First of all, great job to Pierre, I watched the video and it was really explanatory for the non-mathematicians! job well done!
I do have some comments on the format though (and please before think, oh my god not that marketing nonsense again, please hear me out)…
PARSEC should (rightfully so) be in the forefront of showing what Maidsafe has to offer. Content wise Maidsafe really delivers and Pierre really knows how to explain difficult theorems in a understandable manner. However, it’s not only content that matters, it’s also how you bring it and I think this is where Maidsafe really has some steps to take. I would like to make my point using 2 examples of the video.
There is no clear formatting of the powerpoint slides and nowhere is it clear that this is a maidsafe invented protocol. Yes, in the first slides it is shown, but the whole protocol should be simmering in a sauce of SAFE network.
The explanation of the whisper protocol is almost an exact copy of the explanation video that Hashgraph has on its website. That in itself is not bad because it is a really good explanation of the protocol. However, if you look at the design of the slides, it looks like it’s been put together with the utmost hurry.
Like I said, next to content, it also matters how you bring your information. If you can’t sell it, your product can be the best there is but nobody will buy. PARSEC is one of the best things I have seen so far but if I would be new and interested I would be put off by the looks as it looks quite unprofessional (sorry).
I am not someone who’s just commenting from the sidelines. If somebody puts up the slides that were used I am more than willing to help in making them look awesome. Probably @SwissPrivateBanker also has some powerpointskills
