    *bigger images
    Tommy Izen
    @TommyIzen
    oh yeah, this is going to be lite as possible

    @darrylpargeter
    As a coding social Network would we use big images? Most likely just profile images which we could pull though github
    Cylocation
    @Cylocation
    @TommyIzen Diaspora, as an example, can be accessed without a client straight from the browser. Only the pods(server space) needs fancy setup.

    @Chrysallis
    @TommyIzen maybe we could look at hola for some inspiration, they distribute their load and run with a browser extension.
    flota113
    @flota113
    ok, @silentfox91 you are right
    Tommy Izen
    @TommyIzen
    @Cylocation see that's awesome
    I had no idea
    makes sense though I've seen torrent clients that work through the browser
    Cylocation
    @Cylocation
    What is hola?
    Chrysallis
    @Chrysallis
    @Cylocation free VPN service
    flota113
    @flota113
    but Diaspora isn't just distributed around some servers? @Cylocation
    Tommy Izen
    @TommyIzen
    @Cylocation is there a browser plugin for Diaspora?
    I hate plugins
    flota113
    @flota113
    I mean that there is a few servers and it's distributed around them - we would first need these servers @Cylocation
    Tommy Izen
    @TommyIzen
    just because they drag the browser down
    Cylocation
    @Cylocation
    https://wiki.diasporafoundation.org/Tools_to_use_with_Diaspora has some info. I don't really know much about it. There are definitely plugins on that page.

    @darrylpargeter
    Anyway back in a bit guys, maybe we should do that trollo bored idea? So people who leave can keep up to date?
    Cylocation
    @Cylocation
    @flota113 The 'servers' are run on peoples home machines mostly, in diaspora's case.
    Tommy Izen
    @TommyIzen
    Sure, we must get organized
    flota113
    @flota113
    @Cylocation ok, thx ;)
    okelano
    @okelano
    Tried diaspora before
    Tommy Izen
    @TommyIzen
    What did you think of it?
    okelano
    @okelano
    Not the best option.
    Tommy Izen
    @TommyIzen
    Do you have other suggestions? We are thinking of a distributed option to handle load balancing.
    okelano
    @okelano
    Thinking now
    Chrysallis
    @Chrysallis
    I think distributed vs. server-based implementation should be hidden from regular users.
    they should not need to worry about it
    flota113
    @flota113
    http://podupti.me/ I think this is a list of Diaspora-based sites @TommyIzen
    Cylocation
    @Cylocation
    @Chrysallis You could get in trouble for 'hiding' the fact that you were using their computer resources.
    okelano
    @okelano
    Why not using tor for chat or irc?
    flota113
    @flota113
    @okelano it needs client - right? we are trying to avoid it ;)
    Chrysallis
    @Chrysallis
    @Cylocation well, by hiding I mean that how you use the service isn't affected by where things are stored. How it works can be in a FAQ
    Tommy Izen
    @TommyIzen
    @flota113 yeah the users shouldn't need to bother with downloading a client
    it should be transparent
    imho
    okelano
    @okelano
    Web irc not need it or simply implement chat into Web page
    Tommy Izen
    @TommyIzen
    yeah I don't care for adding an irc
    Chrysallis
    @Chrysallis
    @TommyIzen can a web client be allowed to do local storage?
    flota113
    @flota113
    @Chrysallis I'm almost sure that yes..
    Tommy Izen
    @TommyIzen
    @Chrysallis with html5 you have local sql storage so that's possible
    Cylocation
    @Cylocation
    @okelano What makes building a social network off of the diaspora code not a good option? Or were you saying that using diaspora itself is not a good option?
    Chrysallis
    @Chrysallis
    then maybe we can have our cake, and eat it too
    Tommy Izen
    @TommyIzen
    @Chrysallis haha yeah
    Quincy Larson
    @QuincyLarson
    Hi, thanks for inviting me to this room!
    I could create an official FCC room and invite everyone there
    Chrysallis
    @Chrysallis
    hello
    Quincy Larson
    @QuincyLarson
    is that OK with you all?
    okelano
    @okelano
    Some years ago when moocs was still on early stage I tried to develop open learning platform based diaspora.
    Cylocation
    @Cylocation
    Sure @QuincyLarson
