Ned pops up on Discord
Ned Scott, Steemit Inc CEO, made an unscheduled appearance on @aggroed's show on MSP Waves last night.
After typing a number of responses in chat, he was then persuaded to come on air.
One of Ned's main points was his desire to complete the developments to enable Hivemind and Communities to become a reality.
While still in chat he spelt out his current vision...
My vision is for Steemit Inc is steemit.com is vibrant communities web app with tokens/cryptocurrencies incentivizing and supporting the activities of those communities.
When we can get communities finished and SMTs -- then being on Discord and prompting our community members to "Let's get a X community going" will be great. My belief is we need more accessible tools that drive direct value of Steem -- I believe communities and steemit.com and smts are critical to this vision. There is a hivemind post coming out tomorrow, to that end.
Ned also agreed to look into options for enhancing communication channels with the community at large.
One possibility mooted was a Steemit Inc Discord server. Alternatively @fyrstikken suggested a forum.steemit.com setup. This could be built using @buildteam's TokenBB forum system that is currently being developed.
Look out for more information coming from Steemit Inc very soon...
