  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:55 a.m. banger : cool site

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:56 a.m. banger : after signing up i was redirected to the profile page, why not straight here?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:57 a.m. admin : thanks, will change that

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:05 a.m. thenanyu : hello

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:05 a.m. admin : hello

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:06 a.m. admin : came here from hn?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:06 a.m. thenanyu : yep

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:06 a.m. admin : unsuccessful show hn post though :)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:06 a.m. thenanyu : chances are always slim for this stuff

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:07 a.m. thenanyu : I'm on the hunt for a side project / business to work on with someone, any idea where to look?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:09 a.m. admin : finding cofounders is usually a bad idea, but you can try https://www.indiehackers.com/forum

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:09 a.m. admin : * on the internet

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:09 a.m. admin : are you a programmer?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:10 a.m. thenanyu : I program -- very hard to categorize myself these days

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:10 a.m. thenanyu : I ran a team for 5 years and I just started writing code again

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:10 a.m. admin : do you have an idea you want to explore or are looking for one?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:11 a.m. thenanyu : looking for one, all my ideas are lame (I feel)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:11 a.m. thenanyu : I always wished HN would have a live chat section

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:11 a.m. admin : share some of your ideas here, maybe I can give you some feedback

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:12 a.m. admin : "I always wished HN would have a live chat section" , I hope to make this the chat room of choice for hn users :)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:13 a.m. admin : a long way to go before that happens

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:13 a.m. thenanyu : I never liked semi-public slack teams

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:14 a.m. thenanyu : too hard to pop in and out

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:15 a.m. admin : can you expand on what else you don't like about semi-public slack teams? and what would you want to see in an alternative?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:15 a.m. thenanyu : they either become attention sinks, or you quickly lose context

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:15 a.m. thenanyu : there's no jumping off point to hop into a conversation or discussion

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:16 a.m. thenanyu : HN articles are a good entry point, since there's a lot of churn and new threads are constantly starting

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:17 a.m. thenanyu : I kind of like the idea behind spectrum (https://spectrum.chat/) but it's also too rooted in the Slack / IRC concept

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:17 a.m. admin : maintaining context in a chatroom is hard, easier in forums

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:18 a.m. darioush : I think if you were to identify "themes" that HN articles fit into

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:18 a.m. darioush : that may be a better level for rooms

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:19 a.m. thenanyu : respectfully disagree -- I think that adds too much pre-processing mental load

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:19 a.m. thenanyu : that's basically what Spectrum does

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:20 a.m. admin : darioush : that's a good idea, but to start with I'll keep in a single room since there are hardly any visitors. If I manage to grow the site, that might make sense

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:21 a.m. admin : The plan is to allow user created topics (like subreddits ) which have a chat room + forum, but it only makes once I have more users

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:22 a.m. admin : I want to try on focus on getting the crypto communities to host parallel communities on my site

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:22 a.m. admin : they care a lot about transparent moderation (the whole btc vs bch is a big deal)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:24 a.m. admin : the existing forums don't work very well. some communities use combinations of reddit, slack, discourse, irc, discord, rocket chat, custom forums etc. it's all over the place

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:25 a.m. admin : 12 onlookers online, come join the chat!

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:30 a.m. admin : darioush : if you have any questions related to programming or any projects you're working on, fell free to ask them here

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:37 a.m. admin : 14 people watching this chat, join! The signup link is in the top right corner

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:51 a.m. admin : hello nath

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:52 a.m. nath : howdy

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:53 a.m. nath : did you manually code the colours (e.g. blue = #007bff) for a specific reason?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:54 a.m. admin : it's the default colours in bootstrap 4 : https://getbootstrap.com/docs/4.0/utilities/colors/

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:55 a.m. admin : just used the bootstrap to get the first version up

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:55 a.m. admin : Welcome Kronuz

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:56 a.m. admin : just to give people new here an overview of the site : it's a chat room to discuss anything related to tech and entrepreneurship

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:56 a.m. Kronuz : Hello there

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:56 a.m. admin : if you're working on any projects or have any programming related questions, feel free to asking them

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:58 a.m. admin : Kronuz and nath, anything you're working on or any topic you want to talk about?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:58 a.m. Kronuz : Been working on Xapiand: https://github.com/Kronuz/Xapiand

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:58 a.m. admin : to the 14 people watching this chat, signup!

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:59 a.m. Kronuz : Similar to Elasticsearch, but based in Xapian search engine and written in c++

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5 a.m. viztor : hola :)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5 a.m. admin : cool project, are you working on it full time?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:01 a.m. admin : welcome viztor!

