Contributor Types

NameContextRecurring Responsibilities
The people who are, at least for now, the default point people to make sure that Vitalia 2024 is a success (e.g. Laurence Ion, Niklas Anziger) Responsible for setting up the initial governance and operational structure, eventually stepping back as the community becomes more self-sustaining.
Serve as the backbone or brain trust for the Leads and are future leaders of Vitalia. They have social trust and a history of meaningful contributions. Curators can also become Topica Area Coordinators (e.g., crypto economy, AI) or Camp Leads. Initially, curators will be selected by the organizing team. As the community matures, this selection process will transition to a group decision-making mechanism among existing curators.
Camp leads are a narrowly defined role: be the key support person for the camp (e.g. figure out logistics, education in values, public goods e.g. grocery shopping & car pooling)
A Topic Area Coordinator leads a specific domain within Vitalia, like AI or crypto or DeSci, and organize events related to that domain that aligns with community goals. They serve as a bridge between Organizers and Residents.
A person who takes on only one key function, e.g. the "DC for cold plunges" or the "DC for building the sauna”. Any resident can step up to be a DC.
Also known as the "Builders" of Vitalia, residents contribute to the community's growth and can earn the right to become curators or DCs through their efforts.
Someone who isn’t dedicated to a specific key function, but is open to helping with any number of things.
