The State of Steem Forum #5 & Ned Talks #2 - Thursday 24 January, 8pm - 12am UTC - MSP Waves

in #steem2 years ago (edited)

This week's State of the Steem Forum #5 will be an extended edition.

Steemit Inc CEO Ned Scott is returning for a second week.

Ned will be talking and answering questions for the first hour. Among the subjects of discussion he will be giving a bit more on the back story and forward vision for the recently announced Steem Alliance.

The State of the Steem Forum proper will then begin at 9pm UTC and run until midnight.

The Forum will this week cover Marketing, PR and Onboarding.

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 12am UTC.

After this forum the remaining forums are...

  • Forum 6 (31 January) : Communities, content creation, curation, retention

  • Forum 7 (07 February) : SteemCommerce, shopping with steem

All are on Thursdays 8pm - 11pm UTC/UK on MSP Waves.

To make the numbers manageable we will be inviting certain DApp/App owners, developers, community leaders and witnesses 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.

Ouh dang, are we going to sleepover?

Hi Marley, I have put in the provision to extend to 12 as Ned will be talking in the first hour. Then we will move on to the main part of the forum. If we don't need to run into the fourth hour we won't.

Looks like it will be a very interesting show.

Hope you can make it along to join in.

Now looking forward to this.

Will be great to see you there.

Looking forward to this one
