First Posted on my Steemit blog April 2019.
I am still waiting for the nod from Zero Hedge after several ‘applications’ , what prompted my current interest was this interesting article appearing there today,
Are we witnessing the Attempted Final Take down?
I started storyboarding the Grub Street eco system yesterday with a legacy Wix site, a Beezer App connecting to you, John Ward and David Malone to start looking at ways to extract data from the web on AUthors as they register on the platform, The App should extract data as served by Google and Mozilla and then optimise metadata to secure better legacy search results for registered Writers/Filmmakers on the platform,
This Mother of all bumper stickers is attempting to capture the breadth of functionality condensed into the proposed Grub Street Journal App the App is a Librarian and Curator for multimedia creators and a Curator/Librarian Sensai teacher devils advocate reading group and search engine for the Journal Subscribers. Every Subscriber is an Editor. critic and is the completer of the Grey space.
I think Web3 as a brand has negative connotations developed from 'land-grabbing' and this web2 vs web3 narrative
I think Web3 as a concept is inherently p2p. taking back data, taking back software, taking back connection etc…

Playing with functionality, Grub Street Journal is an app in development which is token agnostic, We wish to place our artists, writer and multimedia works on web 3 across the 3 web networks and all platforms Legacy, Cloud and Web3, propagation of the Artists work and its availability for collaborative/licensed use in whole or part with cryptographic royalty collection and attributions will be managed by our back end Librarian/browser (“Exegesis, Hermeneutics Flux Capacitor”). Immutability and security for all content will be courtesy of the Web 3 distributed networks

Social Networks have been all the rage years ago when they reached their peak and destroyed a couple democracies around the world (including mine) but this is not a text about that. The lens I want to use for us to observe social networks is the content creation and manipulation lens, so grab your lens and follow me through some underexplained reasoning.
- Social Networks try to present a minimal UI, just enough so that the core features are usable. They are target at common, easy idioms that foster passive engagement in the form of content consumption and sharing. Content sharing is not the same as creation or manipulation, you’re supposed to bring content from outside.
- Social Networks have been optimized for mobile-first UIs which provide a better experience in detriment of a more powerful and flexible experience.
- Social Networks prioritize artificial rituals such as liking which gives the trappings of interactivity without generating new content (while also helping fine tune their profiling and tracking data for advertisement purposes). In essence they are metric factories where most features are present to provide measurable forms of engagement to feed ML powered advertising engines. The content sharing is just the fuel used to burn through these metric rituals.
So, my case is, Social Networks limit the amount of interaction
