πŸ“š Node [[agora]]
πŸ“„ agora.md by @bmann

Welcome to [[boris mann]]‘s section of the agora!

We’re experimenting with [[Connecting to the Agora]], and what some of the configurations and conventions are. The [[Anagora]] page has my notes and feature requests.

Agora

An agora, in its broadest sense, is a conceptual space where people attempt to bring an increased level of intentionality, explicitness, and mutual agreement to the principles and protocols for interacting in that space. A further aspect of the idea of an Agora is that it is a space which enables collaboration. In particular, it is a space that allows for collaboration guided by specific shared interests, without requiring the co-consitutients of the agora to be aligned more fully or generally in terms of their intentions, values, etc.

Some topics that the idea of an Agora is related to: [[transparency]] [[decentralized structures]] [[egalitarian principles]] [[judgement]] [[algorithms of interaction]] [[communication]] [[collaboration]] [[knowledge sharing]]

There are (infinitely) many possible variants of how this idea might be implemented in concrete, real-world situations. For example, an agora could be a space that is opened up inside a conversation between two people. Or it could be a collaborative project that is accompanied by specified rules. Or it could be a collective agreement about how to handle certain types of situations.

One variant of the idea of an Agora is a place where personal notes are shared, with the common goal of pooling information and sharing knowledge. One implementation of this idea is https://anagora.org . See also https://flancia.org/go/agora .

The term "Agora" and the basic idea come from [[Flancia]].

Agora is a β€˜wiki like experimental social network and distributed knowledge graph’, so they said. I would say it's an aggregator of digital gardens and a community around it. Anagora is the first and biggest instance of it. Flancian was the one who created it and the software behind, but there were other good contributors. Thank you!

I'm part of it:. I also frequent the associated video conferences.

Agora makes a big emphasis on graphs and links. Their analogue of hyphae is called a node, nodes are generated from contents from multiple sites. There is also a cool notion of push/pull and go links!

I was inspired by Agora's go links and implemented something very similar in Betula.

2022-01-18 I wrote the author an email about the possibilities of making Agora and Mycorrhiza compatible. 2022-03-06 Melanocarpa was added to Anagora, along with Mycorrhiza support. Furthermore, in 2023 proper support of Mycomarkup was added.

The Agorans also seem to be using git-based markdown-driven digital gardens mostly. It is the default choice for many, but luckily support for more formats was added. Mycorrhiza, for example, is supported! There is also Betula in Agora.

You can't really talk about Agora without Flancia.

Agora

This looks like a really cool way of aggregating digital gardens into one place. To produce a community garden (or, an agora). Interesting to contrast with how a solely P2P way of connecting gardens might work, no central aggregator.

An Agora is a distributed, goal-oriented social network centered around a cooperatively built and maintained [[knowledge graph]]. The implementation you are currently looking at tries to assemble such a graph out of a collection of digital gardens.

I’m still trying to fully wrap my mind around it.

A [[Knowledge Commons]]

A social graph. Maybe even a form of social media.

[[Questions]]

  • Node for relationship between nodes?
  • Meta layer
    • Tags, annotations, branch off nodes, etc.
  • How are users on the agora authenticated?
    • Possible to have only one
    • Unique IDs limited to 1
  • How are links out of the agora handled?
  • Can one attach or put in documents? Where are those stored?
  • Has monetization been considered?
    • At least as a mechanism to fund the platform itself, so that it doesnt need to rely on donations/private support

Agora is a wiki-like distributed knowledge graph blended with a social network. The shared Agora can be contributed to by anyone who agrees to the social contract. Agora aims to facilitate sharing of synthesis.

[[Q- What synthesis behaviors must be done by an individual and what responsibilities can be distributed to many people]]

[[C- An ideal decentralized knowledge graph would map a social graph and a knowledge graph]]

What do you think about the Agora?

Feel free to use this open space to tell us! We’d love to improve it for you; in general, to make it more useful and inclusive for others.

The commons is based on a shared set of values. A commons may define rules for self-governance. Rules for cooperation can be attached to working spaces, which in an [[agora]] all map to [[wikilinks]] resolved in a [[federated]] system.- [[2022-10-21 14:24:07+00:00]] @[[flancian]]: https://twitter.com/flancian/status/1583464151568945153

I promise I’ll make the [[agora]] usable for the [[commoners]], meaning among other things: for the non tech oriented, for the non privileged, for [[the people]].
