This Friday at 3pm ET, I’m hosting an AMA with @eugene in this channel! He’s an incisive student of tech, authoring classics like Status as a Service and Seeing like an Algorithm. Ask him about social networks, consumer product, and insights from his years as a product exec at Oculus, Hulu, and Flipboard!

1) is Warpcast too skeumorphic to Twitter? 2) re: "Seeing Like an Algorithm," what are the most important primitives for a network like Farcaster to "see" quality feedback?

1) I think that's okay for now. It's easier to gain adoption when you're not 100% novel in the beginning. But over time, I'd love to see more of a shift away from the base Twitter UI to fix some of its inherent flaws. I loved Twitter, but no one should pretend it was a successful business.

The base primitives of feedback in social are likes, comments, retweets (are they called recasts here?). But there are downvotes, too, karma in Reddit (which act like another tier of likes), custom emoji reactions, etc. And then TikTok showed the value of capturing dwell time, abandons, repeat watch count, etc.

2) I'd first define what quality means, then set a target, then design to measure it at the right level of precision. In any evolutionary system, you'll want to choose what you select for. To select for that thing(s), you have to be able to see it.
