Dig for Victory
"To get to today's urban gardens, let's go back in time to the founding of the US, there were certainly major cities Philadelphia New York Boston, but it wasn't. Until the eighteen hundreds that more and more people move to cities and urban ization in the US really got underway. These are people who would have grown almost all their own food before, but now they live in a city. They can buy food at the market. So how many of them kept up gardening in their new urban homes? A lot of food production went on. On within city boundaries well through the start of the twentieth century, there were lots and lots of urban livestock, because people were raising pigs and cows and chicken for food within city limits anesthesia day as a historian at the University of Delaware, and she's working on a PhD about Victory Gardens. It's only really during the city, Beautiful Movement and the progressive era that city start passing ordinances that actually outlawed these forms of local food production in the name of cleanliness and sanitation and middle-class standards of respectability, because only poor people grow their. Their own food. The city beautiful movement was big deal during the eighteen nineteen in one thousand, nine hundred wealthy urbanites, all this rural migration and immigration, and of course, the rising inequality and poverty and tenements in their cities, and they were not happy. They tried to clean the city up. They built big boulevards and parks with monumental fountains, and eventually they also introduced strict zoning laws and chickens and vegetable patches were not part of these new beautiful cities urban agriculture. Something poor people needed. It had to go some cities overtime had already. Already banned maybe the animals in the streets, or even keeping certain animals within city limits, but this really solidified during the city, beautiful movement city started to enact ordinances that said no farm animals in the city at all and no front yard vegetables, either meanwhile the poor had more pressing concerns than how the city looked frequently, when bad harvests and economic fluctuations raised food prices, they could not get to eat. There were dozens of major food riots in American cities throughout the eighteen hundreds. The first urban gardening movement starts in eighteen ninety. Ninety three in the town of Detroit, because of this panic of eighteen, ninety three, there were lots of panics. In those days, the stock market was very new, very volatile and long story short, suddenly, basically overnight, forty three percent of detroiters are unemployed in what had been a booming city and the Mayor Hazel S Pingree I has to find some way to answer. The cries of his constituents. So what he does is, he starts the first urban farming movement, which is ironically happening at the same time that many productive activities within the. The city are being outlawed. In other cities, urban leaders didn't want farms in their cities, but they also didn't want riots, and so letting poor people groza food on vacant land was seen as an acceptable temporary band aid in times of shortages. The Detroit plan was called the potato, patch plan and it had pretty impressive results by eighteen, ninety, six seventeen hundred families were farming more than four hundred acres in the city, and there are letters there from local detroiters writing into mayor Pingree, saying you so much I was able to grow. Grow Food for my family and lots of the people that wrote in. It's heartbreaking, because these letters are hardly legible there in broken English. Many of them were recent, German and Polish immigrants who were taking advantage of this program to grow foods dot connected them to their home as well as to feed their families. The Potato Patch program was seen as a success, but it was never meant to be permanent in less than a decade when economic situation in Detroit started to improve urban farms kind of petered out until the next big. Big Crisis, which was World War, one, the city beautiful movement had stamped out urban gardening the Detroit potato patches were gone, but suddenly there was a huge need both for food, and for kind of coming together in a patriotic sense. At least that's how Charles lay through peck sought. He was a lumber baron from New Jersey and early on in the days of the European conflict. He wrote the US government and said people should be reason. Food would help them contribute to the war help stock shortages, and the USDA promptly said Sir. We've got better ideas going here for better uses of fertilizer and seed supplies so thanks for your input and no thanks Charles hadn't made his fortune by taking no for an answer, so he took that Fortuna and started a Liberty Garden Movement himself, and he quickly found a whole group of rich people who wanted to join him in getting Americans. Gardening again to support the war Charles and his friends created a movement. There were Liberty Gardens. Gardens on Boston Common, and in Union Square in New York and big corporations like Eastman Kodak and General Electric set aside land at their factories for employees to grow and boy scouts even had a garden at Grover Cleveland's Childhood Home in New Jersey. Even the government caught the Liberty Garden fever, and they created a school program to teach budding young home farmers how to grow food and support. The soldiers was actually one of the first nationally. Nationally promoted curricula in the country, the Liberty Garden Movement seemed to really catch the public imagination. However, there was no infrastructure for collecting numbers. The only source we have is Charles Lathrop pack himself wrote a book called the war garden victorious in one, thousand, nine, hundred nineteen, and he claims that the movements sponsored five million gardens which time when there were just over six million actual professional farmers in the US is kind of impressive but remember. Remember Charles is our only source for this number and he might have been biased. It's really incredibly hard to say, but despite its holds on the national imagination, it had nowhere near the impact of world. War Two Gardens in terms at share mount of produce ground, sheer numbers of people participating sheer difference it made in the global war effort, and that's probably why you listeners at least in the US you don't use the Term Liberty Garden. Gardens you probably say victory garden.

