There is the main title/question (“What is SSI?”) but I think there is also a subtext as well:

What role does or should “SSI jargon” be encouraged/discouraged?
…for which types of audiences
…which types of communication/documentation
…at this point along the curve of SSI adoption/social evolution

This type of discussion also ties in nicely we evolve from being wanderers to explorers to a clan, a band, a tribe, and ultimately, a tribal society.

Naturally, I prefer more/a lot of precision …as early as possible …at least for the audiences of interest to me.

Food for thought,
Michael

All,

Is there community interest in continuing the "what is SSI?" discussion, debate style (point, rebuttal, counterpoint, rebuttal), at a future CCG meeting? A little in the style of the "What's in a Wallet" sessions. I would ask that we start from a newbie introduction perspective and baby-step toward the specific nuances and disagreements. This could be an illuminating and entertaining experience for all.

Thoughts community?
