Hello world.

Hey all. Three things about me.

  1. I'm interested in how to make decentralized platforms sources of good information. By good information I mean information that is both true and relevant. So obviously I'm interested in things like Augur, but I'm also interested in how to construct structures so that something like Steemit holds solid content. The current public purveyors of content around the world, news and media, are notoriously unreliable--in the sense that they both tell lies, and they cannot discern what is important--no matter where you live. I'd be interested in the kind of community practices that make things like Steem better sources of information. If there's a good place to start to learn more about current efforts in this direction, so I can contribute, tell me!

  2. I love speculative fiction. If William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, and Jorge Luis Borges had a threesome and a child was somehow born nine months later, that would be my ideal writer. I also like to write, and will probably attempt to write here. If there's a community for that kind of thing here, either for recommending or writing such works, I'd be interested in it!

  3. I'm interested in machine learning. Hope to increasingly work with it professionally. Most particularly interested in persistent, multipurpose agents, or any kind of research that looks like it's advancing towards actual agenty intellects.

good to have you here. I am looking for developers music enthusiasts spread the word :)

Welcome. On the evidence of this post alone, I can already tell you're going to do great here. You have a lot to offer and your interests align with the consensus. You'll need to use more tags in your posts though.

Also, posts stop earning after the seventh day which means any upvote after that point is tragically wasted.

Thanks for the welcome, and for the advice re. tags. Still a noob.

Good to have you here Vermis. You should also do well to reply to comments as that will show us you are human and not a self-righteous prick. Welcome to Steemit! 😀

Good job! Thanks to @edumurphy you have planted 0.49 tree to save Abongphen Highland Forest in Cameroon. Help me to plant 1,000,000 trees and share my Steem Power to the others. Selfvoting is prohibited, but that should be the reason to spread the world to protect our precious environment. Check out profile of our conservation association @kedjom-keku and the founder/coordinator @martin.mikes to get more information about our conservation program. My current SP is 14500.76. Help me to plant more trees with your delegated SP.

Thanks a lot,
your @treeplanter
