Upcycle Moloch! Conversation with Rieki Cordon from SEEDS

Rieki is the co-founder of the SEEDS project which is a community dedicated to the regeneration of the biosphere by means of coordination through Web3 tools (and Web2, there is a Discord and Telegram too).

We go into where SEEDS is at now as a project and the new regenerative villages initiative and its implications, communities vs economies, work vs inspiration, and so on.

Thanks to Rieki for a very interesting conversation! Hopefully we can do another one soon and I will link up my decent camera and mic rather than using the built-in ones on my old Thinkpad.
