Introductions thread!

Hi all, a very warm welcome to the TrojanDAO forum!

I would love to start things off by introducing myself ;

I am James, and I am part of TrojanDAO and DAOincubator.

I am an artist and organizer based in Athens, Greece, currently working on bringing the local cultural community and the DAOsphere closer together.

The Trojan DAO is created to facilitate the coordination of autonomous cultural practices, a means to cultivate a commons through the development of shared infrastructure for art, and as a way to bridge the work being done around ethereum development with the support of art as an important commons.

However these are only some starting points. Trojan will ultimately do whatever its member’s imaginations guide it to do!

The Trojan Discourse forum was created to enable public discussion about ongoing development of the Trojan DAO and potential proposals to be processed. Members and non-members welcome!

To start off, you can introduce yourself to the community and consider the following guideline questions:

  1. How can you contribute to the Trojan DAO?
  2. What kinds of projects do you want to see get funded?
  3. What have you worked on in the Art and/or the Ethereum space?

Heey everyone, happy to be here!

I’am Haythem Sellami, currently working as full time solidity developer with Coinsence, part of Trojan DAO team, member of DAO incubator, also a contributor in developing Kredits DAO.

I believe DAO’s can make a huge impact on our daily life and on how we manage to do different kind of tasks.

Glad to be part of this :slight_smile:

Hey everyone!

Im James Duncan, or just Duncan… been super involved in the Ethereum space for a little over a year and a half now. I am absolutely stoked on the ideas culminating in this community. Met James Simbouras in Berlin last winter and he graciously invited me to participate in helping launch the TrojanDAO project.

Currently living in LA and working on Abridged.io (dev tools), also involved in promoting the idea of an AppDAO.

Hmu if you wanna chat sometime.

Hi everyone, Adam Reese here.

Along with some folks who have already posted on this thread, I’ve been working to push the Trojan Foundation forward, to help it become a more realized (and of course on-chain) entity.

When James Simbouras first contacted me about this project, I was surprised–I’d somehow expected it to take longer for the blockchain space to meaningfully intersect with the arts. And yet here we are.

So in the interest of keeping this message somewhat brief, let me just say that I’m looking forward to collaborating with you all as we take this fantastic organization to the next level!

Much love,
Adam

Hey Im EXHuman,
I am an enthusiast of the NFT and DAO world. In cooperation and courtesy of MetaCartel DAO and Peter Pan, we will be forking Moloch to create Axie Cartel DAO. DAO for the gaming community and external developers in the world of Axie Infinity.

In addition, my wife painting canvas that capture the NFT tokens in our reality. Her works can be viewed on my twitter (https://twitter.com/3xhuman). Our last action is live painting on the Dlive MetaCartelDAO’s Amigo Guy during his inter-dimensional journey to the world of ETH.

Great to meet u all <3

Hello Everyone :slight_smile:

I am the founder of the Mettamodern Mythmaking Collective of Syntonia. I am a ‘behind-the-scenes’ wizard of the #S7Summit. I am a we.

We are looking to connect with the most preposterous artists on the planet for spirit-motivated social action and synergistic co-creation.

We are currently co-creating a next level “ARG” Alternative Reality Game which is truly a Transmedium Production. This production is anticipated to kick-off with an event in Sweden June or Sept 2020.

We are interested to meet new friends, kindred spirits and legendary co-creators here at the most auspicious Trojan DAO-- the #S7Summit will need this kind of undercover asset.

Big Hugs,
Looking forward in getting to know the community and uplifting each other.

Go Preposterous! or Go Home!

Preposterous! or bust!

https://thevoroscope.com/…/the-futures-cone-use-and-history/

“Preposterous – these are the futures we judge to be ‘ridiculous’, ‘impossible’, or that will ‘never’ happen. I introduced this category because the next category (which used to be the edge of the original form of the cone) did not seem big enough, or able to capture the sometimes-vehement refusal to even entertain them that some people would exhibit to some ideas about the future. This category arises from homage to James Dator and his Second Law of the Future—“any useful idea about the future should appear ridiculous” (Dator 2005)—as well as to Arthur C. Clarke and his Second Law—“the only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible” (Clarke 2000, p. 2). Accordingly, the boundary between the Preposterous and the Possible could be reasonably called the ‘Clarke-Dator Boundary’ or perhaps the ‘Clarke-Dator Discontinuity’, since crossing it in the outward direction represents a very important but, for some people, very difficult, movement in prospection thinking. (This is what is represented by the red arrows in the diagram.)”

Hey all, happy to be here! I’m Jeff from the Commons Stack, we are working on building open source interoperable DAO components that are rigorously designed using the latest tools & practices of Token Engineering. Our aim is to provide a library of tools for communities like TrojanDAO to mix & match, holistically simulate your system in cadCAD, and have confidence that systemic failure modes have been dealt with using good mechanism design.

If you are interested to read more about what we’re doing, check out our intro article or my presentation at the Token Engineering Global Gathering a few weeks ago (where we open sourced cadCAD!):

Cheers all, look forward to working with you!

Jeff

Hi Trojan honorable members!

I am the electric sheep. I am an android’s dream and I’m looking for my herd in a DAO’s dream. I hope I found it here. Please accept my tribute.
