Trickle is a community of curious people who are enthusiastic about knowledge and learning. Interacting with other users is part of the learning experience.
Users can provide feedback, rate, and comment on drips and streams . They can discuss the stream materials with other learners. They can add new sources and suggest edits to a stream. This way streams are always evolving and getting better due to the input from the community.
Drips can be created by several contributors including researchers, writers, editors, and the users who provide feedback. So in some cases, there is no single author of a drip. We use the term author to identify the owner of the drip — the person who is accountable or the quality of the content and for ensuring it stays up to date.
If you share a stream with a friend, then that person gets listed as a collaborator on the stream.
Experts are people with specific knowledge about a topic. Experts are frequently mentioned within drips. Quotes are usually attributed to an expert.
