Hey all –
I’ve designed a bot for my Slack group that runs a virtual economy. The big idea is that social media is broken because of broken incentives – metrics are engagement instead of deliberately user-identified value.
The solution I’m proposing is creating an ecosystem where deliberate user-identified value is both a requirement for being engaged, as well as a mechanic for producing value itself. The mechanics of this economy can be read in the instructions here:
If anybody is interested in participating, please message me or email me directly and I’ll send invites and the first round of the game will start tonight at midnight Pacific time. I hope to run contests weekly, but we’ll see how it goes.