"Forgetting are we always. Oh yeah and so. What is selection next criteria? What do you look for in chain projects? We tend to have fairly specific ideas around things so we invested in Iran. Because you know we were looking for a proof of stake system and one. That would have fast finality. And one that would we believe maintain a high degree of decentralisation over time so we tend to have very specific things that we look for are we. We had been looking for this idea of permanent storage again. We think that's kind of almost integral building block. We invested in blocks dock because we have been thinking a lot about identity and end user self separate identity so our approach tends to be to have specific ideas We often right and talk about those ideas and then find projects that are a match to those clips. You'll invest in crypto funds. Which I found unusual so you invested in Public Jane Mattis David Keenan Place. Ota So what? Why do you choose to do that? Well we did that at a time when in custody really was an unsolved problem. And we didn't want to develop a lot of custody capabilities at Union Square ventures ourselves. It was also at a time. When it was very hard there was a lot of explosive innovation and it would have been very difficult for us to get on top of many projects as we were able with this more. Decentralized more networked approach. I don't anticipate that. We will invest in more funds. Going forward I mean never say never but it's now that custody is becoming a essentially easy for somebody like us where we can use base custody and we don't need to sell custody. I think it'll become a lot easier for us to invest directly in token projects. Not Need to worry about. How we're GONNA take care of those tokens so one final question here when you look at the crypto space and people building startups descends fast networks. You know what's the thing that people tend to really miss or CD wrong way or you wish they would maybe paid more attention or pro. Shiftily I don't know that there's any one thing I do think were very much in the early stages of this you know I do think that When we are the early stages of something that's often a tendency for of literal translation. And it's like I had this thing in the pre blockchain world have exactly this thing in the blockchain world as opposed to thinking okay. What problem that this thing? And what's the native new way of solving this and also what is this of native new set of capabilities? And what are the new things? I wasn't able to build at all in the old world that it can build with so I think it's early days. I think there's a lot of promising stuff happening. And as far as inscribe ventures is concerned. I do think we are going to shift our attention more to find things that are at the application layer blockchain. I think our infrastructure portfolio is pretty raw and pretty full at this point so I think it's an exciting time for people who WanNa work application of blockchain I think infrastructure really is feels like it's coming into place. I should say that when the dust settles I don't think there's going to be a lot of foundational chains so I think there's going to be a big shake-out this lots of people trying to build foundational changed and I think that there will be a ton of foundational chains on. They'll be more than one but I think they'll be fewer than a dozen. What do you think will be the winners while we've made some investments accordingly? Talk to me again in like five years. Okay cool well Albert. Thanks for coming on. Who is a huge pleasure to speak with you? I really enjoyed the conversation. Thank you thank you Brian. Thank you for joining.

