Many thank Billy Maddocks for your feedback. I’m glad to see that this topic resonates even if our takes on the moneyless future diverge.
The leading social networks, at least at present, don’t have robust mechanisms to deal with fake accounts; and so the trolls and the bots roam free… I can post, retweet, like, and comments as I please. For someone that can be 2–3 a retweets day, but someone else it could be 200–300…
While I don’t speak for Nimses, what I understand they are offering is a better authentication protocol and some level of sanity around likes and shares. One has to “pay” with one’s nims to “like” a post.
Surely, this doesn’t address the questions you are raising (i.e. I’d rather have 50 years of amazing life than 100 of average), but it’s interesting to see how those ideas will impact our broader social media landscape and what new expectations they may set.
