We hope that you’re all enjoying your holiDAOs 😎 We’ve been busy sharing our 100 Days a DAO in Barcelona and meeting some of our members & friends in Paris for the first of our Good Growth Round Table - you can read the juicy write-up here 👀

We also asked your motivations for buying a Protein NFT 💚 and our very own Kes spoke to Molly Dickson, founder of female-led COWGIRLDAO, about the social impact of DAOs and their incredible fight for abortion rights in the US 🤠✨ You can listen back to the episode here👂and make sure you follow our Twitter for future updates.

Protein is a place where people and ideas grow 🌱 We do this through our global community, agency, and studio space. We believe we’ve all got a responsibility to think and act bigger than ourselves and that good growth can only be achieved by balancing progress, profit, and purpose.

Yes, we really have published 694 issues of this newsletter. The first Protein Supplement was sent on 17th September 1997 to 14 people and (other than a few breaks over the years) has always aimed to distill what’s happening at the intersection of culture and technology into a concise and accessible digest. If you’re interested in digging into the (incomplete) archive, you can here.

You can also find us on Discord, Mirror, Twitter, and Insta. We always like to hear from you and how we can improve what we do, so if you want to get in touch about anything, please use this form.
