1:22 Charles reads Vlad's proposal for the Eden Fractal mission statement: Eden Fractal's mission to foster collaboration and build personal connections amongst EOS community members
2:19 Gavriel is joining an Eden Fractal for the first time and he likes the mission statement. He's keen to understand what people in the group are doing to collaborate and where opportunity for collaboration may exist. He's curious to learn about projects of group members, offers to share his work, and asks how do we find collaboration?
3:07 Dan speaks about the Eden Position Paper that Gavriel created with Eden community members
3:43 Marco expands upon Vlad's proposal. He speaks about cultivating individual ventures and helping the EOS ecosystem
7:05 Elias comments on the proposal and says he likes that EOS is included in the mission statement
8:29 Gnome is joining Eden Fractal for the first time and introduces himself. He is a long-timer builder in the community and operates a block producer called EOS Titan. He is also a lead developer of the EOS Network who is pioneering faster block production and IBC with UX. Lennie mentions that he also works with Vigor 2.0.
11:57 Charles shares updates about his work with EOS Support, EOS Respect, preparations for Eden Elections, and podcast about fractal democracy and More Equal Animals
16:38 Perry commented on following Eden Telegrams channels. He joined the group a bit late and the group discussed how to proceed.
17:50 Dan shares recent work publishing videos for meetings 27 and 28, promoting Lennie's recap, refining EdenFractal.com, making 2 topic proposals, and making a video about the mission of Eden
22:47 Elias comments on Eden discussions, shares thoughts about the purpose of Eden Fractal, and shows updates on UnTruth.io.
26:33 Eric is livestreams on Mondays and hosting meetings on Saturdays about fractal consensus. He's taking what we learn at Eden fractal and launching it in an art community next month.
30:33 Vlad focused on building a web app for ZEOS fractal. There are new features will be able to be used at Eden Fractal and other communities. He also proposed a mission of Eden fractal to foster collaboration and build personal connections
34:21 Lisa comments on the importance of decentralized governance, supporting creators with technology, and AI engagement
39:54 Perry supports Vlad's work with ZEOS and asks Lisa how situated with the EOS ecosystem
40:45 Lisa responds and shares some of her background
46:33 Perry asks Eric about the Fallbrook Art Association
50:28 Charles responds explains the audio book on More Equal Animals
1:10:45 Michael joined EF for the first time and shares a bit about his first experience at meeting. It's a bit confusing but likes the composition and ideas
1:11:15 Gnome shared a little confusion as well, suggests it would be a good idea for short summary for people who join Eden Fractal for the first time
1:22:23 Dan thanks Gnome and Michael for feedback and will consider making a summary. Then he starts discussion about Vlad's mission proposal and two other topic proposals
1:14:34 Vlad explains mission proposal and the Vlalendas game. He provides reasons for the proposal: Eden Fractal's mission to foster collaboration and build personal connections amongst EOS community members
1:19:05 Marco thinks we should let it linger for a week or two, asks what does this mission statement change and mentions an action statement 1:22:04 Eric loves mission statements and thinks it’s great to attract people, but it needs to add the why and how to foster collaboration
1:23:33 Perry appreciates the broad mission. He believes the most compelling use case for Eden Fractal is to hold keys to social media groups. EOS community chats are controlled by some people who aren’t participating
1:26:37 Dan encourages everyone can make a proposal on consortium, shares link. Comments on social media groups: Dan Larimer owns Edens members chat and Felix owns discord, but neither are participating. Luka is building automated telegram bot
1:29:17 Perry thinks Eden fractal offers counter balance and media control should be at Eden fractal
1:30:35 Elias says Telegram is not meant to be decentralized and asks how could you make telegram work for decentralization
1:31:11 Perry responds: the same way Dan envisioned multiple chains determining their own future, but then cooperating within a group. Fractal participation is a step towards decentralization.
1:33:58 Dan jumps in and reminds about hand raising. He answers Elias' question about decentralized telegram using Web3. He mentions Lovejoy's comments about Matrix and CryptPad, then shifts focus to Vlad's proposal
1:36:17 Elias is thinking about purpose of Eden group and mentions that EdenElections.com has a mission statement. The mission statement is very broad and doesn’t mention action.
1:39:04 Charles comments that eden elections occur every 3 months. Our amazing strength is networking and collaborating. Weekly meetings add value and strength.
1:41:07 Gavriel wants to make a proposal into Eden Fractal about a code of conduct. Another would be to use sociocratic guidelines. Vlad's proposal seems broad but very good. Different direction could be additional proposals. Get into rhythm of passing many proposals.
1:44:47 Dan thanks Gavriel for comments and responds to question on Gavriel's tech issue with Consortium
1:45:53 Marco disagrees with rushing a mission statement vote. Eden Fractal is helping Eden
1:49:53 Eric thinks a mission statement is valuable and asks what happens? How would world be different with our mission?
1:50:30 Dan likes that Vlad's proposal focuses on short term.
1:51:59 Gavriel replied to Eric: Vlad had definition of proposal in 3 points as to the why
1:52:41 Marco comments about digital value byproducts
1:54:47 Eric: values are worthless if it doesn't impact behavior. Mission statement should say why it’s important and give ideas on how to direct.
1:57:58 Dan responds that fostering collaboration and building relationships is a good mission in itself. Agrees that more specific mission could be added. Vlads proposal in itself is valuable. Shared responses to proposal in chats. Generally Dan thinks Vlad's proposal is great, creates a nice balance. Can always be refined in future. Mentioned James Mart’s article on Mutually Benefitting from Misaligned Goals
2:01:09 Perry comments that his suggestion was not incompatible with Vlad's proposal. Compelling use case in shaping social media.
2:04:30 Vlad comments: the reason of why is because the result of collaboration is self explanatory. If people collaborate, stuff gets built. We could iterate. He likes quicker proposal approval to be more productive.
2:06:28 Elias doesn’t think collaboration is the right word and feels collaboration is not occurring. The common goal is community
2:09:27 Dan responds to Elias on collaboration comment and reminds people to elect delegates who will attend
2:10:56 Gavriel adds to the sociocracy election process. First round clarification, proposer addresses gaps, then reaction round, objection round, causing no harm, final round integration round then if no objection it can pass. He will propose this when he gets access to consortium to help increase efficiency.
2:13:32 Vlad highlight the clarification and the point about causing no harm. We could accelerate the process.
2:15:03 Dan reads chat comments, summarizes some of Eric's points, and reminded that everyone can make topic proposals proposal link in consortium. Then we wrap it up!
Eden Fractal 29
After a fun game of Eden+Fractal, the group plays Vlalendas for the first time and explores a foundational topic proposed by Vlad: What is the mission of Eden Fractal?
