No Spotlight this week.

:ear_of_rice: Stewards

  • Sprint 22 has ended and the Commons Upgrade (CU) is days away from becoming a reality
  • Breaking News: listed below are the key dates for the CU except for the “Debate & Rock the Vote” section, which we are now extending to allow for a longer deliberation period:
    • Nov 11 - Nov 18 <— Learn & Propose
    • Nov 19 - 25 <— Propose & Debate
    • Nov 25 - 30 <— Debate & Rock the Vote
    • Dec 1 - 6 <— Stewards Council & Voters pamphlet creation
    • Dec 7 - 13 <— Runoff vote
  • Remember to keep track of the critical pieces of work for our CU through our ZenHub
  • Our Steward WG 3-month Funding Proposal is live on our forum: you’re invited to take a look at it, ask questions, and propose improvements
  • If you missed the previous programs, TE Academy’s Introduction to Token Engineering course will kick off once again on Wednesday Dec. 15 at 9:00am UTC
  • Consider joining us for our Sprint Retrospective and Stewards Council meetings which alternate every Thursday at 1800 CET; and also for our weekly syncs which happen every Wednesday at 1900 CET
  • Forum Highlight: As always, you’ll find many guiding references in our TEC Timeline here, in our TEC Handbook here, and in our TEC Retrospective Miro board, all of which are open for everyone to see. In it we visualize in-house empirical findings: what has gone well, what can be done better, and what specific actions we can take to keep progressing successfully

:dove: Gravity

  • Our ethos is simple: All we are saying is give peace a chance
  • This last week we completed our 2nd Graviton Training!
  • Consider joining us for our Nonviolent Communication (NVC) bookclub, which takes place on Thursdays in the DAO Bookclub server; we are currently on Chapter 9 of Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life by Marshall B. Rosenberg
  • If you believe in what we do, consider supporting our Gitcoin grant
  • Forum Highlight: Here are some important links to consider:

:globe_with_meridians: Commons Swarm

  • We have a new interface ready that’ll allow us to buy and sell tokens directly from our bonding curve

:raised_hands:t4: Soft Gov

  • Our Rewards System initiative is evolving into a WG: here’s what its manifesto currently looks like
  • On that note, we will have a Rewards System Assemblage event on Dec. 10th: a whole day of talks, discussions, and workshops about the Rewards System, hosting leaders from all around the web3 ecosystem
  • The LASERTAG vote is currently active on Snapshot: this proposal will pick a group of 7 people to join a Gnosis Safe multisig with the purpose of executing the terms of all proposals that specifically address the funds in that multisig after they successfully pass a Snapshot vote
    • In other words, they won’t be making decisions temselves but executing on the collective choices of the TEC community
  • Check out some of our decision-making visuals
  • We’re voting for the final parameters of our Commons Upgrade: let your voice be heard (but, ideally, wait until after the debates to cast the full weight of your vote)
  • Forum Highlight: Our Rewards System sync calls are now on Wednesdays at 20:00 CET in our Community Hall VC. Check out our Rewards System Task Force Google Doc and our Reward Board for more detailed info on what we’re working on

  • Check out our Commons Configuration Dashboard (CCD)!
  • Try our dashboard here and, if you’re feeling lost or lonely, check our Party Calendar for the date & time of our many Params Parties
  • We’ve added one more feature to our CCD: you can now simulate a funding request into the bonding curve as a way to understand what it’d take to pass a proposal
  • Check out our current Commons Configuration Proposals (if you’d like to support one, use only 1 vote because it’s likely that most current proposals will be forked after our debates)
  • As for the debate structure: we’ll deliberate on 5 proposals, each proponent having 5 minutes to explain and 5 minutes to respond to objections or feedback given by peers; the debates will last 1 week and you can DM Griff if you’d like to host
  • Forum Highlight: Don’t hesitate to open an issue on ZenHub if you have suggestions on how to improve our CCD

:books: Thanks for reading the update this week! Be sure to check out the calendar to join us on a call! :phone:
