The past week we touched on some important issues and ideas for our governance, which are all posted in our forum. We also dedicated last week's Spaces to talking about protecting our data privacy and security in a post Roe world. If you'd like to explore all of these topics (and more) on a deeper level, please apply to join our DAO.

Growth & Governance
Our governance forum has been HOT this week (kinda like this summer…boy howdy!!) and here’s the TLDR; of what is being discussed on our forum. The forum is where we discuss more formal ideas and craft them into proposals that will vote upon as a DAO using Re-Public’s amazing voting app built by our very own @kaxline!
- Brainstorming on tools to power JournoDAO started by @Jfrevert
With JournoDAO’s forum as an excellent and less-scrollable backdrop, I’m interested in hearing some ideas on web3 journalism tooling from anyone interested. https://forum.journodao.xyz/t/brainstorming-on-tools-to-power-journodao/27
- RFC: Formalize and deepen partnership with Factland started by @kaxline
I’m the lead developer for JournoDAO and Factland and I’d like to see some closer collaboration, if possible. Both are public goods, and Factland has established an official 501(c)(3) to do business as. Our audiences are very similar since Factland would like to find passionate fact checkers, researchers, and journalists who can be incentivized by the platform and give the public a way to contribute to their process. https://forum.journodao.xyz/t/rfc-formalize-and-deepen-partnership-with-factland/29
- RFC: How should we enforce the 1000 quantity limit of NFTs? started by @kaxline
- RFC: Should Core Team members be gifted Founder NFTs? started by @kaxline
- Also - One idea just beginning to simmer:
Conversations, Town Halls & IRL Events
Our very own @EricMack.eth published a fabulous article on CNET about Coinbase selling data to ICE, including gathering and sharing geotracking data:
Coinbase Says It Doesn't Sell Customer Data After ICE 'Geo Tracking' Contract Surfaces
We’re also gearing up for our first every IRL event this fall at the ONA Conference in LA! To get this party started, literally, @jenniferstory created a Telegram group for the event (and beyond) to coordinate and announce the various IRL events we’ll be throwing or attending at the conference. And yes, we’re planning something for our Founder NFT holders, we’re just not sure what that is at the moment— stay tuned and join the Telegram. https://t.me/web3Journalism
Last week’s Town Hall touched on some community initiatives and we talked in depth about our Founders NFT. Watch the replay here
Last week’s Twitter Spaces was dedicated to data privacy and security in a Post Roe world. As we explore this dangerous new landscape as a society, it’s more imperative than ever to protect ourselves, our sources, the women, female-identifying and marginalized populations in our communities and beyond. We took some time to start the conversation surrounding data privacy and security and we’ll be revisiting this topic as our world, and the control of our data, changes.
Proposals & Partnerships
Our blockchain investigative project with Diamond DAO’s Chainverse tool is moving right along and we’ll have more solid updates on progress in the coming weeks.
We don’t have any new governance proposals yet, but there a few ideas in our governance forum that are close to formalization as a proposal. If you’d like to participate in those conversations, please visit the forum and dive in.
