Topic: Use Cases
16:20:28 [manu]
16:26:58 [manu]
Manu provides update on use cases document... basic structure is there. We need to start filling out sections.
16:27:24 [manu]
manu: We have a list of use cases, but many of them were proposed by people that are not showing up to the call.
16:27:43 [manu]
marta: yes, we need to put in use cases that have active participation. Working on Google Doc is a good way to go about this.
16:28:12 [manu]
mountie: From China, accessing Google Docs or Facebook is restricted. We have to choose another way.
16:28:59 [manu]
mountie: We show changes through mailing list...

marta: I can take an action to send snapshots out once every week of the current state of the document.
16:29:37 [manu]
mountie: I will try to pull the initial document to Blockchain CG homepage to collect information.
16:32:56 [manu]
manu: We may want to focus on getting more use cases in there and not as much on the rest of the document right now.
16:33:14 [manu]
manu: For example, not clear to me what the roles are yet.
16:33:24 [manu]
mountie: Are roles technologies or people?
16:33:45 [manu]
Manu: We've tried to focus on people and the things they want to accomplish, so people... not things like user agents or blockchain nodes.
16:34:24 [manu]
ACTION: Manu to detail several use cases in the document.
16:35:29 [mountie]
manu is disconnected.
16:36:57 [manu]
marta: ... the way we think about blockchain applications has to be different from what we think about today.
16:38:31 [manu]
mountie: I'll send out document links
16:39:16 [manu]
