We present Synereo, a next-gen decentralized and distributed social network designed for an attention economy. Our presentation is given in two chapters. Chapter 1 presents our design philosophy. Our goal is to make our users more effective agents by presenting social content that is relevant and actionable based on the user’s own estimation of value. We discuss the relationship between attention, value, and social agency in order to motivate the central mechanisms for content flow on the network. Chapter 2 defines a network model showing the mechanics of the network interactions, as well as the compensation model enabling users to promote content on the network and receive compensation for attention given to the network. We discuss the high level technical implementation of these concepts based on the π-calculus the most well known of a family of computational formalisms known as the mobile process calculi.
