Distributed Social Sense-making
Neighbourhoods and the Social Sensemaker massively reduce the social and financial costs of entering and exiting neighbourhoods for groups and individuals. Groups have the means to make decisions about new individuals and about other whole groups, while individuals find they need not constantly “start from scratch” accruing the benefits of recognition in each different space.
This capacity for distributed social sense-making involves both establishing data provenance through peer verification as well as leveraging multiple viewpoints to generate and distill insights about individuals and groups. The Social Sensemaker facilitates peer verification at many socially-relevant junctures.
