Great idea on the news site. I've watched coindesk rise in the rankings as they've produced an incredibly in depth resource and capture a lot of eyes, so such a site could eventually get a lot of visitors. My only thought is, if it's entirely DAC focused will we have enough news content to fill out the site?
As far as the 3-4 min weekly round up idea, I'm already on it. I interviewed on video all the core devs in VA last week about the project, what they're working on, etc and am now editing a 3-5 min video out of it, kind of a "behind the scenes with BitShares" video. I'm going to do another in July at the VA tech corporate research center where the team is now focusing operations. That will be a "Summer of Code" video. So while not weekly, it will be monthly. I also got some short updates in Chinese and Russian and I plan to continue to film people using non-english languages as well, so we can share our videos with as wide an audience as possible.... B
I think the round up videos are great, I also love that you're making some Chinese content as they seem to be driving a lot of the PTS volume . (PTS/CNY on BTC38 makes up like 70%+ volume lately.)
I still like the idea of a seperate 3-4 min weekly round up of Bitshares & DAC news for the week, but I realise that even though I suggested you as a presenter in the other thread, as you'll be focusing on marketing and not keeping up to date like BM on daily developments. BM would probably be the better candidate to do that and I'm told he already gives some sort of a weekly summary before the mumble session. (So a 3-5 minute version of that to camera like the Bitcoin weekly roundup on coindesk would be ideal.)
As far as having enough DAC news driven events to fill out the site right now, no. But in 9 months+ definitely.
So I think it's good to start it now and develop it slowly so that we're in the dominant position to be the coindesk of DAC news once it starts taking off.
I'd estimate that there are +-50 articles that could be derived from the Bitshares site that could be put in article format and loaded at one a day that would not seem dated. There are probably a handful of news stories that relate to DAC's every week too. So we could have a site that is worth checking a couple of times a week to start and build from there. (I doubt you guys have the time or resources to handle much more than that atm anyway.)
Possible subjects for articles - Keyhotee, DPOS, Maidsafe, Ethereum, Bitshares, 10 natural laws of DAC universe https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=2876.0
, Significance of Consensus technology https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=2853.0
, What does Blockchain 2.0 mean for Bitshares & other DAC's? , Truthcoin & prediction markets, Counterparty, NXT asset exchange, Sharedrops?, Titan,
Bitsharses music, Tatiana coin, Bitshares X, Bitshares DNS etc.
(That was just a quick skim through the forum but lots of stuff to make articles from that would seem up to date.)
DAC news from crypto currency conventions
Interviews with Bitshares staff, those round up videos you're making all make good article content for a site that could be seen as relevant 'news'.
We could also look at news coming out for crypto-currency in general and refocus a lot of the stories on how they relate to and impact DAC's.
