I have a quick question regarding AP: if userA remotelly follows UserB and someone reply to a Note from UserB, UserA does not receive any update ?
#
nightpool[m]
Cult: it depends on the addressing of the reply

SocialCG December Meeting https://www.w3.org/wiki/SocialCG/2018-12-12
#
fun360
Hi! :)
#
fun360
I've been invited here by Christopher Lemmer Webber
#
eprodrom
Great!
#
eprodrom
Are you on Mumble?
#
fun360
I just advise that in 30 minutes I have to go, so I hope to get the chance to make my proposal before leaving :)
#
fun360
nope
#
fun360
I open it
#
eprodrom
OK
#
eprodrom
Well, we've got a pretty brief agenda
#
fun360
I'm there but I don't see anybody
#
eprodrom
Yes I'm just about to arrive
#
eprodrom
Or not
#
fun360
XD
#
eprodrom
I'm going to have to participate via IRC, my mumble setup is working badly
#
eprodrom
trackbot, start meeting

Sorry, but no Tracker is associated with this channel.
#
eprodrom_
Grrr
#
eprodrom_
OK, I'll just do minutes by hand
#
eprodrom_
trackbot, status
#
trackbot
Sorry, but no Tracker is associated with this channel.
#
fun360
sounds like everything is working perfectly today :)
#
eprodrom
Indeed
#
eprodrom
Well, I'm filling in as chair
#
eprodrom
I'll just copy-and-paste the meeting notes
#
eprodrom
Let's just do it on IRC
#
fun360
ok
#
eprodrom
TOPIC: discourse on activitypub.rocks
#
eprodrom
Do you want to give an overview of the idea?
#
fun360
sure
#
eprodrom
fun360, can you give an overview?
#
eprodrom
Still there?
#
fun360
I'm collaborating with several projects and is missing a central place where people can find each other for several reasons
#
eprodrom
So, a lot of people who are working on AP?
#
fun360
since AP is about creating communities, first I think is needed the human side about community
#
Cult
nightpool[m]: sorry, got pulled somewhere else in my code. I'll have a look to your link !
#
eprodrom
fun360: technically, this community group is supposed to be that place
#
eprodrom
We have a group that's managed by the W3C
#
fun360
many projects don't even know about AP, and when I talk about it they ask me technical help, which I cannot provide right now
#
eprodrom
We've got mailing lists, this IRC channel, Github, and wiki
#
fun360
yep but we have to face the reality that people need more easier tools for sync together: right now they use https://discourse.joinmastodon.org
#
rialtate[m]
Since discourse doesn't support activitypub I think it's an incredibly bad idea. However, https://socialhub.network/ already exists for that purpose.
#
fun360
I didn't know about https://socialhub.network/
#
eprodrom
Oh great
#
eprodrom
This is the first time I've heard of it
#
fun360
me too
#
fun360
for me is not about Discourse itself
#
eprodrom
It's about having a forum people can use
#
fun360
but something you, as AP team, promote as "meeting point"
#
eprodrom
Different people like different kinds of interfaces
#
fun360
yes
#
fun360
a generic place, not Mastodon or some other platform related
#
eprodrom
RRSAgent, make logs public
#
rialtate[m]
I think it's much better if the forum is AP powered so people who already have AP can participate and also so it can be federated and not siloed
#
fun360
if https://socialhub.network/ is generic is perfect, just nobody knows about it XD not even me that I've been looking for it :P
#
eprodrom
I agree, rialtate[m]
#
fun360
AP powered forum would be even more amazing :)
#
eprodrom
Yes, but afaik it doesn't exist yet
#
eprodrom
It's a great idea for a project though
#
fun360
that's why I proposed Discourse, it's ready and opensource, nothing stop anybody to add AP
#
fun360
actually can be the first topic :P
#
eprodrom
Can we do this? Let's add a link to socialhub.network on the SocialCG wiki
#
eprodrom
See if that helps
#
eprodrom
I don't know
#
eprodrom
Can you follow up there?
#
eprodrom
We're closing in on 30 minutes so I think we should wrap up
#
fun360
I can investigate a bit, but now I've to go, can you give me your contact so we can continue this speech later?
#
eprodrom
I think working through the CG is the right way to get things done
#
fun360
ok
#
fun360
anyway for me linking https://socialhub.network/ in the AP homepage is a good solution
#
fun360
:)
#
eprodrom
Great, I'll add an issue on Github
#
eprodrom
With that, let's adjourn the meeting
#
fun360
:D
#
fun360
thanks for everything!
#
eprodrom
Sure
#
fun360
hope more and more projects will join AP ;) I'm with you!
#
eprodrom
Great thanks!
#
rialtate[m]
Afaik the only activitypub groupware is the one I am working on with saranix, Loogie.
#
rialtate[m]
There is an instance at https://adhoc.group . It currently federates with activitypub and email (mailinglist style) and 5 other protocols are in heavy development with more planned.
#
rialtate[m]
It is not yet open source though. I just refactored one feature and touched like 75% of the code to do it so open sourcing would just create massive confusion at this early stage.
