SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 16 December 2018

The big news of the day…

Steem has been added to the State of the Dapps site that lists decentralised applications across a number of blockchains.

This is a major win for Steem, and puts the Steem blockchain on the same footing as Ethereum, EOS and POA as a place to build DApps.

This came about through a happy coincidence of @therealwolf releasing his Steem Apps site…

and @soyrosa starting an engagement with the State of the DApps team on Twitter enquiring if they could add Steem.

Matt @starkerz then brought in the @oracle-d Twitterstormers, @therealwolf offered his API to the State of the DApps team and the circle was complete.

A big, big well done to all involved.

The DApps of Steem now need to complete their details on the State of the DApps site. Check out @cryptocurator’s post on what is needed…


And today’s new App, DApp or Dev to check out is @steemsavvy…

In the meantime…

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 15 December 2018

The activity meter on Steem is ticking overtime.

Unfortunately I was away on family business but apparently @aggroed’s Steem Witness Panel went great guns. I am sure @aggroed will be putting out the recording soon.

On the Tech & DApp front @therealwolf launched a really useful site showing Steem’s wonderful DApps, Apps and UI’s…

Today’s TMMT (That Made Me Think) Award goes to @starkerz of @oracle-d who has made a very well explained post expanding on his thoughts about how people should put more value into the blockchain than they take out…


And another new App to check out and keep an eye on… @steem.how.

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 13 December 2018

Now we’re talking…

Last night the first State of Steem Forum took place in MSP Waves.

I hosted the 4.5 hour forum with help from @teamhumble.

It was a record number of ‘guests’ on the forum including @aggroed, @anarcotech, @anomadsoul, @crypto.talk, @exyle, @fredrikaa, @hr1, @imacryptorick, @llfarms, @lukestokes, @nathanmars, @paulag, @project7, @shadowspub, @starkerz, @taskmaster4450, @themarkymark, @therealwolf and @yabapmatt.

It was also a record attendance for any ‘shows’ I have done on MSP Waves – peaking at over 125 steemians.

This was a fantastic demonstration of the ‘potential energy’ in the steem community. The challenge now is to turn that energy into activity.

More on that soon. In the meantime I will be posting the recording of this first SOS Forum in a few hours if you would like to listen.

Next week’s forum on Thursday 20 December will be focusing on Technology – nodes, RocksDB, SMTs etc. If you would like to take part in that please message me on Discord (Pennsif#9921).

There was also very good attendance at @shadowspub’s 10th monthly Witness Chat yesterday. Thirteen witnesses joined in. The recording has now been posted in case you would like to listen…

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.

There has also been a little word from Steemit Inc – @exyle got a message from @andrarchy…

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 11 December 2018

As Britney would say… Oops he did it again.

Ned was a no-show for his resheduled livestream on Tuesday at 5pm. I guess he is still ill, or busy, or just plain forgot…

Alas none of the remaining staff at Steemit Inc HQ thought it worthwhile to post any sort of apology or excuse for the waiting crowds.

As we would say in Wales, “There’s communication, i’n it…”

Or perhaps they just don’t give…

Despite another rerun of ‘Where’s Neddy?’ Steem and SBD are slithering about around the same price as yesterday. But they do look like they could slip at any moment.

A bit of action on the witness front. Alas @swelker101 and @isaria are taking bow out with the @steemcreative witness on cost grounds. Hopefully not the first of too many for that reason.

And Pedro is relaunching his @prc witness as the new @dsound witness. Good move I say.

@dsound would be a most appropriate home for any witness votes that were previously with @steemcreative. Both are very keen supporters of the Steem music community.

And the token race is hotting up. Hot of on the heels of @fulltimegeek, @shredz7 announced the steem-state token system today.

If any of these community driven alt-tokens gain traction, then Steemit Inc’s SMT offering could end up being the sad chicken that didn’t cross the road in time.

If you want to catch a bit of witness action today @shadowspub is running here Witness Chat in Rambling Radio at 5pm UTC. And on Saturday @aggroed is running his Steem Witness Panel.

In between those two we have the first State of Steem Forum on Thursday 8pm – 11pm UTC on MSP Waves.

The team behind the forums – @pennsif, @llfarms, @paulag, @teamhumble and @imacryptorick – have already managed to bring together a terrific group of steemians to give their views on the current issues.

So far on the guest list we have @aggroed, @anomadsoul, @crypto.talk, @exyle, @fredrikaa, @hr1, @imacryptorick, @llfarms, @nathanmars, @paulag, @shadowspub, @starkerz, @taskmaster4450, @themarkymark, @therealwolf and @yabapmatt.

Taking part in the audience chat we should also have @acidyo, @crimsonclad, @drakos, @gtg and @birdinc from Steemit Inc.

