First, the Dash Foundation's website ought to be in the community listings, in my opinion We really need the foundation to do several jobs for the network; jobs that require an entity. It's already doing this work: Act as a legal entity for the network when required: holds ownership of domains\ holds ownership of trademark initiates legal actions on the network's behalf (trademark) In so doing, the foundation should be paid for it's services via the budgeting system (which it has) But unfortunately, the Foundation just sits there, with no reports, no activity. I think we need to begin building it up so it's ready for use. We will need it soon. With Evan talking about "Branch Offices", I simply can't see trusting just anyone to run a Dash branch office and getting paid via the budgeting system. Who is to ensure they're representing Dash correctly, or even functioning and not just taking their daily stipend and doing nothing? I see this idea, if it's adopted, directly being run by the foundation. If branches must exist. We will soon need to lobby on Dash's behalf in Washington, Belgium and Ottawa, London etc... Yes, lobbyists. We will need to retain a strong legal team, probably several for different areas of the world. The Foundation will be needed to head this. I know I'm a bit early on this stuff again, I'm looking a few years into the future, but we need strong membership, strong governance, adherence to the bylaws (which seem very boilerplate) It needs to be cleaned up and ready to go. I don't think anything has been done on the website in 2 years?? If the current board of directors can't pull this together, we should elect new directors, or more directors if the current group is necessary (like Evan, Fernando, etc... because we trust them) Or even better, the Foundation should be given a budget to hire people to work on cleaning it up, maintaining the site, and doing the work we need done. Lets not leave this until the last minute. There is plenty of work we can already have the Foundation do today if we wanted to. How about organizing a big Dash conference? Maybe it's time to host one ourselves now. The Foundation, if it had employees, could do this, and do it well. Hell, a conference, if done well, can raise even more funds for spreading the word and adoption!
