Two more State of the Steem Forums to go.

This week State of Steem #6 focuses on Communities.

As well as Communities topics to be discussed this Thursday include content creation, curation and retention.

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 forum will be...

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

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