At XMTP, while we prioritize asynchronous communication, we do believe that real-time discussion can have great value. The goal is to ensure that when synchronous discussions happen that they are not a waste of anyone’s time, and that we were clearly benefitted from the real-time nature.
To ensure that all parties have an equal opportunity in participation, we think about real-time communication in two specific categories: Meetings and Jams.
|Video or call with Zoom*||Using Discord|
|Structured (with a pre-planned and shared agenda)||Unstructured|
|All meetings should have a shared recap, either in notes or a Grain story||Jams do not need to have a recap, but if any decisions are made they should be communicated.|
|→ More on Meetings here||→ More on Jams here|
*While Zoom is not a hard-and-fast requirement for meetings, we encourage using it because Grain enables very easy recording and transcription, including fast recaps, it’s simply the best way to capture as much value from a meeting as possible.*
