SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 14 December 2018

The first State of Steem forum yesterday seems to have been well received.

If you missed it the recording has now been posted…

Next Thursday (20 December) we start the forums with specific themes. First up it will be technology – nodes, RocksDB, SMTs etc.

If you would like to take part in that please message me on Discord (Pennsif#9921).

On Saturday @aggroed will be holding his monthly Witness Panel on MSP Waves. No details have been released yet of which witnesses will be attending but @aggroed usually fields a strong team.

Maybe I should try having daily rewards for the best flog posts each day?  Today I found two stand=out blog posts.

First the TMMT (That Made Me Think) Award goes to @taskmaster4450…

Second the JDI (Just Do It) Award goes to @soyrosa…

Two new, for me, dApps popped up on the chain today – @discutio and @dtrip. More details below.

In the meantime…

Read. Absorb. Digest. Discuss. Act. Together.
