Paul Webb When I'm coding on my MBP, having my iMac display fullscreen videos of Deus Ex: Human Revolution/Mankind Divided soundtracks from Gaming Ambience on YouTube is super nice.

Miso What project are you all working on these days?
Paul Webb I'm working on V2 of socii.network, I hope to be done in Q1 of this year.

🏃‍♂️ Lucian Marin I will continue working on Sublevel. There's a list of features (github.com/lucianm...) I want to add on GitHub. Hopefully you will make Socii public so I can join and promote it.
Paul Webb Hey Lucian! I'm currently working on making the infrastructure better. I've felt limited with Express and just discovered the beauty that is fastify and choo. Currently revamping the marketing site. Socii will become public once I add notifications.

🏃‍♂️ Lucian Marin Cambridge Analytica is shutting down, Facebook is just fine. This is the world we live in, the big guys always win. I wish someone would have the courage to shut down Facebook. MZ is smiling in our faces, again and again and again.
Paul Webb FB is too big to fail, just like the oil companies. However, it's big enough to die slowly...just like the oil companies. As long as there are people like us creating alternatives, everything will turn out okay in the end.
Paul Webb I like the subtle updates made here!

Seth Kontny october 29th is my birthday as well.
🏃‍♂️ Lucian Marin Peepeth (peepeth.com/_) is so idealistic that you can't edit or delete anything from it. Developers are building all kinds of things in the name of freedom, but users aren't actually free.
Paul Webb I found scrolling on that site jarring. I kept seeing the same posts over and over again, started to give me a headache.

🏃‍♂️ Lucian Marin I'm using a Gmail filter that searches and labels mails that contain the word "unsubscribe". It skips the inbox then I check it later to see if I received something worthy.
Paul Webb Oh wow, that's not a bad idea! I wonder if I can do this in Postbox.

☕ David Antoine Indeed! I also watched "Altered Carbon", liked it a lot...
Paul Webb I have yet to watch that, too busy coding!

🏃‍♂️ Lucian Marin I want to create a chat based app that works exactly like IRC. Slack, but public. Reddit, but no threads. Sublevel, but not social. Convore was the closest thing to this, but I'm not sure why they give up.
Paul Webb Money is always the motive convore-blog.tumbl...

😀 Tom I've been waiting for months to get a burger at a particular resturant. Today I finally had an excuse to go. After I placed my order and waited a bit, I found out the kitchen had a fire while making my order and the kitchen was closed for the rest of the evening :-( Here's to waiting another month or so :-/
Paul Webb Yeesh! What restaurant is this?

😀 Tom I'm conflicted. When I move back to Texas soon, I want to devote time to work on personal projects, but I also want to get involved with volunteering (Scouts). I feel like I can only choose one if I really want to dedicate myself to it. This is going to be on top of work which already has a hectic schedule.
Paul Webb Is there a way you could (realistically) cut back on work?

🤔 John Hey, I've been watching for updates! Hadn't seen that the alpha was up. Looks great so far!
Paul Webb I've been writing blog posts and sending out newsletters bi-weekly to share what I've learned and product updates.

🏃‍♂️ Lucian Marin Implementation is key, not ideas. I really liked a lot of social networks at first, but once they grown the experience suffered.
Paul Webb How has the experience suffered, to you?

🤔 John AFAIK you're the only one of us who's actually created a social network! I've been kicking around some high level ideas in terms of network interaction, but I'm not interested (or capable if I'm honest) of building my own. I'm mostly curious if the people here, who lean more technical than my Twitter feed, are thinking about the same kinds of limitations in existing social nets.
Paul Webb I'm building one at socii.network! You can see it in action at hub.socii.network. It's not polished but I'm getting there.

🏃‍♂️ Lucian Marin I wish I didn't delete it from App Store in the first place. I didn't know it will be almost impossible to get it back. But there's a chance you can get it back using Purchased option from App Store.
Paul Webb Why did you delete it? Focusing more on web? Don't want to deal with walled gardens anymore?

🤔 John Logged back in here, and wishing I hadn't deleted the app. How's it going folks?
Paul Webb I had no idea the app was removed, I still have it on my phone.
