SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 13 December 2018

in steem •  last year  (edited)

Now we're talking...

Last night the first State of Steem Forum took place in MSP Waves.

I hosted the 4.5 hour forum with help from @teamhumble.

It was a record number of 'guests' on the forum including @aggroed, @anarcotech, @anomadsoul,, @exyle, @fredrikaa, @hr1, @imacryptorick, @llfarms, @lukestokes, @nathanmars, @paulag, @project7, @shadowspub, @starkerz, @taskmaster4450, @themarkymark, @therealwolf and @yabapmatt.

It was also a record attendance for any 'shows' I have done on MSP Waves - peaking at over 125 steemians.

This was a fantastic demonstration of the 'potential energy' in the steem community. The challenge now is to turn that energy into activity.

More on that soon. In the meantime I will be posting the recording of this first SOS Forum in a few hours if you would like to listen.

Next week's forum on Thursday 20 December will be focusing on Technology - nodes, RocksDB, SMTs etc. If you would like to take part in that please message me on Discord (Pennsif#9921).

There was also very good attendance at @shadowspub's 10th monthly Witness Chat yesterday. Thirteen witnesses joined in. The recording has now been posted in case you would like to listen...

On Saturday @aggroed will be holding his monthly Witness Panel on MSP Waves. No details have been released yet of which witnesses will be attending but @aggroed usually fields a strong team.

There has also been a little word from Steemit Inc - @exyle got a message from @andrarchy...

In the meantime...

Read. Absorb. Digest. Discuss. Act. Together.

I actually woke up at 4am and started fiddling with my phone
Managed to catch bits and pieces as I sent my son for his swim training
The energy coming through was amazing...

I will be looking out for the recording for sure, I want to listen to the whole thing and read the comments coming through... 4.5 hours.... woahhhhh

Your thing about the value we are bringing to steemit as opposed to just looking to reap the rewards... that really clicked for me... will be looking out for the rest

And thank you
It really gave me confidence that there are enough people invested in Steemit to take it all the way :D

Glad you found the forum useful.

Here is the recording if you would like to listen to whole forum...

What a great show @pennsif:
What did I hear tonight?

  • The need to showcase the Steem Blockchain as being DIFFERENT from others
  • Differentiating Steemit Inc from the Steem Blockchain is becoming increasingly important
  • Importance of demonstrating the real-world practical use of the Steem Blockchain
  • Bringing outside money in for services is vital for price stabilisation - and has the potential for STEEM to buck the crypto downtrend
  • Coordination / Communication across Community Developers is required
  • We have many talented and passionate people in the community
  • This is the blockchain for DApps
  • Recent news from Ned shines a light on a certain amount of dependency on Steemit Inc
  • We have to find a way of having a community run public node

Very much looking forward to the next one - and thanks for doing such a great job on the hosting. Best Wishes @CC

Good summary points.

Yesterday's addition of Steem onto the State of the Dapps site ties in with several of the points very nicely.

THIS. is what Steemit needs. Simply this - intelligent ideas and solutions, intelligent analysis instead of the sweeping condemnations and infantile barbs I've seen elsewhere. The intelligent ideas have, of course, been around, but this broadcast brought them together in a rational brainstorming session, and for me, there were so many lightbulb moments.
Things that stood out for me were the Partiko developer's discussion of micropayments, @fredrikaa's comment about it being easier to sell communities than crypto... there was so much more. I'll have another listen when the recording comes out.

Thanks for the positive feedback on the forum.

Here is the recording...

Hope you can make it along to the rest of the forums.

Fantastic! Thanks. I will certainly try to hear them live and if not, I will listen to the replays :)

Great job on the show @pennsif! You've become quite the radio pro!

Thank you!

Wow, it's really cool, I hope I will not miss it the next time.


I missed the show as I was at a Xmas party :) That huge audience is a very good sign that the community is still active despite the state of Steem.

Hope you managed to catch the recording...

I'll have to see if I can find the time. Pretty busy at this time of year.
