Q- How can people maintain a decentralized discourse graph with a high quantity of information in it

Last updated May 23, 2022

If everybody comments in the discourse graph, then comments become useless. If everybody produces content, then it’s harder to find the right content.

As discussed on Q- What community roles are necessary in a decentralized knowledge graph, curators and educators will play a valuable role in reducing the sheer quantity of information people need to keep up with.

Existing solutions like Twitter try to solve this problem through a newsfeed. However, C- Newsfeeds are a poor intervention for distributing and discovering relevant information. Hypertext is often better, but not the only solution.

Progressive summarization is one response to this as a way to capture potential energy of information consumption.

C- An ideal decentralized discourse graph would enable people to view information at different levels of granularity through a ZUI.

Alternatively, search operators could be helpful, such as a way to only view things between certain dates. See I- Search as a primitive for more discussion.
