Inspired by [snarfed], nudge and guidance to avoid general AI-related rants in our on-topic channels (really appreciate that observation and request Ryan!), I'd like to add a (sub)section guideline in /discuss to please Avoid General Technology Rants (like literally with that heading, so we can link to it) in any "on-topic" channels, and suggest using random (or your own blog!) for such things instead.
#
[tantek]
We have a very constructively focused community, and I think it takes deliberate steps to retain that, while I also understand and sympathize having a community "outlet" and #indieweb-random is great for that.
#
[tantek]
Thoughts?

Wrote up section in Brainstorming. Take a look and add your opinion (everyone here) https://indieweb.org/discuss#Avoid_General_Technology_Rants

[snarfed]
thanks!

[snarfed]
I've heard and kind of liked "tech politics" as another term for this kind of talk, along with "rants"
#
[snarfed]
so it sounds like #indieweb-chat is (will eventually be) dead, long live #indieweb-random?

aciccarello, did you mean *discourage* link-dumping?
#
[tantek]
aaronpk, I will add "redefine stream channel scope to include link-sharing rather than other channels" as an alternative — I almost added that originally

[tantek]
aaronpk, can you review my addition of your alternative proposal (alternative: expand "stream" channel scope to include link-sharing) to see if I got the details roughly correct? https://indieweb.org/discuss#link_sharing

I’m speaking to Matt McDonnell, the organiser of Peckham Digital, a festival for creative computing that’s running in South London 18-21 July. I’ve agreed to give a talk about the IndieWeb, and am encouraging the idea of holding an IndieWebCamp the weekend of the festival, too.
#
[Paul_Robert_Ll]
Matt’s looking into venues, but has never organised a camp, and I think he’d appreciate speaking to people who have and could help organise one. I’m happy to help out, but can’t take the lead as will be focused on preparing the talk. Who in London would be interested in trying to get this off the ground? I can put you in touch with Matt and hopefully get the ball rolling.

[Paul_Robert_Ll] I don’t know my plans right now, but that does sound interesting!
#
[tantek]
[Paul_Robert_Ll]++ thanks for exploring this possibility! Can you add the specific dates for "holding an IndieWebCamp the weekend of the festival" and indicate availability? That way other folks can also indicate their availability that weekend
