TEC Working Groups Weekly Update, August 28

Saturday, August 28, 2021

:school_satchel: September semester! At the TEC, we consider offering and supporting education one of our core cultural practices. Classes are soon starting! This September, come to the TEC Lab if you are interested in better understanding Proposal Invertors, Market Models and/or NFT Economies. And if you are keen to learn and promote conflict resolution techniques in your life or your community, come to Gravity for the next round of Graviton training.

:point_right:t4: Spotlight: For our Community Call Spotlight this week, we had Petr present his project Upala, a price of forgery proof of personhood. Did you miss it? No problem! Watch it now.

:hatching_chick: Reminder for Hatchers: claim your POAP here and your exclusive Hatch t-shirt from the TEC Swag shop! If you participated in the Hatch, you were airdropped one SWAGTEC to cover the cost of the t-shirt and shipping.
