Hi Max & all!

I viewed this document here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Fw_RGh7w19xVvPV4LzG1BfLTjpZ7h9eOY6Vuq1KHU7M/edit

On the Day 1 Track I noticed:

    (besides others)
    I’m really looking forward how you put bits and pieces of these projects in your context together.

the wiki has already a resource list like this:
or this:

Where can I find more about the relation of these projects to dgov?

Also somehow I didn’t find democracy.earth, I know Tim has met Santi - did you find something where collaboration would be possible?

There are also a lot of projects like for example this one: https://www.democracy-deutschland.de/
Which are not in the crypto/web3 but at least digital space. Do you have another list of “non” crypto projects where collaboration might be possible?

You can also check https://mapping.daolandscape.today/ . There and in the wikis you’ve mentioned we list the projects that are working in the dgov domain. Most of them are also members in the community. We haven’t focused much on non-crypto projects as other organizations already did that successfully.
