So Where Do We Start, When Building Digital Commons Infrastructure?

  1. A community funding pool is the first step to getting things done for any group. Think of this like the money collected and spent by your government or condo board — except now you get a vote on where it goes.
  2. Effective community decision making on how to allocate those funds via a proposal and governance system.
  3. Direct, verifiable allocation of funds and transparency in spending member contributions.
  4. Tracking and reporting on community operations to iterate on effective work done.
