  • Receive Your A-key.
  • Build Your Token
  • Establish your Initial Authority.
  • Start Learning, teaching, seeking, researching, discussing, browsing.
  • As you learn, teach, seek, research, discuss, or browse build your authority by adding value to the Community by building new blockchains or adding to existing Blockchains.

    • Verify existing Blockchains
    • Add new meta-data to an existing Blockchain

    • Every time on blockchain you created is further validated.
    • Add more texture to your profile

Can you lose Authority?

  • Ways to lose Authority
    • Beginning A Blockchain with known fraudulent data.
    • Taking a position based on bias not on a reasonable perception of reality.
    • Fraudulently verifying existing Blockchains
    • Add new meta-data to an existing Blockchain that does not add value to that blockchain

Are Members Vetted?

  • Yes!
    • All Members are “vetted” to ensure that they are essentially who they say they are.
    • We do this to ensure the Learning Community gives members opportunities to be honest and frank in their additions to the community.
    • We are dedicated to protecting this space by making sure all members are vetted as appropriate.

How are Board Members Chosen?

  • Must be  a “Resident Member.”  
  • Your commitment to do something that showed your positive contributions to the community.
  • Other than that, we were looking for a group of people that helped make the community more representative of the extremely broad and diverse group of participants. We will turn over and expand the board periodically to bring in new perspectives and connections within the community.

    What are the Standards of Behavior In the Community?

    • The Golden Rule – Matthew 7 v12 – “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Luke 6 v31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.”
    • No Personal Attacks – 
    • Attempt to be as honest as possible in terms of your core beliefs.
    • Remember the goal is to find new information/evidence/data and/or verify existing information/evidence/data.

    What are Learning Threads?

    • Learning Threads are specific things the community or individual wants to learn more about in order to thrive in the 21st Century.
    • Learning Threads can be very narrow like “What is the best way to cook chicken on a grill.”  Or Learning Threads can be very broad like “What is the best Healthcare system for the Georgia 6th District?”  
    • Learning Threads could also be very technical, like, “What is the best Wi-Fi Router should I buy?”
    • All learning Threads start with a question and an answer.  The community then adds value by suggesting facts, conclusions, and recommended actions that either support the answer to suggest a different answer.
    • Learning questions, answers, and value added information are all fully editable by the community via a “Wiki.”
    • Learning Threads start with questions, like, “What is the best Healthcare Policy for the community.”  Then one or more answers are proposed, like 1) The best healthcare policy is Medicare for All, or 2) The best healthcare policy is to have no healthcare policy.
      • Then the community offers facts, conclusions, and recommended actions that support or counter a particular answer.  
      • Each individual community member can then evaluate the questions and answers and either agree, disagree, and/or suggest why they agree or disagree.
      • The reason this can work is that all learning communities agree to use a communication standard that allows better valuation of the require that all participants to the learning tracks be vetted so individuals within the community can better value the contributions.
      • And, as with any Wiki, any changes to specific answers or questions must go through a review process.

    What are Blockchains, How are they Created, and How Are They Used?

    • Blockchains are attached to all Learning Threads. 
    • Blockchains start when a Community member posts a new Learning Nugget.
      • A Learning Nugget contains a packet of raw data in any format (jpeg, mp4, doc, txt, pdf, etc,)
      • A Learning Nugget also contains Meta-data about the packet and author.
    • Blockchain is added to by other members.
      • Members can verify the blockchain.  (Any number of things can be verified in a blockchain; Author, dates, events, facts, etc.)
