@pcuci
@/all http://bettermtl.com now live, we can start sharing at large once #2 is complete
Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
@David-Ro github is like Trello (task tracking), Gitter is like Slack (persistent chat), open ended discussions are best handled here, topic discussions that lead to actionable items are better handled in github issues, which can reference each other
complicated design discussions best be handled in google docs
I tend to agree with the insights here: https://m.signalvnoise.com/is-group-chat-making-you-sweat-744659addf7d#.s765j3hhc “real-time sometimes, asynchronous most of the time”
Heri Rakotomalala
@heri
@David-Ro I don’t think this solution can handle rsvps
Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
@heri it would need to be something like Disqus, for RSVPs, a simple microservice
Marek
@marekweb
So if I understand correctly we're talking about registering interest/rsvp's, and tracking who showed up and who didn't, and also enabling pre- and post-event discussion
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro
Marek, yes. Welcome to this chat, too. :-) Can you please accept the github invite so your face appears as a team person in the bettermtl.github.io open-source project. Thank you for this!

@marekweb we're starting off with curating the events list, @frabrunelle and Ilias want to generate newsletters from these community-generated events lists, @David-Ro wants pre-/post-event chatter, I want a merged calendar of events in my google calendar.
@marekweb dynamic stuff like pre-/post-event chatter can be prototyped with Disqus or a similar system. RSVP'ing will need to be a different service. Any thoughts on how to prototype RSVPs on a statically generated site?
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro
For now, this chat is about other additional micro services that can be starts
... can be started as separate things, using different tech (appropriate to the need).
Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
@David-Ro bettermtl/bettermtl.github.io#41 I would postpone, unless you have a good reason for such high priority? We don't have past events yet
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro
@pcuci to show to anyone, any alpha tester or beta or early, a list of future and past events -- it makes sense to have an actionable "why bother showing the past" reason to show the past.
Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
@David-Ro sure, I was thinking the future will become the past anyway, no need to put the cart before the horse...
the value to users is what they can do with the information on the site. If I had to chose between 5 future events and 5 past events, the 5 future events are more valuable
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro
yeh. The button could say "I hope to attend a future event like this. Please hold my name and contact me for this, when you hold a new event that's similar." @pcuci
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro
@pcuci re issue #2 and Gitter comment: "Show what the platform is capable of when used by a fantastic community" I say we must focus on a small group (and we'll see whether we overload cognitive circuits). Currently the scroll up-down is going to cause us "never" to reach the past events, because the future events shall get longer and longer.
Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
@David-Ro both can be limited, show next 5 events only, show past 3 events only
Limiting is an easier implementation that UX overhaul.
Other options exist too, like different smaller format for upcoming events 6th and father in the future.
Changing the scroll orientation from vertical to horizontal is more scss work
Pagination is another option
You can suggest more alternatives too
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro
@frabrunelle can you send out a query in a few places and do some more good discovering; you found this template and jekyllRB (It's good)
Re: "... write a longer message later but basically we would have to use http://jekyllrb.com + https://pages.github.com. and in addition to generating an RSS feed, we also generate an ical feed: https://gist.github.com/woodworker/6725728. ...."
The query is to search for a way to show a timeline that's continous.
Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
@/all hey everyone, see the new http://bettermtl.com - it's now multilingual (you can add any number of languages), and has a few cool workshps/events posted
Which communities should we work with initially to populate the event calendar?
Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
@/all switched http://bettermtl.com to French default, restyled and added locations and network collections to reduce data copying errors (normalization). We now have something solid to show for next Monday's http://notman.org/hackthehouse/ - plz test and let me know your comments, feedback much appreciated!
Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
@David-Ro I've moved the about file, also see bettermtl/bettermtl.github.io#70
They made it such that people can request invites to join the jekyll core team, wonder what bot they're using to make that happen. We would then be able to notify teams with @bettermtl/content or @bettermtl/code or @bettermtl/ops - or whatever team names we end up creating
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro
feedback is "this is good" and we now need to show clear links to the other teams working on IoT
Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
blob
@David-Ro something like this would be cool
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro
something like that, yes, and showing needs expressed by participants, needed before the event starts: physical needs and interpersonal needs; e.g. which participants are edge cases, exceptions. A paper checklist still works for physical and for logistics but real-time responsive software is the only way to handle the interpersonal needs outside of key-organizers' brains.
Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
@David-Ro I need a tag-line, any ideas?
Wikified activities fact track (who what) events, link calendar, promote/show/hide data(meta(meta))
this one is too techy
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro
Wiki your place and get the facts @pcuci
Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
k, that's good
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro
next: best next is which one: enable people to
enter (either a topic or name of someone to follow) to let newbie viewers begin filtering
e-commerce (accept RSVP deposits)
integrate ioT dashboards and chatbots
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro
@pcuci what's the migration intended for _posts now? What's blog to be, generally?
Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
The weekly newsletter
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro
oh, good, an option to send a newsletter out. Curated by several.
Answers to newbies, is hot new need.
Too many needs. Burden on reading if all queries get posted.
Can we have a ( Bot Chatbot Slackbot https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xiaoice )
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro
Can we have a terminal event and a preceding "stream" of smaller events that feed into the termination.
Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
@David-Ro should be able to link events to one another, or use categories (an umbrella filter) to see just that one event stream
David Rowley 514
@David-Ro

I think the ability to display any/every/thing in 2 or 3 languages at same time on same page
has to be abstractized to make it core before anything else.
e.g.
title of project
address
any button

Example: In Jordan the map (any map) has both Arabic and English here and there: not consistent. We can do this 10x better.

Paul Cuciureanu
@pcuci
Yeah, it's just a lot of work. For links, it can be on hover (another translation shows) - not all elements will have space for 2 languages
