Spent time this week listening over previous meeting, inspired by Eric’s statement of vision. Curated some of what Eric said and James mart article. Shares screen about article that he wrote on mission and vision, dan sees how the vision can interact with the mission. Reads out bullet points of article, how the vision plays a huge part in the mission. Goes into more details about the article. Interested to hear what everyone thinks
1:23:23 Eric comments about key parts of the vision, when it’s easily understandable. The other thing it should be clear who your helping and solving. Mission is what do we need to do to get there. Curse of knowledge probably biggest danger, we assume people get it because we get it
1:26:17 Perry has his response to the vision, speaks on his interpretation of eos constitution. Thinks pieces are coming together. Chris Barnes is taking initiative to take on arbitration and Joshua Seymour us taking the idea of tying together communities. Also sees this here at Eden fractal, Lennie , Dan , Patrick all coming together as three states. Sees Judicial branch in dgov, Legislative branch in power of policy with what Joshua’s is creating and see it here an opportunity to create an estate of the press. Suggests we become the group that promotes and facilitates for the press. Pushing for Dnews to make simple step, connection between decision making body and media. How would it work, gives his ideas.
1:34:26 Dan jumps in , reminds everyone about telegram chat , move on to hear others comments on vision
1:35:29 Douglas gives his definition of vision, one vision is an idealized version of the world. Mission becomes what you hope to do to accomplish, then foundation which are core beliefs. What is the world we want to create, what is the common desire. How can we make it one sentence where it’s communicable
1:37:49 Eric thinks what Douglas said is right on, what to we have to do to get as far as we can to getting there. Doesn’t see the problem to solve that Perry has mentioned
1:39:08 Perry and Eric discuss Perry’s idea the problem need solving, is to keep a check on power. Eric thinks it needs to be more specific to this community
1:40:38 Dan reads out comments from chats. Vision idea can help inspire each other. Moving on to next topic , the Eden fractal participant agreement.
1:44:00 Dan shares screen on Eden fractal participant agreement. This is a proposal so we could potentially pass it. Joe asks Dan, going back to vision, if there is a timeline for it to be set. Dan said there is no timeline, several members that want to prioritize mission, but nothing set yet. Dan shares screen on participation agreement,. Agreement is a basic version, read and speak in english, consent to record and share recorded meetings, acknowledge all videos will remain public. Wants to put it in software and see how it works. We want to make agreement simple. Planning to start a telegram start up group. If delegates want to vote, Dan could put topic in telegram.
1:48:43 Joe thinks it sounds reasonable, good idea.
1:49:26 Tadas thanks Dan for proposing, he supports this agreement. Thinks it’s important. Requirement for consent to be recorded is important
1:50:10 Perry asked Dan if he was going to share the link
1:50:38 Lennie says he would abstain in his vote because there are a few fundamentals, for instance what are the vote numbers
1:51:07 Dan responded he asked Tadas. As Tadas is the original creator of Eden plus fractal process. Tadas replies 2/3 is the vote. Sees the participation agreement to protect each other from liabilities. Doesn’t need to include rules for how we do stuff. Lennie commented we don’t have the fundamentals, thinks we should set that first. Tadas asks Lennie to clarify his fundamental questions.
1:54:47 Dan shares telegram screen to show how it could be voted on, this could making voting more efficient. Dan clarifies the participation agreement, the proposal is to set an agreement action.
1:56:53 Patrick votes no on this agreement because it’s not a good moment to pass, thinks it should brainstorm this. Not sure about agreeing to all recording. Too much that’s not clear.
1:59:39 Dan thinks discussing at next brainstorming session could be a good option.
1:59:52 Perry appreciates the desire to begin creating a set of bylaws. Supports that effort but thinks the principles, values and vision sound be decided first. uestions Patrick on moving participation agreement discussion to brainstorming, he is opposed to that
2:02:49 Tadas wanted to respond to both Perry and Patrick, he looks at participation agreement differently, he doesn’t think that it should define what we are doing. It should strictly be a document that participants sign before participating to protect themselves and other participants from legal perspective. This is What this particular agreement should serve. To Patrick I would say, that we are voting for these two clauses that may be changed later as needed.
2:04:31 Patrick responds to Tadas that he is aligned with Lennie and Vlad, thinks it should be brainstormed.
2:06:16 Dan clarifies the agreement doesn’t say all participants will be recorded , but it gives more protection to someone like himself who shares the videos, it protects them from liabilities
2:07:32 Joe comments after reading verbiage it didn’t say everyone was going to be posted. Transparency is important, thinks the waive to get rid of the liability is a smart move
2:08:45 Dan comments that as he is the one sharing these videos, if someone has a problem with parts of videos to reach out. Wants to give everyone best experience possible but in general Dan thinks sharing the videos help the community grow more
2:09:23 Patrick shares his proposal, if you create something public good, incentivize mechanisms, rewards. Eden fractal is the catalyst to smart collaboration, using web 3 solutions. That is my mission and vision. Need to find the objectives and grow, good intent good output. Need better delegates.
2:17:42 Rosmari asks Patrick how he envisions collaboration, an idea is using it in notion. It’s good for referencing back. She may consider to majestic a proposal for using notion.
2:19:46 Patrick responds he does a lot of collaboration behind the scene, next Eden fractal interview upcoming, uses mindmap, brainstorming session, need to create collaborative culture
2:25:51 Dan let’s try to wrap it up in 10 min
2:26:54 Perry and Patrick conversation, Perry asks what is the relationship between this proposal and the APIs that he’s suggesting and the proposal that by wire has suggested, any relationship between the two, Patrick responds no relation. It’s using web 3 solution open source. He’s integrating some piece of this into his software. Perry talks about comparison to Patrick’s and bywire proposal.
2:29:45 Dan steps in to clarify Patrick’s proposal, proposal is smart collaboration between verified humans and web 3 solution, no mention of API.
2:30:36 Perry thinks if anyone is paying attention is that bywire is being set up to be driving force, feels honesty is needed, Patrick responds to Perry the proposal he made. Yes he is using API, he has not stated bywire only stated what he is doing for himself.
2:32:59 Dan briefly comments to Perry he will discuss this further on separate call, Dan does not agree with Perry. Moves on to next topic, briefly shows mission screen. Dan proposal our mission is to promote collaboration, create public goods and empower communities. This was inspired by the show he and Vlad did, check out show notes. Goal is to Expand our community beyond eden community. Gives resources and events coming up Go eden fractal!
