2:00 Lennie suggests dates should be added to videos for better accountability
2:40 Dan agrees and will add dates in show notes. Shares screen to show up coming proposals. Gavriel’s proposal about Sociocratic Governance is most popular. Dan made several proposals and Perry also is making a proposal.
The group splits into 2 breakout rooms!
9:25 Vlad’s focusing on smart contracts for ZEOS fractal and explains how he’s improving decentralized cooperation with many exciting new features

37:30 Marco shares his work on an end of year article covering fractally genesis, Eden fractal, and more

1:12:52 Gavriel responds to Elias: Hypha uses holocracy derivative of sociocracy.

1:37:17 Dan mentions the meeting starting next by Reiki, which most of community plans on attending
The main topic of discussion was Gavriel’s proposal to use the basics of Sociocratic Governance meetings for proposal discussions in Eden Fractal. There were also 5 other topics proposed that we did not have time to discuss this week. You can see all of these topics and proposals below.
Use the basics of Sociocratic Governance meetings for proposal discussions in Eden Fractal
Consent Decision Making - Sociocracy For All
In an autocratic system, one or a few people make a decision. Autocracy is a very simple way of making a decision (at least in the short run). It is also fast. However, a clear challenge of autocratic systems is a very low level of participation and inclusion.
Make Good Decisions Faster: Move from Consensus to Consent | By Gustavo Razzetti
Making perfect decisions is impossible, especially in times of unprecedented change. Smart organizations realize that a single leader can't have all the answers - they need to tap into the collective wisdom to find what's best for the company. However, building consensus takes a long time and usually ends up with mediocre solutions.
Governance Meetings - Holacracy
Check-In This round is a space for every participant to call out any distractions and get present for the meeting. Everyone speaks, one at a time. Administrative Concerns (Not included in Constitution Version 5.0) A simple space to triage any administrative and logistical issues to take into account for the meeting.
TP31- Eden Fractal’s mission is to foster collaboration, create public goods, and build personal connections amongst EOS community members
TP31 - MISSION PROPOSAL: To foster an open and collaborative environment of the community, preventing its capture by centralization using technology and processes, to decentralize control of our communal spaces.
T31 - Should we initiate an Eden Fractal Participant Agreement with simple clauses to ensure that everyone speaks English, explicitly consents that videos are shared publicly, and understands the timing of events?
(Patrick made a great point that this proposal was not worded correctly. Sorry for any confusion, will improve in the future!)
How do we cooperate after playing Eden+Fractal? We approved 3 proposals to optimize post-breakout room meetings, set moderator guidelines, and elect a moderator! Voilà! 👌🏽🎄
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?
Is Eden Fractal's mission to foster collaboration and build personal connections amongst EOS community members? Talented newcomers join the Eden+Fractal games then we play cagendas and discuss Vlad's new proposal! 🙌🏽
