Please Note: These show notes are an early work in progress and will be updated in the future. Enjoy!
Introducing Tropics, the exciting new Cagendas game that simplifies the agenda architecture for real-time coordination during Eden Fractal events! Check out the full article on edencreators.com/tropics for all the details. Tropics is a follow-up to the 'Future of Cagendas' episode, where the group brainstormed ideas to improve the topics proposal flow. Join the fun and sync up for creative collaboration! 🌺 🦒
The mini-game agenda helps participants suggest topics and vote on them in real-time using the Slido app. The game is meant to simplify the agenda architecture of the topic process and empower users to suggest upvote on topics in real-time. The Tropics game is introduced at 0:08, and later on discussed in-depth, alongside Notion, starting at 59:41 with a brief conclusion at 2:11:25.
Notion is used to support the Tropics mini-game so other participants can write topics, which are then transferred to the Slido app. Notion’s workflow, set up process and user access is discussed widely from 59:41 - 1:28:26. Dan and the team demonstrate how the Tropics game work at 1:28:26 - 1:37:54. This is followed up by a group discussion on security risks and use cases at 1:39:01 - 1:45:32.
During the mini-game Tropics, Respect Trees gets chosen by players as the topic with most upvotes at 1:48:12. Respect Trees are a new primitive that uses community respect points with a simple tree structure to organize group thoughts, track priorities, achieve shared goals. This concept’s article was initially presented during Eden Fractal 60 at 1:05:19 by Tadas.
Some recent updates in process are that Dan is working on a Respect Trees article, whilst Rosmari works on the release of the latest DEFS episode, which would uncover more details on Respect Trees with a special guest, the builder himself - Tadas! 👷🏼♂️🔧
We also touch up on more exciting topics, such as the Gitcoin GG18 at 1:45:32, EOS pausing their funding program for Pomelo with a last season funded during 44:00, Eden On EOS group discussions at 1:56:29 and a quick background overview on Cagendas and Consortium at 2:06:12.

Tropics is a new Cagendas mini-game, which helps to coordinate community topics from within a database
How will we share the greatest story of all time? We step into the arena to play Cagendas, a social coordination game that helps communities sync up for creative collaboration! 🥁 🌎 ✨
How can communities coordinate to maximize mutual benefit? We draw inspiration from fractals in nature and explore Respect Trees, an elegant primitive for collaborative thought, prioritization, and action! 🎬
