What is this about?

The #8 Arbitrum Open Governance Call, which took place on November 22, 2023, was a significant event for community engagement and transparency. The call, hosted on Google Meet, was recorded and made available to the public, along with a chat log and an auto-generated transcript provided by Sinkas15. The agenda included discussions on gaming STIP by Soby, insights from Devconnect & Arbitrum Days, and a presentation on ThankARB by DisruptionJoe. SavvyDAO addressed STIP Backfunding, and despite the deletion of a related post by Cocafish11, there was interest in discussing this proposal. The agenda also featured Jengajojo's proposal for the BanklessDAO's Global Education and Onboarding Campaign for Arbitrum7, and Tnorm's suggestion for a preliminary discussion on a deep dive scheduled for the upcoming Tuesday8. Sinkas contributed a new agenda item9, and Jengajojo recommended time limits for discussions to ensure equitable participation10. The next Open Governance Call is scheduled for December 20.
