Sometimes, all you need is a good teammate.
Moving day. Got settled at our new place for the next month. Had dinner at the one and only Dilly Wagon too!
Moving day, new home, new internet. What will the upcoming week hold?
Cooking enchiladas ☣️
Unbelievable sunset. The Hong Kong Security Law started being enforced today. What will next 10 years look like? Helping coordinate new feature for Scrappy. Big fundraising email got sent off.
@dinaelhanan started today. Bank is almost entirely caught up on ops due to the great work of @md and @chaleb, who is stepping up to help out with some stuff these next two weeks. Two fundraising / donor calls today too.
Bank ops. Hack Club running internationally. How do we network our way into The Omidyar Group? What does a 21st century institution look like? New place @msw and I are staying in Vermont for this week.
Back in Vermont with @msw. Moved into our new home for the next week. Had 2 convos on video call tonight with teammates: (1) how do we make sure ops for Bank will be in a good spot this week and (2) what could something look like that would get more actually good student nonprofits running?
The house with no internet. Hack Club Bank and the Legitimacy Trap. Cooking shrimp for dinner. Day 1 of in-person HQ being just @christina, @msw, and myself (everyone split from Vermont and nearly everyone will come back in-person by July 5th).
Long day of driving and moving people around at HQ today. Spent all morning packing. Everyone left Vermont and will be back on July 5th. Christina, Max, and I drove 5 hours to a place we’re staying at until Sunday (and we visited a potential place for everyone to stay over the summer). Had some great conversations with everyone on the drive.
Wrapping up weekend, had a call with a Bank event today that needed help because our operations fell short, and thinking about (1) action HQ needs to take on hackathon GitHub Grants and (2) how to coordinate physical logistics of moving the team around this week.
Continuing my short video updates from HQ. Day off today, but had good conversations about the community. 1. How do we avoid the “legitimacy trap” and keep out psychopaths? 2. What does a Slack look like that’s a purely opt-in experience? How do we make it a more fun experience to start up new channels? 3. What if Orpheus archived channels that had no activity after 2 weeks to clear out the cruft? 4. What if Orpheus could create “breakout channels” like Zoom has breakout rooms?
Unbelievable sunset tonight.
