    <div>What is a ‘hierarchy management tool’ & what would it be used for?</div><div>

    As for voting, I like the idea of using a sliding scale & adding up the numbers across a gradient(s) of responses from different participants to get a result, rather than a straightforward ‘Yes/No’ which leaves no room for spectrum of emotions.

    But it would still come down to a black/white ‘Yes/No’.

    At final count/math, anything over a 5 is ‘yes’ and anything under a 5 is ‘no’.

    The tool just doesn’t exist yet and I don’t have the wherewithal to build it. 😆 Just use simple contact forms & manual counting, I guess.

      I’m also not sure how ‘meritocracy’ would be measured, unless simply appointing a new member of the core/management team.

      There would still need to be a process to arrive at a decision. Someone writes the ‘algorithm’ for decision-making & everyone who qualifies to vote, votes.

      How is it relevant to someone ‘to be a qualified voter’?

      My position is that they cannot ‘buy in’ with their finances (whether they contributed money as a VC, Angel Investor or Donor) but with their prior contributions to the community/DAO within an area of relevance.

      Of course, all this is just theory for now…

    The whole movement should lean into the excitement and interest around pop-up cities. IMO they’re the fastest growing on-ramp to network states.

    In the pop-up city space what’s needed is practical solutions that:
    A) make it easier to start and grow pop-up cities (right now the operating ‘tech stack’ is a mish-mash of Google sheets, docs and forms, telegram groups, and other such things bolted together) and
    B) improve the quality of the experience delivered on-ground, so residents become advocates and are excited to attend more cities. A small but reliable fraction will also go on to found their own cities which maintain social relationships to the first, becoming natural nodes in a network.

    The exciting thing for myself as a founder of tooling that helps pop-up city organizers is that getting to A actually makes B easier. It reduces the burden on organizers so they can focus more on overall experience design and delivery and less on micro-txs that resemble customer service for city residents.

    Networks states become powerful when it becomes the way a lot of people want to imagine living. This screenshot shows the 10X increase in Google searches for “digital nomad” over the last 10 years – we could see something similar emerge for network states.