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:02 a.m. Kronuz : Sometimes full time

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:03 a.m. admin : nice, do you plan offering a hosted version?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:03 a.m. Kronuz : There are no plans about it yet

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:03 a.m. Kronuz : We need help with a website and documentation

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:03 a.m. admin : viztor, you can scroll to the top of the chat window to view the chat history

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:03 a.m. Kronuz : I’ll be back later, got to go now

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:04 a.m. Kronuz : You can reach me on Twitter at @germbravo

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:04 a.m. admin : sure, be sure to bookmark this site. Will be inviting more people to join the chatroom, lots of interesting discussions to follow!

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:05 a.m. Kronuz : I will

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:14 a.m. moslufricr : just saying

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:14 a.m. moslufricr : it's not so smart to have a signup system for a website made for "hackers"

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:15 a.m. moslufricr : depending on your interpretation of "hacker" though

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:17 a.m. admin : hacker as in programmer or an expert in their fields, not the type that ddos'es sites, involved in credit card theft etc

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:17 a.m. moslufricr : it's nice to see a website targeted for that kind of audience then

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:18 a.m. moslufricr : I trust that the appropriate security measures have been taken anyway

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:18 a.m. admin : yeah, the first version is essentially hacker news, but a chatroom instead of a forum

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:19 a.m. moslufricr : let us know if you open source it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:19 a.m. admin : I've talked a bit about the future plans with this site in the chat, scroll up and hit "Load previous messages" to view the history

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:19 a.m. admin : it's already open source

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:20 a.m. moslufricr : oh, you should put the link on here buddy

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:20 a.m. moslufricr : or maybe I'm just blind

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:20 a.m. admin : I haven't linked it since the repo needs proper tests, automated builds, docs and contribution guidelines. Link : https://github.com/ploggingdev/boredhackers

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:21 a.m. moslufricr : ah yeah I see it's quite barebones still

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:21 a.m. admin : once I have that up, I'll link it from this site

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:21 a.m. admin : yeah, just a hacky first version

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:21 a.m. moslufricr : I would have liked to do some backend, but I am a Node dev

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:21 a.m. moslufricr : I can do some Vue/React frontend though if you'd like

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:22 a.m. admin : ah, I'm not too familiar with either of those,

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:22 a.m. admin : so, are you working on any projects? open source or otherwise

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:23 a.m. moslufricr : haha I worked on some open source stuff in the past, going proprietary

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:23 a.m. moslufricr : looking to build a startup but am lackluster for ideas

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:23 a.m. admin : share your ideas here, maybe I can give you some ideas

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:23 a.m. admin : * feedback

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:24 a.m. moslufricr : well I was firstly thinking some kind of easy analytics

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:24 a.m. moslufricr : but that market is already saturated, with Google Analytics and so forth

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:25 a.m. admin : there's always space for another product, as long as you're doing something slightly different or incrementally better

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:25 a.m. admin : the biggest problem is getting people to use your products

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:25 a.m. moslufricr : space for another product, but not space for another successful produt

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:25 a.m. moslufricr : product*

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:27 a.m. moslufricr : so now I'm just kinda surfing, learning some Rust

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:28 a.m. admin : successful product as well. I used to have the same views as you regarding crowded markets, but it's not true. lots of successful analytics products being built all the time.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:28 a.m. admin : have you started learning rust?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:28 a.m. moslufricr : I have, yeah. I built a simple image processing utility

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:28 a.m. moslufricr : ~50 SLOC, nothing incredible

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:29 a.m. admin : nice, do you have it on github?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:29 a.m. moslufricr : I use GitLab these days due to it being opensrc

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:29 a.m. moslufricr : currently it's a private project as it has a very specific use case

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:30 a.m. admin : ok. since you eventually plan to build a startup, it might be a good idea to start sharing your projects in relevant communities, helps you build an audience

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:31 a.m. admin : 14 people enjoying this chatroom, join! signup link in the top right corner

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:31 a.m. moslufricr : I guess so yeah... but I don't think anything I currently have would be of interest

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:32 a.m. moslufricr : plus all of my online profiles are anonymised, so no audience really

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:35 a.m. moslufricr : also, we are very lucky that this chat hasn't been spammed yet

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:36 a.m. admin : not many people know about this chatroom yet, literally deployed the code yesterday

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:37 a.m. admin : hopefully spam won't be a problem anytime soon, otherwise I'll need to pass the chat messages through akismet or something else

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:38 a.m. moslufricr : I hope so too, but I guarantee it will be a problem eventually

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:39 a.m. moslufricr : especially since it's easy to connect with your own WS client and do as you wish

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:40 a.m. admin : you should bookmark this site, I'll be inviting more users to join the chat so we can have some interesting discussions.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:41 a.m. moslufricr : pardon me for a sec, just want to make sure it's not vulnerable to XSS

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:41 a.m. moslufricr : looking at the source it should be ok

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:42 a.m. admin : sure, check

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:42 a.m. moslufricr : <script>console.log('xss')</script>

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:42 a.m. moslufricr : yup all good there

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:42 a.m. admin : 17 people watching this chatroom, join!

