  7. SaltyBones nyco, jcbrand I promised to poke you to do something... :)
  8. jcbrand I already did a blog post
  9. jcbrand https://opkode.com/blog/2018-xsf-summit/
  10. SaltyBones I know and that's awesome
  11. SaltyBones it just seemed to me that you had some other ideas you possibly wanted to follow-up on, right?

  14. jcbrand SaltyBones: I have a TODO list
  15. jcbrand I appreciate the sentiment, but I don't need to be poked :)
  16. SaltyBones Yeah, that's not the main intention of course. :)
  17. SaltyBones I just thought maybe we should share the ideas that everybody had....
  18. SaltyBones or has
  19. 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
  20. jcbrand Potentially one could put more things in the newsletter, like updates to XEPs
  21. jcbrand but that's more work
  22. jcbrand and I think I'll leave that out at first, unless someone else volunteers to collect that info
  23. jcbrand That's what I signed up for and what I'll do
  24. jcbrand Anything else from me would be a bonus
  25. jcbrand and not anything I'm planning to do
  26. SaltyBones awesome
  27. SaltyBones do you an idea on how to collect those articles?
  28. SaltyBones do you have an idea on how to collect those articles?
  29. jcbrand I follow tweets about XMPP, mastodon toots about XMPP, the r/xmpp subreddit and the Planet Jabber RSS feed
  30. jcbrand If you find anything interesting, you could also post it here
  31. jcbrand And I'll include it
  32. SaltyBones do you intend to collect things on the go or just search those sources when you write the newsletter?
  33. jcbrand A bit of both
  34. jcbrand I already have a list
  35. jcbrand but I expect to also scour those sources when I compose the newsletter
  36. jcbrand You can send me stuff at any time, and I'll simply put it on the list I already ahve
  37. jcbrand I'll also include non-English blog posts, since there are sometimes French and German articles I think
  38. SaltyBones I really liked this: https://demo.agayon.be/
  39. SaltyBones and somebody noted yesterday that the new nextcloud chat uses xmpp
  40. SouL Mathieui
  41. 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 :)
  42. SouL Hah
  43. SouL I was not trying to point anything
  44. SouL Just in case you wanted to know who
  45. jcbrand SaltyBones: I saved the demo, although I don't think it makes sense to point to a github search in the newsletter :)
  46. jcbrand If they blog about it then we'll obviously include it
  47. SaltyBones i think it makes sense to store it $somewhere
  48. SaltyBones to have a list of people/companies/tech that use xmpp
  49. SaltyBones it sometimes comes in handy
  50. SaltyBones advert is https://nextcloud.com/talk/
  51. jcbrand ok, I saved that
  52. jcbrand has left
  53. 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

  56. nyco so what newsletter service do we wanna use?
  57. nyco and most important question, why would we do a newsletter? what for?
  58. nyco I guess we wanna measure the number of subscribers, the open rate, click through rate... so that we know better our audiences
  59. nyco but a newsletter is in a close field, whereas a blog with its social network propagation is more public, searchable, findable
  60. jcbrand has joined
  61. SaltyBones hm...jcbrand, did you have an actual e-mail newsletter in mind?
  62. SaltyBones maybe we can just augment it with a blog post somewhere which has the same content with more colors
  63. 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
  64. jcbrand AFAIK
  65. SaltyBones yeah, that's basically what I had in mind as well.
  66. SaltyBones There is always a "if this doesn't display properly go to" link
