The State of Steem Forums got off to a great start last Thursday.
Around 150 people listened into some vibrant and enthusiastic discussion about where Steem is going now and what needs to be done by the Steem Community to take over the running of the platform.
Last week it was broad brush, big picture talk. Now we are moving on to the nitty gritty covering specific areas of the Steem ecosystem in more depth.
This Thursday it is Technology - API nodes, RocksDB, SMTs, RC Delegation Pools, account creation and all that jazz.
These are likely to evolve and be refined but this is the current schedule for the forums...
Forum 2 (20 December) : Technology - API nodes, RocksDB, SMTs, RC Delegation Pools, account creation
Forum 3 (10 January) : DApps, Apps & Developments - nodes, business plans, delegations, marketing
Forum 4 (17 January) : Steem Economics - steem inflation, attracting investors, revenue streams, advertising
Forum 5 (24 January) : Marketing, onboarding, PR
Forum 6 (31 January) : Communities, content creation, curation, retention
Forum 7 (07 February) : SteemCommerce, shopping with steem
Forum 8 (14 February) : Pulling it all together, where have we got to, where are we going, how are we going to get there
All are on Thursdays 8pm - 11pm UTC/UK on MSP Waves.
To make the numbers manageable we will be inviting certain witnesses, developers, community leaders etc to participate as speaking guests.
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join in the discussion through the live chat on the PAL/MSP Discord channel during the forums.
I am keen to make the discussions as inclusive as possible so if anyone would like to come on air for any of the particular forums please do message me in Discord (Pennsif#9921) and we will do our best to include you.
