Statement of Intent: The open request for public goods got me started with DAOs, and especially GitcoinDAO. I have been helping contribute to open source software since 2014.
I intend to understand the health, wealth, and truth of our commons which I shared about at length in CommonsWTH- a talk I gave at the Governauts Rewards Research initiative. I love studying public goods through multiple aspects of society - technology, economics, culture, and policy. To that end, I have been contributing to various initiatives such as-
- GitcoinDAO (Public Goods workstream as a librarian, organizing community, building coordination tools at MMM (Memes, Merch, Marketing) and Moonshot Collective.
- KERNEL Steward involved in the mutualistic co-evolution of KERNEL with GitcoinDAO to build communities of care,
- Token Engineering Commons (via the Governauts Rewards Research program till Feb 2022),
- Complexity Weekend (a community of practice to facilitate applied complexity projects. This is where I learned about the Commons Stack in the first place and became a part of the Trusted Seed),
- https://1729.com community contributor to build a network state,
- Helping steward DWeb nodes and local communities in Singapore to design techforgood, such as https://better.sg
As a Steward, I intend to understand the needs of other stewards via the Stewards council and build better tools and processes to improve the DAO.
- coordinating tech projects as an MMM lead with Brittney and Fred.
- helped build https://primer.gitcoindao.com to make DAO onboarding easier.
- helped build our memeshot: https://memes.party and co-facilitating Memepalooza 1-6.
- Initiated partnerships with Karma to improve our steward health reporting.
- Public Goods workstream contributor where I help find speakers for the weekly Public Library calls, ‘Public Goods are Good’ twitter spaces.
- helping Gitcoin Grants teams from FDD in GR12 and GR13 with Sybil hunting
- contributing to the inaugral DAO Workers Report w/ Gitcoin and Bankless via the Moonshot Collective.
