Open Decentralized Society is a project that aims at creating a Wikipedia that takes trust relations between users into consideration. It wants to create a wiki that will have different articles for each subject, articles that would be ranked based on the person who is viewing them and his trust relations. Each trust link will also have semantic meaning.
Each person will try to certificate which person is a doctor, which person is a software engineer, and for each semantic meaning there will be a different graph.

It is important to note that there will not be a global ranking. You could think of it as if everyone is a seed of trust for himself.

This project is in its infancy. My intention is to create a community that will implement those features on mediawiki.

If you are a freedom proponent. If you believe that the flow of information should be free, join me in creating the next Wikipedia. The project needs funding, peer-reviewing, programmers, security experts, lawyers.
