What is the Garden?
The Garden is a place where you can learn about many exciting projects, initiatives, and communities that we’re growing. You can think of the garden like a blog, but more lively, iterative, and fractal!

We’re just getting started, so please be patient while we build and tend to the garden. We will soon improve this page to better explain the garden. For now, you can read a draft introduction to the Garden below.
What are we Growing?
This garden serves three purposes:
- Growing Ideas
- Growing Media
- Growing Communities
The garden is a place for growing thoughts, ideas, and stories!
Some of the articles in the garden are about collaborative tools and games, such as Cignals, Eden Talk, and Cagendas. Other articles, such as Independence and our earlier writing at Dogman Labs, help tell the incredible story of Web3 pioneers. Many of the articles are devoted to curating the work of talented builders in the ecosystem and providing welcoming introductory resources for new community members. For example, you can read our articles about Pomelo, Albedo, Agendas, and Consortium.
The garden is largely inspired by the concepts of ‘digital gardens’ shared by pioneers like Maggie Appleton and Andy Matuschak. You can learn more about their pioneering work below. Some of the articles here are in very early stages of development and may not be immediately understandable to readers who lack related knowledge, but we encourage you to explore as much as you like and learn along the way. You can also check back and see many notes grow over time. In addition to upcoming new work, we’ve also written many thousands of pages of exciting content in other places and will gradually add more here as time permits.
We create awesome videos every week about EOS, Eden, & fractal cooperation!
We curate videos along with all kinds of multimedia content throughout the garden. Over the past year we’ve published hundreds of hours of inspiring, entertaining, and educational videos with many of the best builders in Web3. You can enjoy countless collaborative insights in our playlists, including Eden ƒractal, Eden Town Halls, Genesis ƒractal, and Eden Creators Originals. These videos provide a profoundly helpful resource to help everyone enjoy the benefits of Web3… and their evergreen value will compound as we continue to innovate, create awesome stories together, and increase our production capacity.
Now we’re leveling up multimedia production with unprecedented cooperative innovations. We’re pioneering the power of DAMS, or decentralized autonomous media studios, with innovative consensus games like Eden+Fractal, Vlalendas, and Ideathons. We’re planning to produce thousands of world class videos that showcase the amazing work of community innovators, promote cooperative tools to mainstream audiences, and show how everyone can create huge benefits by empowering their communities with fractal consensus games!
For more details about how we’re curating videos and multimedia content in the garden, you can read our draft article about DAMS. You can also learn how we’re supercharging content curation in the garden with the power of DAMS in our article about curating More Equal Animals.
While creating content and hosting events, we’re also planting seeds and nourishing the noosphere to help grow countless new communities with all kinds of enjoyable, creative, and helpful purposes. Every creator or community doing something good for the world can do it better by cooperating with fractal consensus games… and we’re here to help!
As we pioneer new forms of collaboration, we’re sharing our experiences, documenting progress, creating educational tutorials, writing cooperating manuals, coordinating development of open-source tooling, incubating exemplary organizations, and building case studies to help everyone enjoy these innovative games with their communities.
We’ve also been diligently designing the seeds for dozens of other exciting communities for the past decade. For example, you can see our ƒirst ƒractal music video and this draft article to learn about some of the communities that we’re growing with fractal consensus games, including our cosmically exciting work with Alien World’s Fractal and other Antelope communities. You can also see our draft articles about ECOS, EOS Sages, and Playtubas Global for previews of future development…
Please note that this garden is being planted and is in very early stages of growth. Much more is coming soon. Enjoy!
Stay tuned, much more coming soon! 🏄🏽♂️