"And I know that's very much an outlier opinion by the way. One of the thing about Yuval Harari piece at the end the whole pieces about how we have to come together as humanity and fight this as one from the guy who wrote an entire book basically saying how all narratives are equally valid and trashing humanist. What what a hack. He's A. He's a hack who writes incredibly. Welt them Great turns of phrase very smooth riding but ideas are basically third rate inconsistent ideas. Yeah I've already tweeted. Do you think fundamental difference between different kinds of privacy? So basically say I like most people don't own an invisibility cloak. So basically when I go out my neighbors can see that. I go out when grocery shopping across the street the cashiers at the grocery shop. They know what they usually by and they know my name and they know my kids names. And that's not the sort of privacy that I'm worried about the sort of privacy that I think also many other people our about is the one that creates an enormous difference in power so basically say if the state knows everything about your life Google twitter or facebook knows everything about you. He become incredibly easy to manipulate humans. Prey simply beings basically. Even if I just know like twenty things about you I can probably come up with buttons that I would have to push in order to actually get. You are in yourself in a certain way right and do you think that's not a danger. No I absolutely. That's a danger everything. I'm writing about how to shift more power back to the individual it's all about. We want to take power away from government. I talked about smaller government earlier. We want to take power away from large corporations. We want to give power back to individuals we want to give that power back to individuals and the communities made up of those individuals economic freedom informational freedom. Psychological freedom are all about empowering the individual so I think that's absolutely crucial. It just turns out that actually privacy in many ways right now if anything is being used to deeply enshrine and deeply ingrained and solidified the existing power imbalance. So what are we doing in the name of privacy in the name of privacy for example Apple says you install any software on the device has to go through the apple store? That's how we make sure you stay private. So we're using privacy and then we're putting secure elements on all these phones. Nobody knows what goes on inside secure limit each have to trust it. Of course we're using all those secure elements to make sure that I can't program iphone so we actually making it harder rather than easier to modify the code. That's running on a phone or to inspect it or to see what it's doing so let me give you the example face recognition cameras. Do we really WANNA go down the path where we regulate what I can do with my camera on my phone what I can do with cameras that I deploy. It's only going to ingrain the power of the state more deeply. Yes the state can deploy surveillance cameras but we can also deploy this comers this whole concept of surveillance and transparency. I think that obviously we need to work extremely hard on preserving restoring democracy democratic processes. We've already given the government way too much power but much of what's being done in the name of privacy today has detrimental effects wooded GDP GDP are made facebook and Google more powerful. It consolidated power. We predicted this. Lots of people predicted this. It's exactly how it happened. The California Privacy Act is GonNa do the same thing when you see the large players not protesting something. You should wonder why they don't protest it because they know it is good for them if they didn't think it was good for them they would protest it in the. Us We pass. This terrible law called foster used trafficking. Which WHO's GONNA save only against trafficking against measuring? I mean trafficking terrible. So who would say something? Use that to blow a hole into section two thirty. Everybody predicted that it would hit a lot of people who need access to information online. That has gone away as predicted again. Facebook did not protest why facebook nude would be able to comply so angry going exactly the wrong direction. Why are the big companies? Not Worried about antitrust law because they realize that it's going to be some milk toast antitrust decree and they'll be just fine if we said. Hey facebook you gotta have an API FOR EVERYBODY. You Bet they would protest severely constrain their power. Yeah and yes. Does it. Create a privacy problem wind. Look at it they said. Oh the reason we can't have the AP is because it creates a privacy from so what we're doing right now it's like it's the perfect example of the path to hell is paved with good intentions. I one hundred twenty percent believe that the people who are fighting for privacy have good intentions. The net outcome so far has been the consolidation of power in the hands of facebook. Google and the hands of the government for that matter. Okay cool so we're GONNA go to sort of a last topic which comes a little bit back to the larger question of where technology is going and role of capital so your venture capitalist and you're the book about the world after capitalism which of course slightly ironic though the world after capital not after cap after capital after capital. Yeah so first of all. How does this kind of that? You have and thinking about where the future's going. How does that inform your approach to investing in companies today a lot of the things that we have invested in Union Square Ventures? Are Things that I believe Help move us. Towards the knowledge age one aspect of the knowledge late age described early as the knowledge loop is where you can learn things create things share things. We've invested in a lot of things that make learning easier. For example do Lingo Code. Kademi go share quiz. Let schering we've invested a lot of things that make sharing easier. Twitter does make sharing easier than ever before creating invested in a number of tools that let people create new things and like splice is a very good example of that you can create new music. Download sounds instruments and creating music so. I believe a lot of the things that we have. Invested will continue to invest in R. Thinks that will help. Move us to the knowledge. It's very important. Just like agriculture food didn't go away innovation and capital and building new things and needing to find. None of those things are GONNA go way. I'm looking for world where those things are. Take up less of our attention than they today. But I'm not looking for a world with us. Go Away. Once you've transitioned into knowledge age. What's let's see job in? My drop can still be around finding people who need to raise money to finance some things that otherwise wouldn't exist and that. I believe when it does exist will be a good thing for the world. I don't think my job is trade. I'm very lucky that way. So Union Square ventures invested in a number blockchain project. So you appre early to to the space. Oh you invested in Labs STABS AT grand. I leave boxy numerous and probably also others. I'm.

