@jeremycherfas I wonder if any other kind of bridge is possible for the IndieWebCamp channels. I connect via Slack and it seems like several other people do as well.
Don't worry! The IndieWebCamp Slack bridge isn't going anywhere! That is a gateway I wrote that uses the Slack API directly. The thing they're shutting off is being able to connect to slack with an IRC client.
@aaronpk@verso and I were trying to come up with the equivalent of the Green Dragon, since we are calling it Microblog and Microbrew! I like Lucky Lab, but it is admittedly noisy and the food options are meh.
Does the new Rogue not work for meetups anymore? I've only been there once since the change. There's also Loyal Legion maybe?
@aaronpk I haven't been to Rogue with a group, but it could work. Maybe we should try that. How many Homebrewers would you expect. I think the Microbloggers will be a small contingent to start. @verso: thoughts?
We were usually around 4-7 people last year, and did just monthly meetups. Part of the reason I haven't re-started them this year is it's a lot of work without a co-host!
I think my favorite new weird feature of Aperture is the ability to switch it into "Demo Mode" which will hide certain channels from view and from Microsub clients. This comes in handy when taking screenshots and doing presentations where I don't want to reveal some of my private channels I have!
@aaronpk that’s looking wondrous. Any tips on running it, or is it still too flaky?
"Flaky" isn't the word I would use, how about "experimental"? 😄 I've committed to using it every day for the last week or so, and even turned off a bunch of my IRC sources to force myself to use it. It is changing rapidly though as I keep adding features, so it's not exactly "stable."
