I’m looking for a place to discuss the following, maybe it’s here or maybe you know a better place?
philosophy of Brave and socially responsible internet software
Basic Attention Token (BAT) - After reading the Basic Attention Token (BAT) that is behind Brave, I have some questions about it… where best to post and discuss those questions?
Ex. BAT algorithm: 1pt for 2sec, 2pt for 30, 3pt for 60 with diminishing or bounded for longer Question: but wouldn’t this incentivize content to be quick to read fluff? How to avoid that incentive?
How to keep users from hacking the BAT and just telling advertisers you spent a lot of attention on things that you didn’t (fraud basically)?
Many other questions…
I’m also looking for a place to discuss more general internet social responsibility issues (some of which Brave is mitigating, thus the connection), like the following:
- Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook and Microsoft
- Buy up competition or use unfair advantage to kill them – copying and litigating features – ex snapchat story feature copied by facebook
- Counter examples: Netflix, Uber (sort of… now owned by google) and Airbnb
- The frightful five market data is an unfair advantage

I’ve found plenty of places where people say there are issues but almost no where that is discussing practical solutions (except Brave).
