Ok lovely people!
At the first Working group gathered around Milestone 3 we had some tensions being brought forth, as well as a Proposal by @markflowfarm for next week’s working group: Milestone 3 Proposal (from July 29 meeting)
You’ll find the tensions below, but I’d like to suggest 2 things
- To everyone who brought a tension to the working group: please create a dedicated forum post on it
- Follow this model, please : SEEDS RE Change Proposals - Google Docs
The model is basically :
- Open discussion in RE Discourse Forum
→ follow the “Tension – Proposal – Contradiction” model*
→ Inspire someone to lead if you’re not going to lead it
- Bring proposal to SEEDS forum (in the Passport) and engage Citizens
- Upgrade proposal integrating potential feedback
Here are the tensions from today:
Tension 1: Hypha Milestone 3 didnt pass, Citizens wanted more clarity on what is ready to grow and less buggy tools
Tension 2: Seeds sale slowed down, and other orgs like Samara, MBC and RE didn t have an incentive to indicate people to buy from the sale as it was only benefiting Hypha.
Tension 3: SEEDS Global DAC voting is receiving a log of negative feedback, people say its too hard to vote and read all proposals, and do due dilligence
Tension 4: other Global SEEDS Organizations (Samara, MBC, RE) are looking for funding, and Hypha is maybe not ready or willing (at the time) to fund and finance them
@markflowfarm 's reply
Reply to Tension 4, the phrase “not ready or willing”.
Hypha does not have enough money in the treasury to provide working capital funding to all the orgs for SEEDS. So, new monies must arrive to support the full SEEDS ecosystem growth needs. Hypha is working on that funding, of course. The full evolving community is really part of that whole process: growing the movement, welcoming in the working capital, and sharing the proceeds to support the work and journey together.
@nila (oh, gotta get her on the Forum!) brought this up:
“I feel each tension merits its own proposal, not just here but anywhere there is a tension, it deserves its own acknowledgement and resolution.”
As well as the relevant question “What makes an organization? What are the MVQualifiers for becoming one?”
@Joao proposed that we guide the ‘splitting of the milestone’ as a “whole, focused on what SEEDS has to do and how much we want to give to Pilots, etc…”
