We had such a lovely time in our room that we decided to make it a permanent thing! ✨

Behold, a general chatroom: 🎉🎉

So far there have been interesting discussions about topics like , , , , , but also non-tech topics. It's at a different pace than , so they compliment each other nicely.

There's an open door policy, so anyone is welcome to join 😊

Btw the channel name is 'AFediverseChat', for anyone coming from a different Matrix server!


Hey @cwebber

just a wish: The people love the #activitypub assembly at #rC3 and it was hard to leave it this morning to sleep a bit.

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.

et al.

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.

@jaywink @person I'm trying to integrate irc and xmpp, but would you happen to know how to do that? In the Bridges menu I only see irc, which gives me the following options:

@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 from XMPP and it just works.

the full channel name being #afediversechat ? Just joined that one. Thanks for tooting. I'm exited by the new ActivityPub-Matrix bridge enabled by #SocialHome
But I need some tutorials to really understand how hudge is this new feature.

@Gina was looking for a way to create app-agnostic link for this room but can't find the way.. it's somewhere on site
