Many people don't understand or care about the things we're working on. Or if they do, their friends aren't there. Barriers to adoption are both technical and social. We have many beautiful systems -- SSB, Matrix, Cabal, etc -- whose UX are good (better in some ways) but exist in their own islands.Inquiry:
How could interoperability improve the UX of our emerging un-platforms, especially as we grow beyond social networks and static content into open app ecosystems? What does it even mean to interoperate, from both technical and UX perspectives? When does it make sense to build bridges vs defer to other projects' strengths? How do we handle impedance mismatches between technologies? And most importantly, can we all get together over a cup of tea and chat about it?
Hopes & Dreams
  • Communication lines between projects are opened up
  • We begin to understand the biggest interoperability hurdles and opportunities
  • We build relationships that continue to grow past DWeb Camp, and identify ways to continue working together

This should be relevant to people with UX skills, psychology, marketing, human-centred design, compassion, modest knowledge of at least one DWeb technology

Why Participate?
You want to see the DWeb make inroads into the lives of 'ordinary' people (excuse the prejudice embedded into that word; language is tricky).
You recognise the gaps between where we are and where we could be, and want to have a hand in closing those gaps.
You know that every project has a unique perspective to contribute, and that we're much stronger as allies (and our users are better off too). You want to help forge those alliances.

Session Rundown
A group conversation (or two or five) among people who are either involved in a DWeb project or are strong advocates for humane application of technology. This format would serve two goals:
  • To build warm relationships that keep growing after our short time together
  • I am totally green at this calibre of event and this feels like a low-key way of contributing something valuable to a topic I care about.
I will be happy to kick off and facilitate discussions and share my own perspectives (disclaimer: I'm part of the Holochain project), but my intent is to "surround myself with people more intelligent than I" and see what happens

Developer Mentor, Holo
Ever since I was little, I've loved investigating the connections between seemingly unrelated topics. These days, I'm especially interested in learning about the ways that technology can help or hinder our journey toward a regenerative future. I currently work with Holo as a developer... Read More →
