Welcome to Creator Talk!
I’m thrilled to share the first episode featuring Tadas Vaitiekunas. Tadas is a visionary software developer and consensus builder who created an amazing new way for communities to cooperate!
This new way for people to cooperate is called Eden+Fractal, and I believe it will benefit everyone in the world far more than any of us can imagine. In this conversation we provide an introduction to this elegant consensus process and discuss how it helps communities collaborate. We explore, as Tadas eloquently stated, how Eden+Fractal provides a means for communities know what they think. We talk about how this process provided each of us with revelations, deliberate deeper details, and imagine how this process may help empower many more communities in the future.
There’s so much more to say about this conversation and process, but I will keep it brief here. I’m so grateful for Tadas sharing this with us and am thrilled to help pioneer these innovations with the Eden community. I greatly enjoyed this conversation, learned so much, and am deeply inspired by Tadas’ profound insights. I hope that this conversation will provide similar enjoyment, inspiration, and insights for you!