Shout out if you would like to help or join in – everyone is welcome

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 9 December 2018

Sunday, a day of rest…

Rather quiet on the post front… still a few good ones to catch up on.

Steem and SBD fairly stable today in their low down way.

Still rather quiet on the Top 20 front.

But I did discover dclick … so we do have advertising already !

I’ve also been beavering away today with @llfarms, @paulag, @teamhumble and @imacryptorick to bring together the participants for the first of the State of Steem Forums on Thursday.

So far on the guest list we have @crypto.talk of Partiko, @frederikaa of Steempress, @llfarms, @paulag, @themarkymark, @yabapmatt. More to be confirmed shortly.

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 7 December 2018

Another day, another dollar. Well, not quite.

A few goodish things popping up on the blockchain.

Steem has held its ground around $0.25, SBDs crept back up a bit.

@fulltimegeek has announced that he is developing the Vaporchain Token Protocol independent of Steemit Inc. @harpagon and @yabapmatt have been working on something similar as an alternative to the long awaited SMTs.

A rallying call has gone out to the community to join in the campaign to get steem on Coinbase.

But holy moly where are the Top 20 Witnesses when you want to hear from them? Stand up and be counted I say.

On a positive note, that I will repeat again, we had a great second UK Steem Virtual Meetup last night. It was good to roadtest the forum format I am proposing for the weekly SOS Forums. They might just be useful…

Shout out if you would like to help or join in – everyone is welcome

In the meantime…

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

SOS Daily News : all you need to know about the State of Steem @ 5 December 2018

The Steem boat sails on, but the waters ahead still look choppy.

Ned has popped out an update on RocksDB and SMTs. Do check that out and make sure you tune in for his latest live stream at 5pm UTC on Thursday.

Still a tremendous silence from the Top 20 Witnesses … hello, hello, do you read me?

Only significant posts from witnesses today have been from @exyle and @prc.

Steem is just clutching on to #50 on CoinMarketCap.

We need to talk… and then do stuff. Pretty darn fast.

To help along the process I have put forward the idea of weekly SOS Forums…

Please bang me on the head and tell me to mind my own business if that really is a dumb idea.

Pennsif’s Progress #563 – Don’t blame the media, become the media

In 1995 I set up one of the first online community networks in Britain.

The network grew quickly. 

To begin with it had what’s on listings, articles about local history, lists of local facilities like doctors and pharmacies and the like. I added a guestbook. And then I added the first service in Britain for finding old schoolfriends. The network grew even faster and started to attract an audience of ex-pats from around the world as well.

Results from local football games, and other sports reports were added. We started dabbling in match reports from main football team in the city.

The network grew even more.

By 1996/97 there was a growing number of these local community networks around the country. A meeting was called at Sheffield University for organisers, coordinators and editors of these networks.

I went. One lecture changed everything.The topic of local news was discussed. Real news had seemed too difficult for my network – you needed real journalists and all that jazz. That was best left to the professionals – the newspapers, the radio, the TV. They had real journalists who knew the law and wouldn’t get sued. They must be doing it right. Trust them, they are journalists

But the speaker at the conference had other ideas. He talked about ‘citizen journalists‘. That sounded interesting. I fancied being one of them.

“Don’t the media. Become the media.” he said. 

He knew what the community networks had at hand. With the web, with the internet, with our local online networks we had something very powerful.

We could make the news. We could become citizen journalists. We could become media. All by ourselves.

And so it came to pass. I became a chief editor. We got lucky and got European money. We contracted a real newspaper editor to train us. We employed real journalists as well. We built up a team. We went to courts and councils. We wrote the news. Lots of it. We became the primary online media for a whole chunk of the Midlands.

The traditional media didn’t like it. One little bit. They banned their journalists from reporting on us or even mentioning us.

We tricked them and got round the ban. Then we employed their journalists. They got more annoyed. They tried to buy us.

I declined.

Then social media came along. People started to look in other places. I moved to another place 200 miles away.

My little network grew to have a third of a million visitors at its peak. By then my focus was shifting elsewhere.

Wasn’t that just fun while it lasted. We were pioneers. We met Prince Charles. We arranged marriages. We got on page 3 of the Sun. That was fun too.

I learnt a lot. I learnt to be a journalist. I learnt to write news. I learnt to make news.

I learnt not to take no for an answer. I learnt to make our own stories. To set our own agenda.

I learnt to be the media.

And now I am back here again. In the same place, but in a different space. The crypto space.

The ‘real news’ is fake news. It is dumb news. It is daft news. And for the most part it is absolutely irrelevant news.

With the blockchain we can make the news ourselves. We can be the media again.

Here Comes The News. Tune in to my new news show on Thursdays, 8pm – 11pm UTC, MSP Waves Radio.
