Really sad to miss this but I’m on holiday for the long weekend and will be travelling at this time. I’ll catch up on the session afterwards so I’m up to date for the next one

Hey guys!
I suggest also using countdown timer, since it’s very difficult and confusing sometimes to convert timezones, also with pm/am , especially if you are not living into one of the mentioned timezones like: pst/est/gmt

I’d love to join this call and represent openregistry and answer any question CAB members might have for us

awesome, thanks!:))))))

Hey guys! thanks for the meeting, awesome that it was recorded, congratz to projects that received further investments:)

I have a small note - if someone wants to rewatch the video it would be great if there were timelines /timestamps (like on youtube videos sometimes)

(Hovewer I also understand that this is a lot of work to rewatch 1 hour video, so it may be not worth it:)

Also I have another idea:
Someone asked about voting system (like for example - it would be great for someone to vote who was abscent on the call )
I guess it was Bob at 34th minute

I want to build an AKASHSTARTER Launchpad for new projects that will be hosted on Akash network
There will be governance tab, where users could submit proposals and vote on them, maybe we can test this function in current Grant programm and CAB meeting needs?:slight_smile:
