Hello, boys.

Before this begins to get heated: I seem to remember being the guy who first objected to James on the CFC. I trust J a lot.....but his presence on the CFC could open us and him up to all kinds of accusations about conflicts of interest, as well as being a distraction from SuperNET.  ;)
Having said that, I'm not going to rule that J can't stand for the CFC, even if I think it's a bad idea.

I do agree with J in broad principle: setting all the money aside for core devs is a good idea, and will benefit every member of the community.
But we'll still need a Committee to administer the dev payments........

Some NXT should be allocated for unforeseen expenses, and some would be also useful for effective marketing.
60:20:20 split, (devs, expenses, marketing) sounds good to me.

And Nxt is certainly more than an open source platform. It has a marketcap, it's used as a currency. If Ethereum or BTC or Bitshares or Counterparty spend money on marketing, and Nxt doesn't, Nxt will be at a disadvantage. There's no point spending all the money on the technology and then find out that everyone is using something else.
Yep.
Look at Limux for example.
Great tech.

How many desktop running Linux? Next to nothing.
Microsoft has it all.

The only market share where Linux wins is in the web servers segment, because it's so far better on the most common needs.

Tech is great. If not marketed, it's just not used.

James: Heard of OSI? It was supposed to be the future of Networks. Then TCP/IP arrived. Not better, technically. Just sold better.
OSI wasnt even a technology platform was it? It seemed more a way to make the platforms and TCP/IP is almost an instance that follows OSI, so not sure if it makes much sense to compare the two. TCP/IP violates the OSI guidelines though, cuz it makes it more practical.

Was there some working tech that used OSI? OSI is some committee created layering to allow for independent development of different layers, at least that is my understanding. But there is no OSInetwork. So how can you say that TCP/IP isnt better?

As far as microsoft windows. Really? You are comparing marketing NXT to marketing Windows? MSFT convinced IBM to adopt MS-DOS as the OS for the PC. This was a business deal that gave them an effective monopoly over the OS market with the giant network effect. How much did MSFT spend on marketing to get the DOS deal with IBM? Do you really equate the NXT position now as anything like MSFT situation with DOS?

I claim in these two examples, the solution that had the working tech won. TCP/IP won over OSI, cuz TCP/IP actually worked and had a real network. MSFT got the deal with IBM because they had the tech at the right time.

NXT needs to be presented to the decision makers about crypto platforms. These people are reachable at the right conferences, trade shows, or maybe directly via PM. Any serious decision maker will be studying the tech options available and choose the one that solves their problems the best.

So having better tech, better support engineers (a form of tech) and better tech documentation to help others integrate NXT. This is the things that will help, along with reference implementations of the standard things people will want to do. Again more tech.

James

P.S. NXT is a lot more like TCP/IP in that it isnt some grandiose abstract specification on how things should be done, but like TCP/IP it is a working example that people can build on.

I only resubmitted as I saw that some private groups are asking for just being granted the NXT and this does not seem right at all. So as long as we arent going to just give the funds to private organizations, then I dont need to be in the committee. In fact if people are considering giving funds to some private groups, why not just grant it to me? I have been known to achieve some good results.

James

P.S. We certainly cant do anything that will give anybody a reason to FUD against NXT. After all nobody has done that to NXT yet and we certainly cant survive if people start making the FUD against us.

So to sum up, make sure everyone is on the same page:

Signups:
1. Jones (TECH)
2. FumanChu (COMM)
3. jl777 (TECH) *disputed
4. CFA Consulting (TRES)
5. RudeBoi (TRES) *other thread
6. L8orre (ANYWHERE) *possibly busy
7. EvilDave (CHAIR) *willing
8. Damelon (CHAIR/COMM)

*9. Cassius (SECRETARY) *suggested by EvilDave
*10. neer.g/pouncer (TRES) *suggested by EvilDave

Also speculated that the funds should go to:
1. 50/50 to the already founded committees (NXT ORG/Foundation)
2. all to devs
3. some to devs
4. superbowl ad/something with chocolate
5. send to genesis (destroy)

My favorite idea:
1. Committee is formed somehow
2. Committee uses funds to start up internal (NRS) and external (apps) within the nxt framework
3. Committee monitors these projects and makes sure the funds are used well by these groups
4. Projects that were funded then do their own marketing for their own product
5. Nxt is used as the center, so when that project succeeds, nxt succeeds

This aligns completely with how I think what Nxt is and how it should present itself in the world.

