“You have to create a system that’s so viral in its own right the people will adopt it without without being forced to adopt it. You create a new system and you move to the new system so you create a social media platform that everyone wants to be a part of and it can govern itself so well that people want to use the social media governance for more things and that just creeps into use natural a versus saying hey let’s tear down the older and replace it with the new. You you have to organically create something that can live within the current environment and make the older techniques redundant and eventually unnecessary.”
