Q- What community roles are necessary in a decentralized knowledge graph
Authored By:: P- Rob Haisfield
As discussed elsewhere, one of the most important questions to creating a decentralized discourse graph is the following: Q- What workflows and behaviors facilitate synthesis? We also acknowledge that C- People are lazy, so if we can split up the work of synthesis, we should.
If we were to divide up the work of synthesis by roles instead of jobs, below are some possible roles:
- Curates the fire hose of information down for people to keep up with the discourse in less effortful ways
- Consumes information across many domains and forms new connections, addressing the question of Q- How do we solve the problem of different people referring to the same concept with different language
- Understands the discourse and educates others so they can more meaningfully participate. Yannic Kilcher is a great example.
- New knowledge provider / creator
- Contributes new information and beliefs to push the discourse forward. This may come from individuals or teams within the field doing novel research or reasoning, or from idea brokers bridging knowledge from one domain to another.
- Debater / contrarian
- Makes sure people don’t get too caught up in a consensus that is unsubstantiated.
This is one of our open questions going into user interviews. #questions/core
