Private Pods Vs Public Pods (IN PROGRESS)

Pods are working groups of writers and editors that collaborate on content. Private pods are sponsored by a client and the content is owned completely by them, public pods create content considered to be a public good, that enriches the ecosystem.

Pods last for 1 season, at which point the pod members or pod sponsor (for private pods) needs to re-apply to have the pod remain active.

Private Pods
Public Pods
Content Type
This content is created exclusively for the pod owner. It can be any type of content, from timely news to marketing content. The content can only be published by the sponsor of the pod. The content creation is funded by the publisher (sponsor).
The content is publicly accessible. Anyone in the DAO publisher network can publish the content. This content can be regarded as a public good. The goal is to benefit the public. It can be used to fund research papers or content marketing to give exposure to smaller projects in the space having a positive impact for the broader ecosystem.
The publisher has to allocate funding to a pod for 1 season of work. The funding is used to increase contributor compensation within that pod. The publishers decide how they want to compensate the writers in the pod, it can be done in $PUB or others. A predefined percentage of the total payout of the private pod season has to go to the public DAO treasury to fund public good content.
The content creation is funded through grants decided on by the DAO. Anyone in the DAO can submit a public pod proposal.
For the publisher/client
Any publisher in the DAO network can submit a pod proposal. A DAO vote approves or rejects the creation of the pod once submitted by the publisher. The publisher defines the guidelines for their pod (what needs to be commissioned, article structure, etc) It is a way to access a pool of freelancers that have been vetted by the DAO (with credentials verifiable on the blockchain) in a frictionless pod experience.
Any publisher within the DAO network can publish the content. The content is worked on in public channels and publishers can be as involved as they’d like to be in the content creation process, or not involved at all. Publishers that have received a publisher grant must publish at least one public good (generated from public pod) article per month
For the editor
The editor is an employee of the publication. The publisher accesses a pool of writers but they need to manage the editing. Note: The publisher is not forced to provide an editor. It can also be an editor from the DAO.
The editor is a contributor to PubDAO and is paired with a pod.
For the writer
The writers are freely floating between private pods and in public pods.
