The point isn’t strictly to buy a castle (this is the first public good proposal ever, isn’t it clear?), you should take it as an input to brainstorm on.
The objective is building community and to have an institutional place to refer to.
Something able to express the values listed above?
To me this community is at the point where it is needed to break the first glass and see what is possible to imagine.
Maybe I misunderstand the meaning of a proposal process.
I think the decentralalnd counter_idea is at least a try to give a context to the values I try to address, even if completely out of context. Because in the end I am trying to give a physical dimension to the community, and specifically it is not the conference dimension, but the one of a space to refer to.
Human brain is a space machine. A machine building a sense of belongings. To belong to something is a multiplier of energy.
Anyway I am a dev, so there is no public good as valuable as public code to me.
But I am testing the community from another perspective. The perspective of the permanent location. The only one the not-devs can understand as absolute.
The discord proposal as a valuable alternative is a rejection of the human nature I want to express.
The decentraland one , as I said , recovers the spatial dimension and it is much better.
A community to me is something not temporary
The temporarity of a conference is just an event, like a concert, or a marriage.
Cerimonials, belonging to the teporarity of life, aren’t real.
A true collective is another thing.
Ethereum is collectivity, and this sis why in other communities this same idea is taken very seriously.
Maybe you Nick just don’t feel this need.
Personal life is something very personal.
Some people build a family and sticks with it, not allowing anyone to enter and distrub.
I don’t judge it.
To me building community is the meaning of life.