"And with that. Here's our interview with Albert Winger Dave although winger who's a partner at Union square ventures very well known venture capital fund in New York. Alba's written a wonderful book called World. After capital that we're GONNA speak about today. A lot of the ideas of super timely in a lot of the kind of economic and Global Change Pandemic Debbie going through at the moment so. Thanks so much for joining us today. I would be here first of all here a little bit about your background. So many people will be familiar with Union Square wrenches. Like what did you do before? And how did he ended up becoming a venture capitalist? I always like to say. It became a V. C. Because I was a bad operator and people think I'm joking but it's entirely true. I started a company while I was getting my PhD to Mit has started a company because this whole web thing was exploding and I was working on my dissertation and I was like. Oh my God this is like only three people ever who will read this? That's my three ceases advisors and maybe that's even questionable. What am I doing and so I started a company late? Ninety six early ninety seven in healthcare space ultimately got it. Funded recruited a management team and so forth. That seemed to be going really well for a while but I realized enduring it that I was not really cut out to be an operator but I thought startups were a really amazing aspect of capitalism. That you could go start something that people would give you money for it and so it's like well the other way. I could maybe be involved with us. That might be a better fit for. My personality is to be a venture investor and from that realization which I sort of had in ninety eight. It took me basically ten years to actually be a GP at Union Square ventures and I don't want to bore you with the details of that but it's a fairly circuitous route. That involved starting my own fond unsuccessfully trying to start another fund also unsuccessfully and doing something else in between also successfully and eventually doing something successful which was delicious with Joshua Schachter and then joining Union square ventures. I think that's super interesting. So that happened in the mid noughties and you've been a managing partner since but as our business would note. This was way before blockchain actually much so you did web to investing to start off with when blockchain country attention to what you find out about it because Square inches was one of the fest feces that actually start investing in the space. I'm trying to recall exactly who I pointed me in the right direction and actually think it may have been Novel who I've known through Angel List with talked about On for years and a wound up becoming personal investor in biology's crypto mining. Start up so that was fairly early days and it took me a while to really wrap my head around it but I I think relatively early on the conceptualization that I came to I think also we union square ventures to really develop. Was this idea that if you think of a two by two where on one axis you have wither Control a centralized decentralized in on the other access you have weather data is consistent or inconsistent in this two by two Matrix was one basically quadrant. Which is the decentralized control consistent data quadrant that simply didn't exist there was no solution for it until the Whitepaper came along with bitcoin paper. And so that is how we think of the fundamental breakthrough that blockchain represents is decentralized control and yet consistent data. I think we realized relatively early on that that was fundamental breaks. It doesn't matter what you consensus protocol as like some consensus protocol. That achieves that on that is a breakthrough and so we wrote early on about Bitcoin. As Protocol as opposed to just bitcoin is money and I think we've stayed fascinated with it since We WanNa being quite fortunate to invest early on. We let the series day according base. I believe that was in two thousand twelve or maybe thirteen to us. It's a fundamental innovation. It's advancing knowledge that let's do something that we previously weren't able to do now raises lots and lots of questions about what exactly we're going to do with that which we can maybe get into later. But it's sort of an ability to do something I think of these abilities like heavier than air. Flight is is a great example. We couldn't do it couldn't do it couldn't do it. And then something we could do it similarly here. It's not that people hadn't been thinking about decentralized consistent data but we couldn't do it it was wins a tour. She put these different pieces. The hashing in the public key. Cryptography in fourth together in just the right kind of way that all of a sudden we were able to do it. Yeah we definitely WANNA get back can revisit. The trip the topic towards the end after. He's spoken a little bit about your book. World after capital Seabrook is available online Show of course anybody can read it for free. It's also sort of a work in progress. Nothing kind of a collaborative product is little bit. How did you decide to write this book? What was the motivation behind it? So it started probably at this point five. Plus years ago when I started sort of giving talks about how digital technology is different and I had the sense.

