Should #smartcontract code execution always be dispostive? Can code execution actually bind participants if litigation is always available? Does extrinsic goverance of #blockchains that may alter #consensus governance weaken, or strengthen a protocol? Who should care? /1
Short answer- everyone. #Developers #investors & #lawyers all need to understand #blockchain & #smartcontract governance to understand what it means to build on top of others' tech. Can you patent new art built on a blockchain? Will your software work if the underlying chain /2
upgrades its code? What if the underlying blockchain forks? How can a #smartcontract advocate for or against software changes to underlying #blockchain system functionality? Is it worth investing in a project built on a frequently shifting foundation.... /3

Hetan's right. #Transparency alone is insufficient, and his combined proposals provide a far better framing for how to achieve #AlgorithmicAccountability.

A few thoughts:

On #piloting, or what in medicine would be called #ClinicalTrials, to check solely for #bias is missing...
...the point. #Bias is just one side-effect; trials must (in stages) test for any and all - so the general approach must attend first to #safety (including 'rights impacts'), then to #efficacy, then #effectiveness.

While I agree publishing models may be of limited use, it is...
...still important that they are - if only to establish the principle that they can be forensically analysed when something has gone wrong, not hidden behind '#CommercialConfidentiality', etc.

Publishing the #provenance of the training dataset, and assumptions, is vital however!

Precision medicine, AI diagnostics & "global mining" of medical data; personalised education & AI tuition(!) when you could've had the world-class content online FOR FREE since the late 90s; 5G for digital inclusion - if you have a new smartphone...…
...and then channelling Dom et al. on "light-touch" regulation... in fact, fuck it! let's "simply start over". Plus ARPA(s) - though is "emphatically not a general model for running a country" really enough clear blue water?

The thing is, bits of this aren't wrong: certainly...
...the shift to net-zero, #sustainable energy; the need to (re)make #institutions fit for the 21st (and 22nd & 23rd...) century; also deciding, #democratically, what a good REALLY means for a '#DigitalWellbeingState'.

What really worries me, though, is the inherent glibness...

It looks like each #DeFi protocol issues own governance token (GT) now. But all we know, that minority token holders don't really influence the votes. Tokens from their perspective look really useless...

But, what if they can pool or lend them?🧐
1/ As consequence protocols face well-known "Voters Apathy" problem. For example, @AragonProject @MakerDAO. Often 🐳 own the vote, while a lot of little token holders never use their tokens.
#governance #defi #web3
2/ Accumulation of voting power using AMM and pooling mechanisms will empower minority token holders, provide them income opportunities, and increases participation in governance.

@MIT @grassrootza Thanks @MIT for sharing!

TL:DR? Thread!

1/ The @grassrootza pilot occurred before the coronavirus outbreak. Yet results from @mitgovlab show how #WhatsApp can be effective for organizers to move training + people development online when face-to-face interaction isn’t possible Image
@MIT @grassrootza @MIT_SHASS @azomer @MITPoliSci @AmandlaMobi @Kmoeti @MobilisationLab @CivicTechAfrica @mySociety @MITxonedX 2 / Piloted over five classes, the course reached more than 40 distance learners in #SouthAfrica, largely in urban and peri-urban areas near Johannesburg and Durban. What did the research show?

The populace has spoken and I shall now rant about #governance tokens. <thread>
It has been shown in prior research that governance rights are not that valuable, fundamentally speaking.…
Essentially, a premium you pay for voting stock, vs. non-voting is roughly 3-5% of the stock price.

Across the table Panel discussion series for #STIP2020.Today, 7th in the series is on #Governance & System Interconnectedness

Panel- @shubhatole
@netshrink @satyadash

Moderated by @vanshika_writes

Opening remarks-

@DeepanwitaC - Aspiration of common rational goals brings the importance of interconnectedness.

The role of policy is to bring interconnectedness at various levels for all stakeholders in STI-academia, ministries, etc.

Esp. imp for solving grand challenges
@satyadash - unless there are systems in place, can't work out governance & interconnections.

Once the framework is in place, entities & resource utilization, system optimization needs to be thought about next.

Frameworks of evaluation & monitoring are imp.

Well, this is an astonishingly poor effort from @royalsociety; a #DataGovernance "explainer" that tips its hand by its examples (i.e. health data) but not once in 28 pages mentions significant bodies like @HRA_Latest, for #ResearchEthics approval, or #CAG!… Image
While there are a whole bunch of players in what is an increasingly crowded/confused/confusing landscape, to miss out two of the key *statutory* #governance bodies seems more than a little remiss 🤦🏻‍♂️
If you are interested, and want to dig a bit deeper into the (#regulatory, not just #governance) #landscape around #health #data in particular, I recommend @EleHrwch & @claumartinezv's map:…

Ireland has a sparkling new Programme for Government on the table 🇮🇪✨#programmeforgovernment

What does it say about #NIreland & about #Brexit?

A #thread on the stand-out points.

(H/T @ConorHouston_ for the starting link!)

