RE: Development Costs - Then V's Now

in LeoFinancelast year

While scrutiny and debate around new proposals are mostly a good thing (when done in good faith), I think it would be more productive to have more people create more proposals. Healthy competition is how we will get even more out of less (or rather, much more out of more as price goes up :) ).

I have refrained from joining the debates myself, as I would rather take a step back and work on a process we can apply to jointly define the needs we have and thus what an optimal allocation of the fund will look like. We're still early in all of this and I expect many iterations and improvements to happen, probably through a few short term inefficiencies and mistakes. But that's ok.

I am all for more proposals and more competition too. Even if they don't make funding they may bring ideas to the table, and push people to improve.

Very wise to stay out of the way on the chain, and just get on with work. I agree with:

We're still early in all of this and I expect many iterations and improvements to happen, probably through a few short term inefficiencies and mistakes.

And it being OK. It's new to all of us, but so far so good in my opinion.

I'm rather in alignment with that. But I also believe it might behoove us to use a more proactive approach to development and funding... rather than waiting for our many talented devs to "create something" and ask for funding, why not make the community part of the process?

Several very influential Hive members run initiatives that get LOTS of people involved, so why not run a community wide "What would you most like to see developed on Hive, what would you expect it to DO, and why?" challenge, and see what people come up with. Set the brainstorming in motion with the end users, rather than with the devs and see what comes up.