"No legislator that was going to be the person that was say, shutdown Texas football in the name of pain or something like that. Nobody will put their name on California a little bit different though. Right. And this looks like this can pass through. And then if that happens this double-leg has no choice but to say what they're saying right now because otherwise their whole model falls apart. Are they really going to take the most populated state in the country? The linchpin of what are your five major conferences, and say y'all outta here the most populated state in the country be biggest economy in the country by far they would be fifth in the world in terms of economic size. If they were to go sec-. Weed California is better suited than any other state to say we could just do this on our own like we can organize our own tournaments. You could organize our own playoff could organize all sorts of events in which our players get to get paid. And they get the profit, and that to me, it is an existential threat to the NC, double A, because they would get lots of players that are great. They would also actually defy the entire concept of what the NCAA's about the problem with your idea there these tournaments who's playing all the schools in California. How many of those do you give a damn about their four schools in California that are in the Pac tin? Right. And then you start lumping twelve rather, you start lump it in, like the mountain west conferences, and stuff like that. Okay, cool. Is that something that people are actually going to want to watch, my guess is? No. So that is a fair. Guess, but my bet is that if you can actually create a compelling alternative right, in which maybe cut out the middleman of ended up does what they organize stuff and provide clearing houses for like academic credibility. If you don't need. That maybe other states would actually join California in closing. Well, you've been away from New York City these last couple of days. And so I wanted to show you what you actually just. I. This is union square at union square this ain't even know this is fourteenth street. Brian went hers out here fighting somebody. I oh. I believe Filipino Brian win hearts to you because I've been zooming in on him. He does seem to have feeling go hard. Oh, buddy from optics. It's not really doing the work that I thought he might. But this does resemble be Mayweather Pacquiao that I truly dreamed up because this do oh, hold on. The seven slammer is a lot better shape than I expected him to be vascular workout there. And normally I would say, always bet on the guy wearing blue jeans athletic competition, because that guy scenes things. But Mr. buttoned-down salmon short sleeved shirt, he clearly is brought more to the table that I thought I'm also kind of looking out here at this proud a little difficult for me to tell back here but I feel like I know yeah, yeah. In fact, I wouldn't be watching that in that crowd myself. And meanwhile, the cops are just like, Yup. Nothing to sit here. Go ahead. I don't know who they rooted for. But I know who they ruined against. In closing out here for adult, the youth on the basketball courts, come all Marcus smart. This is just crew. I'm guessing a basketball camp of some sort. Maybe this kid was like now than all between gotta do. All right. Disappoint right here. Why not? Go is celebrate with the other just feel. So what Siri and yet very unbranded, if you seem to attend Marcus, Smart's, basketball camp like this does feel like what Marcus smart wanna do to you.

