''' 2011


2030 '''

TO THIS GREAT AND FREE NATION OF CANADA : Grandparents, Parents, Students, Professors and Teachers, I honor a challenge.'' Let's see if the Technologist, Social Scientists and Dreamers, can conceptualize : 'Club!WOW!Clap'.

ON THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY - most respectfully and lovingly called !WOW! the entire world over : The Ecosystem 2011 is also the exclusive and eternal ownership of every student in the world. OneShare-Peace- Honor.

THE SHIFT : To the enlightened and the initiated students of the entire world have been spending a lot of time on 'Club !WOW! House' recently, and getting to figure and understand the - parallels to the early, hypergrowth days of those earlier generations social networks are uncanny. The 11-month-old app's popularity - it has more than 10 million users, and invitations are selling for up to $125 on eBay -

Has set off a mad dash among investors, who have valued the company at $1 billion. Celebrities including Elon Musk, Oprah Winfrey and Joe Rogan have shown up in Clubhouse rooms, adding to the buzz. And the app is spawning competition from Twitter and Facebook, which are experimenting with similar products.

TO be fair, there are some important structural differences between Clubhouse and existing social networks. Unlike Facebook and Twitter, which revolve around central, algorithmically curated feeds, Clubhouse is organized more like Reddit -

A cluster of topical rooms, moderated by users, with a central ''hallway'' where users can browse rooms in progress. Clubhouse rooms disappear after they're over, and recording a room is against the rules [although it still happens] which means that ''going viral'' in the traditional sense, isn't really possible.

Users have to be invited to a room's ''stage'' to speak and moderators can easily boot unruly or disruptive speakers, so there's less risk of a civilized discussion being hijacked by trolls. And Clubhouse doesn't have ads, which reduces the risk of profit-seeking mischief.

EVERY successful social network has a life cycle that goes something like this : !WOW!, this app sure is addictive! Look at all the funny and exciting ways people are using it! Oh, look, I can get my news and political commentary here, too!

This is going to empower dissidents, promote free speech and topple authoritarian regimes! Hmmm, why are trolls and racists getting millions of followers? And where did all these conspiracy theories come from?

This platform should really hire some moderators and fix its algorithms, !WOW!, this place is a cesspool; I'm deleting my account.

What's remarkable about Clubhouse is that it seems to be experiencing this entire cycle all at once, during its first year of existence.

I started using Clubhouse last fall. At the time, the app seemed to be dominated by the typical early -adopter types - tech workers, venture capitalists, digital marketing gurus - along with a sizable contingent of Black influencers and a number of ''heterodox'' internet figures who mostly used the platform to complain about the mainstream media and go on tedious rants about cancel culture.

From the start, there were signs that Clubhouse was speed-running the platform life-cycle. Weeks after starting, it ran into claims that it was allowing harassment and hate speech to proliferate, including large rooms where speakers allegedly made anti-Semitic comments.

But with all of the above said, there are still plenty important similarities. Like other social networks.

Clubhouse has a number of ''discovery'' features and aggressive growth-hacking tactics meant to draw new users deeper into the app, including algorithmic recommendations and personalized push alerts, and a list of suggested users to follow.

Those features, combined with Clubhouse's ability to form private and semiprivate rooms with thousands of people living in them, create some of the same bad incentives and opportunities for abuse that have hurt other platforms.

The app's reputation for lax moderation has also attracted a number of people who have been barred by other social networks, including figures associated with QAnon, Stop the Steal and other extremist groups.

Clubhouse has become a home for people who are disillusioned with social media censorship and critical of various gatekeepers.