On #Brexit future UK-EU:
-IRL sees itself at the ‘centre of negotiations’
-Will maintain ‘constant’ contact with EU's UKTaskForce
-Wants close #UK-EU relationship
-Has all EU’s 🇪🇺priorities in there as its own…
-Notes full implementation of WA = key to an FTA
On implementing #WithdrawalAgmt IRL:
- Promises ‘active participation’ in Specialised Committee
(which means, according to UKG promise, NI Exec reps should be present too)

- Emphasis on rights dimensions of #protocol

- To seek ‘strong commitments’ from UKG to #ECHR (hmmm)

First, there was Phone diplomacy ☎️

Then came Twitter diplomacy, aka “Twiplomacy” 🐦

We may now enter Videocall diplomacy era, aka “Viplomacy” 💻

Who would’ve guessed #Google and #Apple could ever work on a *common* API?

A “good” consequence of the crisis (so to speak)🤷🏻‍♂️

And a move welcomed by @ThierryBreton, who highlighted the importance of privacy in a 🖥 call with Google’s CEO @sundarpichai…
Importance of #privacy shared as well with @Apple CEO Tim Cook during another video conference 🖥🍏…

1. My new research discussion paper ( outlines six key #governance challenges emerging from #energy #digitalization - first up is #datagovernance! @exeterepg
2. #datagovernance is the subject of a lot of current #policy work - issue awareness is high and broad support is reported for sector initiatives by e.g. @beisgovuk @EnergySysCat @ofgem @cse_bristol @SustainFirst. Report findings raise a few areas for further discussion, e.g.:
3. Where do principles-based approaches work well and where might new policy need enforcement/'teeth'?
Where are 'hard' barriers to data openness written into existing codes/licenses and how can we fix this? What is the optimal granularity for a national asset register?

True #DeFi #ecosystem development takes time, dedication and, most importantly, proper #Token incentivization methods.

Here's a thread from @shanghaipreneur about #crypto monetary policy


The $FNX strategy to bootstrap network effects.

@shanghaipreneur #DeFi is a movement - the collective vision of everyone all over the world working feverishly towards bringing about a viable alternative to the global financial system.

After all, it's a #brrrrr #brrrr world and, for now, we're just livin' in it.

@shanghaipreneur Like it or not, every #crypto project starts out as a central bank, like the Federal Reserve.

They then have to figure out how to #decentralize those roles. After all, they are creating a #token that powers their own micro-economy.

So, let's take a look at the latest #ContactTracing effort to emerge: - not an app, but 'components' to build apps & systems.

(There's so many tracers popping up now, it's getting like the rash of #COVID19 #SymptomSurveys that broke out last week...)

Nice to hear that @PeppPt "embrace a fully #privacy-preserving approach". So what exactly is it? (The devil, of course, is always in the detail...)

Ah! Here we are, "a brief description of our #privacy enforcing flow":

First, #AnonymousIdentifiers. Good. (And precisely what we recommended:…)

This really is a no-brainer; anyone proposing to use persistent #deviceIDs at this point is plainly a clueless numpty. Or actively seeking to #surveille.

Tonight I'm going to share highlights from the 2010 "Scenarios for the Future of Technology & Int'l Development" report produced by The Rockefeller Foundation & Global Business Network. Not just the "Lock Step" scenario, but all 4 scenarios. [54 page report]
Following Event 201 (Oct 18 2019), we must concede that the ruling class has been gifted with phenomenal and prophetic intuitions & insights. (They truly are the chosen ones.) Thus it is worthwhile, even mandatory, to study their scenario exercises & simulations.
"We believe that scenario planning has great potential for use in philanthropy to identify unique interventions... scenario planning allows us to achieve impact more effectively." [p 4]

📰'The 2021 UN #Food Systems Summit Has Started on the Wrong Foot – But it Could Still Be Transformational'


Read more by IPES-Food Co-chairs Olivier De Schutter & Olivia Yambi, via our friends @foodtank! #FoodSystems @FAO ImageImageImage
For the 2021 @UN gathering on #foodsystems, three things must happen:

"1. Turn the 'Food Systems Summit' into an inclusive 'World Food Congress';
2. Use the process to re-center food systems governance on the @UN_CFS;
3. Put #agroecology & food sovereignty firmly on the table." Image
"In other words, we must press the reset button. The @FoodSystems Summit must choose democratic debate over back-room deals, substance over showcases, and systemic solutions over silver bullets."

01 [thread #coronavirus] Le amministrazioni locali attaccano la cittadinanza sui media per sdoganare l'accesso disinvolto ai dati personali. Come? L'esempio di #RegioneLombardia e del Comune di #Milano.
02 I dati telefonici dei lombardi sono stati collezionati e anonimizzati per paragonare gli spostamenti di un mese fa e quelli attuali. Il calo del 60% delle persone che si spostano di cella (centinaia di metri) viene salutato polemicamente dalla Regione…
03 I media fanno eco acritico, oggi @puntotweet si domanda "i motivi che spingono tale massa di persone a ignorare le raccomandazioni, esponendo se stessi e gli altri" ma i dati non dicono questo. Sarà capitato anche a voi #iorestoacasa di dover fare una spesa o andare al #lavoro
