The list of speakers already signed up is below. If you would like to take part as well please contact me on Discord (Pennsif#9921).

The Forum will take place on the MSP Waves Discord channel between 8pm and 11pm UTC.

After this forum the remaining forums are...

Hi @pennsif SOS-forums should be continued after no 7 . This could become a permanent place for decentralised ideation and opinion-building for the Steem community (including Steemit Inc. in my personal understanding). Let’s work on this all together.

We will have to see what the community wants, and whether the forum format is considered useful or not.

I love SOS! keep up the great work getting this organized @pennisf

Thank you.

I'm currently listening to the recording of SOS forum 3 and looking forward to listening to recording of forum 4 when it's available. So wonderful to hear your voice as the central figure.
