Can we get rid of the idea that the "other sex" is impossible to understand and the other related stupidness, that a man and a woman can't be friends?
@grainloom @chr I think so too. I'm pretty excited about the potential for homomorphic encryption to allow for decentralized, anonymized voting protocols. People often neglect the implications this has for social dynamics, but now that people can see the effect of decentralization on toxicity in communities by what's happening in mastodon, I think it'll be easier for people to see the impact that certain new forms of computing can have.
@5alive @chr @grainloom This notion of relative trust in Reddit-like voting reminds me of reputation systems, which I don't know too much about, beyond what an acquaintance of mine wrote about a few years ago. From a community design perspective I think you've hit on a very interesting direction to pursue.
