürich.
