@bobsummerwill, You are bringing up some very important stuff. We’re working on what were calling the “Ethereum Consensus Project” (https://canonizer.com/topic/210-Ethereum-Consensus-Project/1) at Canonizer.com. It would be great to start a topic to see if some consensus can be built around some of your ideas. For example, we need to get a topic started around the Ether EIP process. Would you mind helping us craft a topic around your ideas so we can find out how many people do and do not agree with this?
Also, as we tweeted here: https://twitter.com/StallionCornell/status/1174439694643298304, we need help tracking consensus for (or against) ProgPoW.
I do not think that DCOs are magic. I do think they would help.
We also need to be more sceptical about contributions from anonymous contributors, whether or not we choose to change our process.
Do we need code so badly that we proceed even given these unknowns?
We should not be afraid of the "conspiracy theorist" tag when there is real risk to the protocol.
I think she had the same kind of level of integrity, from what I have seen.
The fact that she is CTO of a company whose primary customer is Calvin Ayre and who Craig Wright advises (and that she got that job by securing that deal, apparently), is very telling. She is cut of the same cloth.
At first I thought that this was just "by association", and that those associations were maybe conflated. Also that "conspiracy theories" around Kristy (like the links with NVIDIA) was maybe conflated. And that she was an innocent.
She is so far from that. She is the problem herself. All the stink around her is because of her actions and patterns of behaviour.
@MicahZoltu said: “The solution to disagreement is not excommunication, it is more communication, education, and dialog.”
Excommunication is definitely not good, but “more communication” doesn’t scale. If more than 10 people are trying to talk, the important stuff gets lost in the noise. Currently, censoring is the only way to resolve the scaling issue when many people want to speak, and that shuts out a large number of people. Canonizer solves these problems because it can scale. You can find out, concisely and quantitatively, what millions of people want to say, so everyone can get a voice. But this does take a bit of work to negotiate between everyone who wants to speak, for everyone, in the smallest number of camp statements, building as much consensus as possible.