In fact, we both made the exactly the same list ;)

Edit: I will state here that unless someone injects me secretly with a significant amount of forbidden substances, I will not behave like Ballmer.

Yeah, the nasty FUDs make me cry..... ;D

And double yeah: no direct share in the CF to Nxt Foundation or Nxt Organisation. They can apply for funds like any one else.....as can you, J.  :D

+1440 on this from James and Damelon, btw.

You got me. I cheated and just used your list, cuz it made a lot of sense

There is a big gap between what the core does and useful reference applications.
Let us think like a chip developer. Clearly the actual silicon chip is needed. However, a chip without the application notes (a specific use case that actually does something useful) is usually not adopted much. Also having up to date tech docs helps, but the most helpful are the application notes that go as far as provide a circuit diagram (and machine readable so you can just send it off to be manufacturered), along with required firmware, etc.

The companies still need to worry about stuff like what type of box to put it in, how much to skimp on the power supply, the color of the case, cooling fans, and marketing. But they can take a black box ready to go and customize it (or not)

This is why MS is so cool. It is just a small step away from those websites that say "send us 1 BTC and we will make a coin for you". With MS, we can just put that page on nxt.org and say, fill in this form and fund the acct with NXT and presto! you have a new coin customized for you.

So by NXT devs, I include the peoples that are making such things, not just the inner guts deep core guys, but without the inner guts deep core guys, there wont be any reference applications to make

Quick question regarding time frame. How soon was everyone hoping to get this new rendition of CFC up and running?

I have some extremely exciting developments in my own adventures as an entrepreneur that may dove tail nicely with an active CFC that can steer development towards opportunities as they emerge.

Well, at the start, neither had nothing actually done. OSI was supposed to be the network platform, and just never saw TPC/IP coming. I am not sure of exactly when TCP/IP won the battle, but as I understand it, neither system had a finished workable solution. It feels like when OSI spent time defining rules, TCP/IP started working in the real world. Both systems had devs, but TCP/IP had more real world applications.

As far as microsoft windows. Really? You are comparing marketing NXT to marketing Windows? MSFT convinced IBM to adopt MS-DOS as the OS for the PC. This was a business deal that gave them an effective monopoly over the OS market with the giant network effect. How much did MSFT spend on marketing to get the DOS deal with IBM? Do you really equate the NXT position now as anything like MSFT situation with DOS?
MS DOS won for the reason you said (which IS marketing, BTW), but that's not all.
Windows won over other potentially technically better systems. OS2, IOS, Novell, etc.
On the software segment, MS sold MSWord which beat Wordperfect which imo was way better in 1995, MS sold MSExcel to beat Lotus, Access to beat DBase, and later IE to beat Netscape.
This all happened because of marketing.

The right time is essential, indeed. But the right time is a combination of market state and market presentation.
I think, for example, that it can be the right time for cyptos because fiat is failing all around the world (market state) AND because we are selling it to companies and their (potential) customers. Both are needed to actually end up in a workable AND used tech.
Technology for smartphones was available years before the first Iphone.
But Jobs made the market appears.

I will concentrate on the NxtOrganization, as I think people can't put in a significant amount of time and work into several businesses/groups/ventures.

Therefore I mostly stay out of this discussion, as people mostly want to benefit themselves.

As far as I remembered, the members are getting paid. How much? How often? Hourly based or project based? Also, there still need to be a vote held on the self nominated members here. Else it would be just a minority (by 1 person, the self nominated user) decision.


For me the best option is the splitting of 25% for NxtOrg, 25% NxtFoundation and 50% for developers held by pouncer and neer.g. New group formations always take a long time until they really take of. The two already established groups (NxtOrg&NxtFound) are here already and working. Why take the risk of another group, which might not work at all?