"Achievement. Do you have a knife at home? Do you use a knife at home? I have a knife faith things that the Pila can't do hardly anything for opening hands. Maybe. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. So you learn to sell that peeler in that way from your father Joseph, right? Who really has an amazing story. He's a legendary New York figure. Tell us about him. Well, first of all he loved living in New York more than all the other places where he lived alot. He, you know, he started working in Manchester. And then he was in London he worked on fairs and markets all over England. And then we moved to Australia. He would stray Leah. But he loved selling in in New York, but he's been doing this kind of selling since he was fourteen fifteen cents. He left school. And how did he get started? Well, he he needed money after the war, and there were bump sites around Manchester and people up. Yeah. Exactly and markets with sash up there, and he used to go he had a job I think is kind of a messenger or something and on his time off used to go to the bomb site. And there there were men who became his mentors. Pitchman? We call them grafters in England who sold all kinds of things using all kinds of skills. To crowds of people. And so he was mesmerized by these men and there were loss older than him and gradually one by one. They took him under their wings. Yeah. And he he had a nickname. Joe the kid because he was the youngest. And he, you know, after not very long, he started beating the other these older men. What they'd been doing for years? I remember seeing him on the street, and he would set up on this corner that was two blocks from where I used to work, and you couldn't really see him. He was always hunched over very, right? That's right. So the reason he did that is because people are attracted to Sunita. They can't see properly. So it would arouse curiosity. And also when people are looking down at something it just makes it easier to to hold them there. Yeah. He would look help and catch people's eye. But no, he said, he always he was one of the main places he was at union square Greenmarket. Most people who've seen my dad does. Oh, yeah. We saw them at union square. And you know, there would be this huge crowd. And you couldn't see there's no way you could see what he was doing because huge crappy hind nothing drowsy crowd like a crowd. Yeah. That's right. And then I remember the moment when I opened up a magazine Vanity Fair magazine, I read a story about this person who sold peeler is on the street. So he's covered in potato flakes. All all day by night here. We get dressed up in beautiful suits and hang out with the most Tony in bars and restaurants, and he it right? Fabulous living doing this. Every single person who read that. So in your city said I know that guy, and I cannot believe it. So tell me about that you had other life is right. Actually, it wasn't really another life because first of all he he went to work in those fabulous. Which was one of the things that was so unusual about him. The only thing that he didn't wear with elegant shoes because you can't you can't walk and also like he did so much changing spots, for instance. And this again goes back to that tradition of these the mentors who taught him many many years ago when you go to work, especially in the street, you dress well because you don't want anybody buying thing because they feel sorry for you or anything like that. So when daddy even like, he works around Wall Street, you know, and they're all the the wealthy stockbrokers. One of them's pointed to one day, you know, instead like you've got a better than I have. So the elegant dress was really a lot of who he was as a salesman as well as going on. But you're right. I mean, he he used to go to the Pierre hotel, which is where she met his fourth wife and style who he adored she passed away a year before he did. She was an artist very elegant woman, and she would be that with with her friends at the hotel and people who had never met him before. But he was charismatic in a bar. I love champagne love the the good things in life. And you know, people couldn't believe you know, that that this is what he did today an hour ago. Yeah. Oh, people would would guess I wonder what he does, you know? And the idea that he is just a street trader, and so he passed away ten years ago. Almost exactly almost exactly. Yeah. Why did you start selling peelers after after he passed away? Well, the the main reason was that he passed away just a. A couple of weeks after he got the last big shipment from Switzerland. And he used to imports twenty five thousand pieces at a time. So there were all these boxes forty fifty boxes. Stacks up in his apartment, and I knew that I could sell them. And so that's that's really when I took his place. Really? And he had said to me he used to joke about it and say now, I've just ordered. I've just not a big big big delivery of peelers says you don't you don't want me to snuff it right now he says because that's your in Harrison and sure enough. Sure enough. That's what happened. And so I didn't work nearly as often as dads, you know, raising three daughters, and they were in school and. So I still I have one literally one bucks left. I want to sell but I don't want to sell. My goodness. Yeah. Yeah. Actually, a little less than than than a whole box. Yeah. So and I mean, I knew the pitch I knew how to sell it. But when he was alive, I was very reluctant to to sell the Peter. And I don't know why. Now, but I felt kind of intimidated and because he was so well known for selling the peeler and his whole. You know, his whole appearance and the whole package, you know, I didn't think that I could in any way approach that. But I I did. And it was. It was very bitter. Sweet, you know, every time I would sell at most seemed in Brooklyn at the Greenmarket borough hall, and as soon as I sit down people would come and all that. Who was an old guy selling it? Right. That was my dad. Oh that was your dad. Oh, we miss him so much. This is ten years after they still, you know, say oh, you sound exactly. Like your dad? I had a good teacher. Thank you so much for coming in Ruth and sharing your story and your peelers with us. Well, thank you for inviting me, it's a it's a.
