Co-creating moderating systems for decentralized social networks πŸ•Š

Where does web3 go after DeFi? πŸ€”

It gets social! 🀩

And the difference between social and antisocial = new designs for moderating.

Let's figure this out together!

Act 1 β€” AKASHA Conversations #2 πŸ”Š

AKASHA Conversations is a regular webinar exploring the critical questions of decentralized social networking, with expert presentations informing and inspiring open dialogue and action.

Today, we’re hosting our 2nd conversation with guest speaker Joseph Seering, PhD. We’ll explore together what we can learn from web2 moderating practices to better design web3 moderation systems πŸš€

πŸ“… Thursday, 20 January 2022 - 6pm CET

And yes, just like usual, we’ve designed some cool POAPs for attendees to grab! πŸ‘€

Act 2 β€” Starting an Open Design Sprint Challenge for Moderating 🌱

We’ve always believed Ethereum World should be a public good. And so we will only be able to succeed in our mission if we tackle the complex challenge of moderating together.

This is why we’ve turned to the open approach for co-creation, which is deeply rooted in the open-source movement.

We will design, together with our community, the moderation system that will make Ethereum World a delightful gathering space. We’ll join forces together in an open and collaborative way that draws from the experience and ideas of multidisciplinary Ethereans.

Everyone is welcome to join the fun and participate. We’re kicking off our open design sprint in February and we’d love to have you in! πŸ™Œ

The Hot List πŸ”₯

As usual, we feel compelled to show some link love right here! ❀️ Below are some of the top ideas and developments that have been moving the Ethereum space lately!
