A Holochain hApp that is built using the Applet Module Interface provided by Neighbourhoods framework, that is also employing reusable UI assessment widgets following the standards provided by the framework.
The UI component used for making assessments on a specific dimension, for a specific resource. For instance, it can be a +1 or Like button that is displayed by a post or todo item in an applet.
Community activators are the real creators of Neighbourhoods. Whether a single leader or a DAO-like group acting in concert, community activators create sets of generic tools to pair with intentional design of reputation and culture. Community activators and whole Neighbourhoods benefit from data portability across the distributed web by deciding to bridge to other Neighbourhoods.
In all likelihood, community activators seek technical tools to promote group coordination, resource sharing, and advancement of common interests in communities.
A data set is a list of assessments, as hashes. Methods are applied to data sets to return objective assessments, which means publishing a data set as a validation package, or for audit, can increase trust in a given neighbourhood.
A named, ordered range that can receive objective and subjective assessments from neighbourhoods members and from method computation outputs.
Any software groups use to connect with each other, share information, ideas, memories, and goods, and coordinate their actions.
This is an entry point application for any neighbourhood, where users can:
- Create and access their personal Profiles
- Search and join existing neighbourhoods
- Create new neighbourhoods and configure them
- Add applets to a neighbourhood and configure them
- Invite more members and interact with them using applets
- Inspect the Sensemaker Dashboard, gaining cultural insights for the neighbourhood
A method is an algorithm for measuring an objective dimension of a resource, using assessments from other dimensions of the resource as inputs. The result of a method is an objective assessment. While any agent can run a method on a resource, only a community activator, or someone else with designated privileges, can publish the resulting objective assessment for group viewing.
- Applet Module Interface: and interface that must be implemented by all Applets explaining how to render their resources, contexts and assessments
A resource is a data/media item (entry) which users can make sense upon.
An applet must define at least one resource view.
The main engine for calculating social computations in neighbourhoods, taking as inputs the social configuration created by the community activator and the many assessments produced by community members, and as outputs, scoring resources according to the defined cultural contexts.
The sensemaker is an internal holochain hApp that is part of the Neighbourhoods framework and made available for applet developers via interaction with the Launcher.
The Dashboard resides in the Launcher and is available to any neighbourhoods member to allow inspection and interaction with the social configuration, by viewing assessments made by other members on any resources mapped by the configuration, switching from existing cultural contexts, and also running existing methods manually (if they have permission to do so).
Social sense-making is social in two ways. First, it is about the social world. It is a process of orienting to people, spaces, scenarios, and representations. For this orientation to occur, the latter need to be defined in some way. Second, it is a social process, which is to say, articulable and/or visible between members of a social group. Individuals use their goals, aims, and desires, conscious or not, to make sense of the social world on their own. For social sense-making to be a group rather than an individual activity, the group must an have apparent, articulable set of common interests, goals, or values. Therefore, when groups pursue sense-making as a common activity, these interests, goals, and values are cultivated, becoming more refined and more actionable in the process.
A subjective dimension is a judgeable quality or character of an entry, expressed as a value in a agent-defined range. It is judged by an agent. Examples include 5-star ratings, upvote/downvotes, and 60 mark scales.
