A challenge in maintaining a decentralized discourse graph with a high quantity of information in it is the amount of time required, without a strong incentive system in place. This is an open space to explore.

As curation is an important role in maintaining a decentralized discourse graph, how do we increase the frequency of social tagging behaviors?

Challenges also exist because it is easier for people to cite their own work than the work of others due to limitations of human memory.

Tools like Hypothesis enable active reading through progressive summarization, which is a constructive behavior in discourse graphs. Incrementally processing notes is a key user behavior to promote synthesis. Synthesis is supported by active reading.
