Examples would be node setup & on-boarding review vlog post, bi-weekly twitter update, medium review of on-going node operational process, etc. Twice a month I can tweet about the work of the node. I can record a video once a month. Also, to whet the interest of new users, I can create and post memes on my twitter.
    Would you be interested in helping to lead the development of the next xx network community? Yes
    Why do you want to run a node in the xx network
    • To protect private personal communication around health and lifestyle issues from mass surveillance and abuse by centralized organizations
    • To contribute to a promising project
    • To undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies
    • To reverse the political centralization of legal, police, and military organizations which favor the wealthy and powerful
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit?
    As best as you can given currently available information, please describe the value proposition of the xx network platform and how it differs from other current blockchain solutions.
    Privacy by Default is a goal of the xx network Platform. In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet? Because at the present time the government is trying to control all structures and individuals who are trying in one way or another to go against the interests of actively developing autocrats, who prioritize their own interests. That turns into repression and inhibition of development.
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems?

    Overall I think this is fine (I’d like to see the node hosted at home)
