I originally wrote this for a small community that I’m a part of. Every morning someone on the forum does a “Daily Roll Call” to share some words or thoughts or inspiration as well as to welcome new members.

I felt inspired this morning so I decided to drop a note to the community:

Hey all,

A small and short roll call today… mostly because I’m simply not feeling great, but, I wanted to take a moment to just let you all know how much I appreciate a small website like this.

I know, I know… odd to think about it “just” as a “website” but… it technically is “just a website”… but, of course, it’s much, much more than that, at least to me.

What it represents are powerful intangibles, things that I believe to be true and that will become even more true over time. Things and ideas like:

  1. Freedom
  2. Indepedence
  3. Autonomy
  4. Opportunity
  5. And much, much more…

Can a simple website do that? I think so. I really do think so. This naturally falls in line with the ideals around bitcoin and blockchain… these things are technology but what they represent is so much bigger, to me, to you, to all of us.

I can’t help but think that I’ve made one of the best decisions of my life when @peter and I started putting this thing together. That’s kind of cool to meditate on.

I hope you feel the same way, about your decision to not only join us here on The Pub but to also invest your time, resources, and money into this new and nascent decentralized world. If you and I can holdfast, we’ll be justly rewarded.

Have a great Sunday folks.
