Show Notes

James and Anjali Young are the Co-Founders of Collab.Land, a digital concierge for tokenized communities.

James, the CEO of Collab.Land, has founded and grown web-based companies since the early 2000s and was the first developer for Meta’s (formerly Facebook) game Farmville, and worked in previous roles as a software and flash developer. An early member of the crypto community, James co-wrote a white paper on token-curated registries in 2017, was a co-creator of the Moloch DAO framework, and co-summoner of MetaCartel. James is proud to be involved in the evolution of the Internet by empowering individuals through digital ownership. In 2019, he co-founded Abridged, a parent company of Collab.Land, supporting collaborative economies with access to seamless blockchain UX. 

Anjali, the CCO of Collab.Land, has been participating in and leading  online communities since 1993, as both a member and a moderator. She worked as a lawyer, an adjunct professor, and in the tech startup industry for 20 years. As Anjali’s interest in crypto and passion for web2 inclusion grew, she looked to build an equitable system for all of humanity. In addition to her interest in web3 community collaboration, Anjali is an artist who has a passion for NFTs and creativity and is an advocate for all artists.
