I worked full time in May without vacation days. This period included attendance of MIT Bitcoin Conference May 7-8 which was a weekend. In June I took a week of vacation. I also attended Consensus in Austin in June.

What I think went well
Scheduling of auditing for Carrot V1 went smoothly. And auditing busy in general.
What I think needs improvement
Lost lead dev from Space Inch as he got moved to another project. Could have tried more to keep him going with Swapr.
There is lack of clarity on Nimi’s relationship to DXdao. I feel like this could have been addressed by now, but hasn’t.

I have been involved with DXdao since inception, as part of Level K, involved in a variety of areas of responsibility. You can find Level K worker proposals via the governance interfaces by searching for “Level K”
Caney Fork voted NO on this proposal with all of its REP. The proof of work in this proposal is not up to the standards of a Level 8 contributor in DXdao working full-time.
The ‘accomplishments’ section consists mostly of John’s activities outside of DXdao - instead of proof of his contributions to technical development of the products. There are no links to Github repos or any technical work in this reflection, because there was no activity from jpkcambridge during this worker period on any active DXdao product on Github (only Nimi).
Moreover, John has failed to follow through on commitments to improve DXdao’s security and proposal monitoring system. Over this worker period on the May 25 Governance Discussion, John gave an overview of how to manually monitor proposals. And then said:
We want a robust [monitoring] system that scales with the DAO…We want to expand this into a more reliable system that’s transparent that has contributors participating equally across the board. So our next step is to form a small team, and probably draft a few other contributors…and create a shared spreadsheet and actively share our records of how we’re monitoring.
Three months later, there is no progress on this front and no updates from John. More troubling, this is not the first time John made a commitment to a better system for proposal monitoring. In the dxdao.security chat in Keybase in July 2021:
