Peer-to-Peer Accountability Enforcement/Periscope

From InstaGov
Jump to: navigation, search



The main difference between Periscope's implementation and mine is that they randomly choose people to decide, rather than letting users build up a trust network of users who vote when they feel like it. Could be less partial, but (like any randomly-chosen jury) could also be stupider.

  • It's good that someone is at least trying to make use of community for policing, to remove some of the centralized bottleneck.
  • I still like my idea better -- but it will be informative to see how/if this works, and what people say about it.
  • It also might be a way to bridge the gap when a new network doesn't yet have enough "trust" connections to make practical use of my idea.
  • It may have practical applications beyond comment-policing.
