I’ve been thinking about this for a couple of days now and I think it’s going to be nice to have a conversation about this.
So, in my opinion we are facing a problem that’s slowly making harder for all the bees to keep track of everything that’s moving here, especially the newer ones in the community; we are highly product-centered (which is not bad at all) but we lack a trunk that can properly connect all the roots (swarms) with the branches (final 1hive’s products).
As of today, it might not be that big of a deal since we aren’t that big, yet.
That’s why I think that it will be very beneficial for us, especially in the long run, to create a team (not sure if this would apply to make an actual swarm) made up mainly by active members of other swarms that can input data to be handled and stored as a way to establish processes and information so that it can be easily accessed by all swarms, e.g. I recently saw that Terra DAO will start a Bounty Program and what better way to do it than getting input from Buzz who has been handling them for a while and they know what works and what doesn’t, Seira would be in charge of making the pertinent documents that record the best practices and scheduling meetings with the members of each swarm to explain and implement them.
I’m convinced that having a team that can constantly manage the input of internal data (just like bees do by forming structured honeycombs with well-defined shapes) can facilitate documentation and communication between working teams, as well as increasing the efficiency and transparency of all the processes and having a more stablished/clear roadmap or path.
It’s important to mention that even though this team implements and facilitates the flow of information, it doesn’t create the policies that define what information is correct or accessible to others. We just document what’s going on the hive and maybe conduct internal audits focused on the processes and transparency in the data management of each swarm? Not really sure about this last part.
Also, I got in touch with @lkngtn earlier to see what he thought about this and he mentioned the complexity of achieving a certain level of standardization to improve information flow without falling into a bunch of bureaucracy that slows down everyone’s work here.
For now I decided to call it Seira (thx to @Efra for the cool name), which is series/order in greek.
Excited to see what you guys think about this
