Dan Romero (@dwr) of Farcaster joins Erik on this episode. Takeaways:

- He aims to grow Farcaster large enough so that developers can innovate using their API and data permissionlessly.
- Any developer can build whatever they want on Farcaster — features are not limited to what the core team wants to see built.
- Eugene Wei’s Status as a Service theory is correct in Dan’s opinion.
- They doubled down on the client and having a polished UX at Farcaster. Dan says that the platform is only as good as the number of people using it. The client helps grow the user base.

- According to Tim Wu’s The Master Switch, all major communication technologies typically start out decentralized and become more centralized over time because centralization has tended to provide a superior consumer experience.