This is my opinion and not the opinion of the NxtOrg. :)

There's no way jl777 should be excluded. Maybe the SuperNET projects make up a large portion of Nxt projects right now, but that shouldn't necessarily be true going forward. Plus Damelon is on Nxt foundation, maybe they'll be wanting funds. If a Nxt Org member volunteers, they might be wanting funds. Just 1 person out of a committee of 5. Allow the nomination, express concerns and let the voters decide.

Looks like we have enough people now to have a vote anyway, so let's go ahead with this.

I will work without any pay for this.

I am against pre-allocating any funds to any private groups. the committee should evaluate any and all external and internal proposals and decide on a case by case basis.

But if anyone can simply self-nominate and only 8 people did so (so there is no choice), then its also a private group. Isn't it?

Yes the committee. I think it was said in this thread: https://nxtforum.org/general-discussion/new-community-funding-committee/ as EvilDave took a reply to it, possible it was changed afterwards in the OP as it was not a good decision. (dunno)
Also, there still need to be a vote held on the self nominated members here. Else it would be just a minority (by 1 person, the self nominated user) decision.

As I said. I don't believe that "normal" (with a job, family etc.) people can fully dedicate their time on several projects. For example I can only concentrate on one group (NxtOrg) with a good conscience that I will give my all for it.

As for payment of the members was concerned, I believe someone proposed that while they would not be paid directly, they have the potential to receive donations from the community when they do a good job and get things done.
I'm fine with this option, plus if we already have an nxt stake, if the committee does the job correctly, they will make a profit with the raise in price.

This is my opinion and not the opinion of the NxtOrg. :)

I just want to through my 2NXT in.
I appreciate what you are trying to do Berzerk and think you are doing a good job with your group and I think you have good communication/transparency.  I feel like I haven't heard as much from the other group though and would like to.
I understand some people are for NxtOrg and NxtFoundation getting some of the funds and some are against it.  Would it help any, if NxtOrg and NxtFoundation could get up to 25% each of the fund, but they need to outline how they will use the funds first?  (I guess this would be the same as each group applying for funds like everyone has been able to do and go along with what has been said about "any and all external and internal proposals and decide on a case by case basis" )

Personally, I haven't decided if I'm for or against the two groups getting any of the funds.  I would just like to hear if they actually need the funds and if so, how they will use them.

I feel like I haven't heard as much from the other group though and would like to.

You have, you probably just don't realise it :)

You can consider all the work I've done, from videos and interviews, to funding, to putting out bounties on tutorials and features, to speaking in public, to connecting up people to projects, to spearheading fundraisings for people with projects, to pushing some agendas etc. as work for and in the spirit of the Nxt Foundation.

The same goes for the work that EvilDave does, which is much the same, as work for the Foundation as well.

Tai Zen is also a member and all his work as speaker and promotor is the same.

l8orre is also a member, and his work in supporting and helping with dev and technical work (mostly behind the scenes) is also Foundation work.

chanc3r is one of the major forces in auditing code in our community and that work also falls under what the Foundation feels is necessary.

We five are the current members, and the reason we are far less visible is that we do not act as a "group" per se, but play to our strengths, while still working to a common agenda. :)
http://nxtfoundation.org/

I've already put up my agenda a few posts earlier and I believe it reflects the way we have been working for the past 6 months. Not for quick results or even nice price rises, but for long term sustainability with the knowledge that increased value eventually will be reflected in the price anyway.

Sorry about that Damelon.  Sometimes I only have a chance to quickly look at the most recent forum posts and miss a few.
I think what helps with NxtOrg is that they have this: https://nxtforum.org/nxt-organization/ with the weekly update posts happening recently, they have stuck in my mind.

You have done a lot of work for NXT, it's my own fault, but I forgot you were a part of the Nxt Foundation  :o

Tai Zen has done a lot too.  I do miss these: https://nxtforum.org/news-and-announcements/nxt-community-development-update-19-%2811-01-2014%29-the-nxt-evolution/
That may just be me though

Hope I didn't offend you at all
