Hello everyone, I am a philosopher who has not starved to death. Socialization and refusal to socialize make up my life.

I come from China. I have over half a year of experience in agricultural product marketing and taught myself how to grow grapes. I have done a research report on algorand, an ambassador of oasis, took inventory of the data infrastructure, and is tracking the solana ecosystem, but there are very few applications that can make my blood boil.

I came to the official website of ethworld through the research board shared by my classmates and came here.
I read some of Akasha’s blogs and plan to continue reading it.
EthWorld excites me.
I hope to push Akasha/EthWorld into some interesting progress.

I endorse the idea of ethworld’s decentralized network autonomy. ethworld needs me and I can help ethworld spread.

We are very interested in decentralized network autonomy, DID.
We very much want to be able to adopt a cyberspace free of censorship and control.
This has many practical implications for any citizen living in a sovereign state.
This facilitates the spread of truth

Done well, it may well facilitate the spread of truth :fist:t3: — perhaps most notably in those parts of the world renowned for having governments that don’t always appear to support the idea of truth to put it lightly.

But done less well, it may well facilitate a so-called ‘memeplex’ with no grounding in truth whatsoever, as more than a handful of 20th Century dysopia authors envisaged. It is evident to more than a few subject experts that this describes the state of a significant part of web 2 / centralised social networking today. Yikes.

Now all we have to do is figure out together what makes the difference between ‘done well’ and ‘done less well’! :sunglasses:

Hi! My name is Roy.
I just miraculously stumbled upon this forum and still trying to figure out what it’s about.
I’m fortunate enough to be able to develop whatever the inspiration has in store for me for almost a decade now. Which usually seems to be infrastructure for complex social systems. (Now, with web3 I guess it’s more like socio-economic systems :slight_smile: )

Most of my dev and architecture work is based on linguistics and semantics research I’ve personally done a few years back but haven’t really published anything since my learning disabilities kept me far away from academia.

I do like exchanging information on conversation basis though and would love to brainstorm with some fellow semantic system thinkers.
