# Link: 🏕️ DWeb debrief: 10 new apps for groups & communities.

I love seeing how different apps are approaching community building, and this list is great!

> Hylo is an up & coming community platform with a powerful ‘holonic’ structure that enables coordination within and across groups. It’s run as a non-profit so they don’t have built-in incentives to design for addiction, and their code base is fully open-source.

I like the idea of having communities that can then share and connect with a larger group. It's unfortunate that it's not decentralized like some of the ones below, but it also looks more mature.

> Futureproof, Neighbourhoods, and We are three separate projects building decentralized community platforms with high levels of community-control and modularity.

I was unaware of Holochain[1] but it's interesting, it reminds me of scuttlebutt but with more of a focus on giving non-tech folks the benefit of a distributed environment. I tried setting up a group with We and it seems simple enough: not many applets yet, but already I can see why I'd rather use a tool like this to organize, rather than a cloud-hosted service.

> Group Income is a brand new product from the non-profit OkTurtles that makes it easy for groups of friends & communities to create a basic income for themselves among one another. [2]

This is a really cool idea! It seems a bit sparse in details as it's being built up, but I'll keep an eye on this, as it has a lot of potential to change how groups of friends can organize and create a better economic safety net.

There's a few other good projects in the post, but I still have to go through them and try the services. Definitely check them all out!

# Incomplete thoughts on cognitive diversity

I'm currently reading about the ways in which cognitive diversity leads to better problem solving, and methods through which we can make this effect larger.

One of the results that I've found more interesting is by Kevin J. S. Zollman [1]: limiting information can lead to more accurate results. "Bad Information" tends to spread less in networks with more restricted connections, while networks that are highly connected tend to be much faster.

I can the slow-but-accurate model is preferable in long-term foundational projects or strategic decisionmaking, while the highly connected one works when we want to address experiments quickly (even converging multiple times and testing different hypotheses).

I'd like to try some of these networks and see how well it works in practice.
