Creating an open community platform?
In our community are a lot "hands" willing to help for a lot of things. Therefore I would like to ask if there is an interest from Synthstrom that we, the community, try to help to create a new, better manageable and open platform for Synthstrom and the community.
Just one example, there are a lot people that would like to join the beta program and help on the work for the final release. But unfortunately they have good reasons not to join facebook.
If there is an interest we could start a suggestion and evaluation discussion, where community people suggests projects with some evaluation (not just dropping URLs)
1. Discourse (https://www.discourse.org/) as a free and open Forum Plattform
2. Write.as (https://write.as/) as a Blogging platform for articles from synthstrom and maybe articles from the community. Like medium.com
3. Social Network like Friendica https://friendi.ca/, Pleroma https://pleroma.social/ , Mastodon https://joinmastodon.org/ or some other as replacement for Facebook or Twitter
4. Gettogether https://gettogether.community/ or Molbilizon https://joinmobilizon.org/en/ as an event plattform, instead of Facebook or Meetup
There are a lot more Infos from the site https://framasoft.org/en/ (France) about tools for the community.
The biggest advantage of such opensource tools is, that they already using or start using a shared communication protocol called AcitivityPub https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ActivityPub or just RSS feeds https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS to communicate or publish.
So, if there is any interest on creating such a platform, maybe the community can help with their experience, their knowledge and their motivation to help. Because 3 eyes see more than just 2 eyes
May I ask your opinion @Ian_Jorgensen ?
