Re: <nettime> social media critique: next steps?

Agreed Roel, thanks for your nice list.

I would like to add one more project: Duniter.

As said here: http://perspective-numerique.net/wakka.php?wiki=SymetrieEtNeutralite2Engl

"If you want a symmetrical network, it is necessary to design it in such a way that it generate itself a new form of currency which has to be also symmetrical"

That what Duniter tries to do.

Duniter is a cryptocurrency software, which means it is a software providing the ability to create currencies. Duniter is different from other cryptocurrency softwares you may know (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Peercoin, ...) for 2 main reasons : its currency code includes the concepts of a Universal Dividend and Web of Trust; but also its Blockchain code, which is far more energy efficient, getting rid of the massive waste of energy introduced by Bitcoin.

So aside from the discussion of who listens (or didn't listen) to whose
opinion it can be interesting to have a closer look at action and momentum.

Three projects caught my attention and I think could be an interesting
case for this 'next steps' discussion:
