[09:57:18] <SaltyBones> nyco, jcbrand I promised to poke you to do something... :)
[09:57:49] <jcbrand> I already did a blog post
[09:58:10] <jcbrand> https://opkode.com/blog/2018-xsf-summit/
[10:01:09] <SaltyBones> I know and that's awesome
[10:01:33] <SaltyBones> it just seemed to me that you had some other ideas you possibly wanted to follow-up on, right?
[10:02:35] *** jcbrand has left the room
[10:03:28] *** jcbrand has joined the room
[10:04:19] <jcbrand> SaltyBones: I have a TODO list
[10:04:51] <jcbrand> I appreciate the sentiment, but I don't need to be poked :)
[10:05:22] <SaltyBones> Yeah, that's not the main intention of course. :)
[10:05:53] <SaltyBones> I just thought maybe we should share the ideas that everybody had....
[10:05:58] <SaltyBones> or has
[10:08:20] <jcbrand> My intention is to create a newsletter which posts once every two weeks or so and which lists articles on XMPP from those last two weeks
[10:08:20] <jcbrand> Potentially one could put more things in the newsletter, like updates to XEPs
[10:08:20] <jcbrand> but that's more work
[10:08:20] <jcbrand> and I think I'll leave that out at first, unless someone else volunteers to collect that info
[10:08:38] <jcbrand> That's what I signed up for and what I'll do
[10:08:49] <jcbrand> Anything else from me would be a bonus
[10:08:58] <jcbrand> and not anything I'm planning to do
[10:11:15] <SaltyBones> awesome
[10:11:42] <SaltyBones> do you an idea on how to collect those articles?
[10:12:04] <SaltyBones> do you have an idea on how to collect those articles?
[10:14:23] <jcbrand> I follow tweets about XMPP, mastodon toots about XMPP, the r/xmpp subreddit and the Planet Jabber RSS feed
[10:14:43] <jcbrand> If you find anything interesting, you could also post it here
[10:15:15] <jcbrand> And I'll include it
[10:19:06] <SaltyBones> do you intend to collect things on the go or just search those sources when you write the newsletter?
[10:19:47] <jcbrand> A bit of both
[10:19:47] <jcbrand> I already have a list
[10:20:00] <jcbrand> but I expect to also scour those sources when I compose the newsletter
[10:20:28] <jcbrand> You can send me stuff at any time, and I'll simply put it on the list I already ahve
[10:26:12] <jcbrand> I'll also include non-English blog posts, since there are sometimes French and German articles I think
[10:29:42] <SaltyBones> I really liked this: https://demo.agayon.be/
[10:30:58] <SaltyBones> and somebody noted yesterday that the new nextcloud chat uses xmpp
[10:32:27] <SouL> Mathieui
[10:33:15] <SaltyBones> well, if we want references, ‎[23:43:30] ‎jjrh‎: mathieui, https://github.com/nextcloud/server/search?q=xmpp&type=Issues&utf8=%E2%9C%93 XMPP it seems :)
[10:37:23] <SouL> Hah
[10:37:43] <SouL> I was not trying to point anything
[10:37:58] <SouL> Just in case you wanted to know who
[10:41:16] <jcbrand> SaltyBones: I saved the demo, although I don't think it makes sense to point to a github search in the newsletter :)
[10:41:31] <jcbrand> If they blog about it then we'll obviously include it
[10:41:48] <SaltyBones> i think it makes sense to store it $somewhere
[10:42:03] <SaltyBones> to have a list of people/companies/tech that use xmpp
[10:42:08] <SaltyBones> it sometimes comes in handy
[10:44:28] <SaltyBones> advert is https://nextcloud.com/talk/
[10:45:47] <jcbrand> ok, I saved that
[11:29:22] *** jcbrand has left the room
[12:54:38] <SaltyBones> https://camaya.net/contact/ <- maybe we should also collect people who do this kind of thing to consider asking them for what they need or ask them to write about stuff or to invite them for the birthday conf
[13:42:00] *** Nÿco has left the room
[13:43:51] *** Nÿco has joined the room
[14:08:24] <nyco> so what newsletter service do we wanna use?
[14:08:35] <nyco> and most important question, why would we do a newsletter? what for?
[14:09:09] <nyco> I guess we wanna measure the number of subscribers, the open rate, click through rate... so that we know better our audiences
[14:09:44] <nyco> but a newsletter is in a close field, whereas a blog with its social network propagation is more public, searchable, findable
[14:40:01] *** jcbrand has joined the room
[15:11:36] <SaltyBones> hm...jcbrand, did you have an actual e-mail newsletter in mind?
[15:12:31] <SaltyBones> maybe we can just augment it with a blog post somewhere which has the same content with more colors
[15:13:54] <jcbrand> The newsletters that I am subscribed to are also available on the web, so you can read either the email or go to their website
[15:13:56] <jcbrand> AFAIK
[15:22:16] <SaltyBones> yeah, that's basically what I had in mind as well.
[15:22:26] <SaltyBones> There is always a "if this doesn't display properly go to" link
