March is often known as "mad-march" in Adelaide. That is due to the fact that there are numerous festivals all ocurring at the same time, making the city a very busy place to be. Not to busy for Steem meet ups, though.
Adelaide is located in South Australia, and it is the Steem Capital of Australia - and possibly the Southern Hemisphere, with a meet up every last Thursday of the month at The Jade, on Flinders St.
A New Member Approaches!
Last night, we welcomed (officially) our newest Adelaide steemian to the chain, @crohnschick. You should definitely check out her posts. She's documenting her journey with Crohn's Disease, and her many other talents including her photography, art, and writing.
Here's proof that she's real, pictured alongside me and @lordnigel
What we're up to: Onboarding
There's a lot of great benefits and initiatives going on around the Steem blockchain - but it is time to get more serious about onboarding people in the real world. I've recently done this with @crohnschick, helping her get an understanding of the different interfaces, the basics of the Steem Economy, and I'll let her speak for the benefits of my tutelage herself.
Stepping this up, and enabling us to recruit more people locally, and train them in the ways of Steem is something that @mattclarke, @o07 and I are very passionate about. As my fiance @ursa reminds me - "We can't turn cryptocurrency people into awesome content creators, we need to turn awesome content creators into cryptocurrency people".
So that's what I have in the works.
Patient zero, @crohnschick survived my "death by powerpoint" which I've prepared earlier. Here are some slides. I'd love to hear feedback from the community about these. Thank you to @minismallholding for providing some great feedback last night, as well as @lordnigel!
The next batch of content will be in regards to powering up, the most important thing to do on the blockchain! :)
Other Adelaide Projects!
Our @frogcake initative is incredibly stable, and has encouraged white listed users to regularly engage with content on the blockchain.
More on boarding. I also have a witness server in my view - which will become a steadfast reality once Steemit Inc get MIRA up and running and into the full production environment. This should also increase the decentralisation of the Steem blockchain.
If you've ever fancied a trip to Adelaide, South Australia, you must schedule it towards the end of a month. You should keep your Thursday evening free, and make your way to The Jade on Flinders St.
There, Steemians gather in numbers, to help, support, and engage one another in a grassroots community fashion. We're fast friends here - and keen to share our knowledge of the Steem blockchain.
We wish you all the best until next month! :)
