Blimey! Dan and Rosmari embark on a mythic quest to empower communities, fund public goods, and sing hearty Irish songs! 🍀

Fractal Apple #2: The Giving Spirit!
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Dan celebrates the jolly season by sharing the holiday spirit, playing classic carols, and giving 500 EOS to public goods creators on Pomelo! 🎄
After grants are approved, public goods creators have opportunities to promote their grants at pitch sessions. These pitch sessions can be a great place to promote your work, learn about exciting projects, and network with other public goods creators!
One of our favorite parts of pitch sessions is how they can inspire cool shows! Similar to ideathons and other FractalJoy games, these pitch sessions provide natural opportunities for communities to collaboratively create media with the power of DAMS. For example, we’ve hosted two Pomelo Pitch Sessions at Eden Fractal meetings.
You can watch these sessions and explore show notes in the links below:

EF 41: Aquadac and Pomelo Grants
Douglas introduces Aquadac, a new fractal collective to help people achieve goals and connect with community. We discuss spirituality then hold the first Eden Fractal Pomelo Pitch Session! 🌊
We held our first Eden Fractal Pomelo Pitch Session with great success and heard amazing pitches to create public goods. You can watch the pitch session begin at 2:08:14 and see grants from several talented community members for the following half hour. As Dan wrote in the Cagendas topic proposal, “This kind of pitch session can provide us with opportunities to quickly learn about each other’s work and support the amazing public goods creators in our community. This can also be a great way to promote Eden Fractal with the unique benefits of cagendas consensus games for collaboration, networking, and video creation.` There are many exciting possibilities that we can explore now and in future seasons of Pomelo…”
