Trying to figure out how to effectively curate the ideas in this forum into intuitive and actionable insights.
How do we do this? There’s both
time to work with. My initial thought was to build it up layer by layer, so with each new summary it’s building on those before (weekly, monthly, etc…). That’s based on the assumption that the linear progression of ideas through time tracks progress. This might not be the case! Often when ideas are revisited and seen in a new light they can feel completely fresh and/or spark insights that were originally lacking.
With this in mind, theme and intent might be more important: creating summaries based on core themes (governance, incentives, SourceCred meta-game) and then also have summaries based on initiatives (things we want to do). This would provide ongoing overviews of the core SourceCred topics so that the community can more easily stay up to date. This would also make it easy for community members to see what the current initiatives are, what the relevant information is, and how they might contribute. When an initiative is created, part of creating it could be to curate all the relevant conversations/data for that initiative, creating a summary that recycles past contributions to make the initiative more actionable (no ideas left behind!). This might even involve reaching out to those who were earlier brainstorming on similar things and asking them if they want to contribute to this related initiative to earn cred (or have fun).
So from the perspective of a community member, when they open the SourceCred Discourse they would see:
- general conversations
- summaries of core topics
- summaries of initiatives that they can contribute to
There’s probably better ways to go about this too. This is just my second idea after the default assumption that chronological things are good lol
- As a community member, would this be helpful to you?
- What other ways might we curate content, with the goal being to distill open ended brainstorms into actionable insights or initiatives
