Behold, a general #fediverse chatroom: https://app.element.io/#/room/#afediversechat:matrix.org 🎉🎉
So far there have been interesting discussions about topics like #foss, #federation, #opensource, #phones, #OS, but also non-tech topics. It's at a different pace than #mastodon, so they compliment each other nicely.
There's an open door policy, so anyone is welcome to join 😊
On day 2 most bugs are gone.
We should also make it a permanent thing for example for W3C Social CG or to keep on inviting SOLID (never give up) or matrix so that communities can come together at any open door.
We have more events today:
Come Together. A.P. and their implementors at rc3 :
@Gina I'd much appreciate if you bridge it with xmpp and irc if you didn't already and if doing so is not difficult.
@person Good idea, I'll look into this tonight. Have to study now for the most useless certificate of my career, BiSL. 🎉
@Gina Feel free to ping me if you need help with those 👍 I'm somewhat involved in the Matrix community, working for Element, so can help where needed.
@Gina Just in case you missed my message - that room is rather busy :)
You need to first create a room on Freenode side, then type in that room in the bridges setup after you choose Freenode, then it will ask for a nick that is admin there. Then the bridge will be created.
For XMPP, that seems to not need anything special. Just tell people to join #firstname.lastname@example.org from XMPP and it just works.
@https://misskey.m544.net/users/5c87cadb3e81137278320f1a I wouldn't call it a feature yet ;) Alooooong way off, very very early wip.
@Gina was looking for a way to create app-agnostic link for this room but can't find the way.. it's somewhere on matrix.org site
