I wonder what people think about us approaching the EFF https://www.eff.org/ or a similar group to help represent our users (the people). Or should we try and set up similar? It strikes me as something that is focussed on people would be good, it may be this very community itself. I am not sure, I don’t believe in re-inventing wheels but is the EFF representative of people or … Worries me there are groups that seem to represent part of the world (the rich part) and perhaps we can do better.
Anyway this is a usual searching question to try and look at consolidating the community behind a charter and group who is focused on users as opposed to projects or just technology.
I may be way off or sleep depraved So all comments and critique welcomed. We do have the MaidSafe Foundation and there is a board forming there to try and do similar, it may be to close to MaidSafe though? Certainly the name seemed to make people feel like that previously.
This may be linked to https://maidsafe.org/t/how-does-the-community-decide-things although that worryingly focusses on safecoin and not the whole network. We need to remember this project is to enable and protect all the worlds people (well its my drive for sure). To me this is way more than cash or profit (although important), its freedom and privacy to innovate and evolve our worlds people together. Its everything we have in this project I think and nothing in particular.
