The Floating World ( ukiyo-e (浮世絵))
The Floating World ( ukiyo-e (浮世絵)) was an expression of the new economy and social ambitions of the common townspeople of the Edo period (1615-1868). It was, specifically, a world of play and entertainment in Japan's three main cities (Edo [now called Tokyo], Osaka, and Kyoto). It could also be argued that this "world" was also a state of mind or an ethos, a characteristic spirit of the chônin ("persons of the town").
As builders gather in Osaka, we have the opportunity to bring together diverse communities and minds, to develop deeper perspectives about data, technology, economy and people and share learnings, experiences, expertise, and challenges to unfold the society we want to be part of.
Coordinated by Kelsie, Asuka, Anna & Mayato.
Hosted by Kindai (Kindai University) in Osaka.
UNDERSTANDING THE ATTRIBUTES OF WEB3
FOR ORGANISATIONS & RESEARCHERS:
To understand how to navigate system design decisions to benefit end-users
To identify areas where emerging technology may be able to improve outcomes, and better understand the tools available in the Web3 space and how they might be applied
For organisations actively designing or building solutions to leverage emerging technology to share what they’re working on
FOR TECHNOLOGISTS & PRODUCT MANAGERS:
Understand the problems that on-ground organisations are navigating, to create stronger feedback loops for problem-solution fit
For providers and organisations to identify potential next steps for further exploration of pilot/PoC/implementation
