We really are on a mission to build the most truthful and kind corner on the internet.
WE ARE ON A MISSION
To accomplish our mission and keep our rivers of truth and love free from pollutants like misinformation, spam, poor-quality-of-writing, and hate, we rely on samurais.
Samurai leaders to be precise.
morality, loyalty, compassion
Bushido, a code of honor and morals developed by the Japanese samurais, lists eight virtues of a good samurai. Dividing them into three broad categories, they are:
self control, courage
politeness, sincerity and respect
Do you feel you have these eight qualities and the desire to do something meaningful with your time and life? Yes?
The idea is quite simple. Our members write plenty of content on os.me and as we build our outreach, this content is only going to grow. But, not all content is worthy of your time. As they say, what is written without effort is read without pleasure. We want to ensure that every piece of writing on os.me is meaningful, insightful and worth our members’ time. The Samurai Council will ensure just that and more.
Each Samurai will own an idea on os.me and have the autonomy to steer it, build it, and regulate it.
