I've got some neat ideas for some sites...but not much web development knowledge. IRL, I've been a mechanical systems engineer, driven forklifts and cranes, inspected nuclear fuel rods, managed a team of six, led multi-million dollar projects, and presented to top industry regulators. In MMC, I play a never-ending devil's advocate spawned from the pure evil that is capitalism.
Itzik's doing a good job marketing outside MMC and Serter (stalemate) will help to bring in more merchant services. Freetrade and the others have made some progress on the back-end for voting, and now the Community can take a look into developing some front-end services.
I've got some ideas of what we could do, but need to write them up and hand-off for some web and programming support, etc. My project letter is below for initial development funds. I'm an engineer, so it's written a bit formal like a specification / contract...let me know your thoughts, and I'll check back in about 12 hrs or so.
I am currently voting for officers from:
(Note to Officers: Voting address below is new - please update candidate list - thx)
CEO Funding Request
Please send Satoshi to the following address to vote:
I am seeking up to 3 days of funding from the community block awards on a temporary basis. After this time, the block awards shall be returned to the previous officer. If additional funds are needed at a later time, I would re-campaign.
The community and I will use these funds to research and develop the areas of transparency and transaction history in the MMC blockchain.Development Plans
I own and would like to develop the following domain names further to benefit the community:
- mmcpost.com / mndpost.com
The corresponding .BIT domains have also been registered in the NameCoin blockchain. The text of this message shall be stored in the DataCoin blockchain. The DataCoin TXID may be made available upon request.
Site 1 is being developed as an MMC special-interest forum for posting trade offers, proposals, and requests between individuals, contractors, merchants, and the Community. It may include future options for submission to the DataCoin and/or NameCoin blockchains for independent record-keeping. See the following introductory post for more information: http://mmcpost.boards.net/thread/1/mmcpost-com-mndpost-introduction
Site 2 may be developed as a Community bank, trust, or credit union for Officers to deposit Community funds prior to disbursal. This Community Trust may be used to cast votes for Officers, provide internal exchange liquidity between MMC community members, and fund Community Projects.
Site 3 may be used with Site 2 to allow a user to submit, store, and retrieve MMC address ownership, chain data, balances, or vote histories from single or multiple wallets. Alternatively, this functionality could be included in Site 2. In that case, Site 3 may be developed as a user-specific content ranking website and/or browser plugin. Program Details
I will disclose budget details, and the community would help to develop address traceability in the BlockChain. Any movement of the funds would be discussed and pre-planned with the forum community. The community and I may fund web development bounties to be awarded to community members.
The current budget plan is to evenly distribute any funds received between three accounts, as follows:
1) Account 1 shall fund the purchase of healthcare.gov payments for myself and my fiance's mother. They may leave the MMC network at any time under my discretion. I shall be responsible for private record requirements and traceability.
2) Account 2 shall fund a personal CEO MMC account under my control. They shall be used as salary and/or to fund personal bounties within the MMC network. The funds may leave the MMC network at any time under my discretion, but are expected to remain mostly within the network. Transfers may be listed after the fact and do not require community pre-approval.
3) Account 3 shall fund a community CEO MMC account under my control. The funds shall be used for tips and community-approved bounties for supporting community developers through mmcpost.com. Transfers shall be pre-approved and/or reviewed by the community.
Communications shall consist of forum and/or blog posts with status updates, daily site updates, and PMs and/or email. Transaction histories shall be available and verifiable in the MMC blockchain.
Work shall begin on configuration and set-up of Site 1. Site specifications for Sites 2 and 3 shall be developed and posted through Site 1 following initial set-up.
