Tags for the session - technology discussed/ideas considered:
Toward a Comms Community of Practice.
Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:
Kamal - proposal a wiki of SSI and how it might look - solutioning.
Way of looking - what problems we want to solve
What kind of content is a supply chain business trying to solve.
Certified Jem Stones industry - their industry bodies are yet to be convinced.
Business stakeholders and to understand the challenges
Changes in workflow.
Propose this lens.
Audience - group of people
Type of problems they have
Audience - Product manager
Industry - Supply chain
Problem - Consent privacy
Epistemology - management of knowledge
How industry is organized.
Many people are where many hats at different levels.
Too qualitative or too quantitative.
No one over-arching guide on how to create knowledge
Eg from parallel industry- been created in last 10 years?
How Etherium has evolved - all different layers of Etherium managed differently
They really drive - Eth/Vitalik conscious effort to be community driven - documenting and sharing knowledge - community is strong - vs. technology being the best.
What role should DIF play - central body that can do these things.
Knowledge Management and popularizing.
There are at least 2 bodies who are funded to promote these technologies - DIF and ToIP
How did ETH foundation
Driven by incentives - bitcoin+smart contracts incentives.
Chris - Comms at DIF - slowly better about how we communicate about what is happening at DIF and talking about the technology.
Talk about a plurality of solutions - use a platform that is understandable and accessible in the community.
Work with Judith - work stay aligned - not duplicate work - leverage partnership and
Public Action Plan visible?
Milestones - putting
Weekly Community Comms call - strategize - collect feedback so far.
Charles point - incentives.
Not problem - creating content - problem for SSI - come back that crypto community community is getting a lot of adoption but we are not getting it
Giving $ for articles that are written.
No incentive to issue and receive VCs.
We have seen crypto currencies building community.
Incentives are hard
What is the appropriate Tone to strike
Hardly disorganized and full of problems.
The foundation (DIF, ToIP) Comms people -
Why projects chose certain things.
Help them communicate about it well
Give them a chance to present.
Example: Sam Harris - invites people on to share their opinions.
They edit things so they present things in the best light possible.
Giving the Leadership capacity to give their best story - why they did things the way they did.
Regardless of what we
Blogs websites / guides out there.
People not involved in the space are not going to come to the organization
They are going to read whatever is at the top of the search results
So SEO is the important.
Chris start a YouTube channel - solve 50% of the problem.
We need opinionated content - commission it.
Mediated Opinionated Content
Mike Jones - Daniel Hardman discussion about different choices.
Informational - Edutainment.
Learn to Earn - 3 platforms that do this
Polygon - has own course. You get paid - finish certification, complete it - issue a VC share on linked in.
Crypto Community is doing this.
We don’t have enough talent or Talent Pipelines
Stickers - laptops
Collectable NFTs for Hackathon participation.
Went through below list of maybe topics
Judith - complete decentralized Universe vs. Decentralized way of VCs fith with Existing structures vs. Centralized phone home surveillance
We use words like “we” and “this community” has such disparate thoughts on what we should be doing. Hard for a professional communications person.
Hard to take and package in any sort of message - message isn’t clear.
DIF should communication - Decentralization looked at as a gradient. How DIF should represent. Here is the paradigm - then can talk about these things (particular protocols) - it fits into this paradigm
Can’t talk about advantages and disadvantages. Its a spectrum.
Identity - then the other things these technologies can enable - not same conversation
Kamal - SSI is more then just SSI - more about trusted data.
Talk about your solution as a company - trusted data VCs
VCs relative to internet of things.
Hospitality and Travel Use-Cases posted to YouTube
Walked through real world scenarios
Thoughts on what is needed:
I believe we have to meet the market where they are at and improve processes they have current strong emotional connection to.
Explainers Comparing Key Things: That are simplified yet technically accurate
Who are papers for?
Who is the audience - what is the purpose for the paper.
There might be more than one paper.

Who are decision makers that can say - YES
Who are the blockers that can say - NO
Different way to think about it.
Hope and promise - easy to merger and aquision
Massive Liability - can’t audit data
What are the concerns of big organizations?
The range of philosophy / architecture:
Decentralized Universe vs.
Decentralized way of VCs fith with Existing structures vs.
Centralized phone home surveillance

H&T SIG - using different perspectives
Reason people pick different curves based on philosophy underpinnings.

DIDComm vs OIDC models for Exchange
DID Methods & DID resolvers
PKI - what it is and how it works in SSI
Potential metaphor to explain crypto: “mixing paint colors” — where a private key is a set of paint colors, and the public key is the resulting color from mixing that set. If you can produce the mixed paint color, you’ve proven you are the person who knows the set of paint colors that mix to produce that one color
SSI for Privacy Lawyers - why it is so much better
"The lawyers will save us" - The most effective "convincer" of why corp and gov IT needs to care about privacy - GDPR compliance and legislation on privacy.
Operational Arguments for SSI for Tech folks
Privacy approach (they don’t care about privacy)
Operational Security - dont’ have central service to run - operation easier - millions of people scalability -
Scalability - Infinitely Scalable Low Cost Federation
Openness to other - run digital infrastructure as a government - private sector can join.
Open room for innovation - count more for governments
Give advantage for economy