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:43 a.m. x : *17 hackers are bored now

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:43 a.m. admin : signup : https://www.boredhackers.com/register/

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:44 a.m. admin : x : yeah, name makes sense now :)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:45 a.m. moslufricr : there seems to be a bug

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:45 a.m. moslufricr : if I go back to this page using the browser navigation, the chat won't load the latest messages

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:47 a.m. admin : moslufricr : if you visit the profile page and come back here, it doesn't load the latest messages?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:47 a.m. admin : Welcome user `nobody

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:48 a.m. nobody : Seems to have worked for me

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:48 a.m. moslufricr : it seems if I go to any page and then come back here, it doesnt

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:49 a.m. admin : the cool part about pseudonymous chat is people can get creative with usernames and talk openly. no judgement

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:49 a.m. nobody : What’s the impl like?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:49 a.m. admin : moslufricr : sometimes the page gets cached, sometimes it works fine. i'll see what I can do

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:50 a.m. admin : nobody : what's impl?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:50 a.m. OrionBlastar : All my messages are gone after I leave the page.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:51 a.m. nobody : Implementation, language, etc.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:51 a.m. admin : OrionBlastar : you can scroll to the top the chat window and click "Load previous messages". it's all there

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:52 a.m. admin : nobody : python django postgrs redis bootstrap

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:52 a.m. admin : using django channels to implement the chat

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:52 a.m. OrionBlastar : I clicked load previous a few times and they are not there. I should have a link on my profile to show my messages to make it easy to find them.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:52 a.m. nobody : Ahh. I also just saw your Twitter acct. :-)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:53 a.m. moslufricr : I will be honest, i think the project needs a bit of a refractor

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:53 a.m. moslufricr : but its a cool proof-of-concept

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:53 a.m. admin : OrionBlastar : there were lots of messages since you were here, so you'll have to scrollback quite a bit. I'll eventually add an easy to find your own messages

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:54 a.m. nobody : Pretty cool. I like the idea

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:54 a.m. admin : nobody : not too active there, now I have my own community site!

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:55 a.m. admin : moslufricr : definitely, will be working on it a lot more in the coming weeks

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:56 a.m. admin : Friendly reminder to everyone : bookmark this site, will be inviting more people to join and lots of interesting discussions to follow

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:56 a.m. admin : getting a community site off the ground is hard, so it's a slow process

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:57 a.m. moslufricr : man its 6am and I havent slept yet

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:58 a.m. admin : moslufricr : get some sleep

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 5:59 a.m. admin : the advantage of allowing people to just watch the chat without signup/login is that they can idle and only join when they are comfortable

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 6 a.m. nobody : I just sent the link to a couple people

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 6 a.m. nobody : I’m going to keep a tab open

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 6 a.m. admin : if i tried starting a community using slack, most people wouldn't get past the invitation page

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 6:01 a.m. admin : nobody : thanks a lot, always best to grow the community organically. appreciate it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 6:03 a.m. admin : I should get around to linking this site in my blog, hopefully some of the readers will join this community

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 6:03 a.m. nobody : You’re welcome. I’m working some ideas with the same spirit, but nothing public yet. The holiday break wasn’t long enough.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 6:04 a.m. admin : nobody : once you have something ready, share it here, I can give you some feedback

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 6:05 a.m. admin : 12 people enjoying this conversation, join : https://www.boredhackers.com/register/

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 6:10 a.m. moslufricr : https://gitlab.com/EVgnXmBH9SRn/speedlane

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 6:12 a.m. admin : does it use nodejs for the server?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 6:13 a.m. moslufricr : yeah

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 6:19 a.m. admin : I'll be offline for a bit, but you can post messages here and I'll reply when I get back online. don't forget to bookmark this page :)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 6:27 a.m. admin : People watching this chat, signup and continue the conversation : https://www.boredhackers.com/register/

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 7:09 a.m. lowlevel : I think you should move to slack and just have something that exposes it to a simple page like this ... using this is pretty awful vs slack/irc :/ best of luck

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 7:40 a.m. admin : lowlevel : this is the first version, will work on improving it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 7:41 a.m. admin : 17 people watching, join the chatroom to discuss anything related to tech and startups https://www.boredhackers.com/register/

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:03 a.m. Avaer : finding good cofounders is a bitch

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:06 a.m. Avaer : Moddable multiplayer Javascript VR

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:06 a.m. Avaer : long story

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:08 a.m. Avaer : but finding good people who don't quit is a pain

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:09 a.m. admin : do have a link to your startup?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:10 a.m. Avaer : nothing launched yet

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:10 a.m. admin : would be interested to learn more about what you're working on

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:11 a.m. admin : yup, finding good cofounders is hard. preferably try someone within your network

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:11 a.m. Avaer : Highly outdated and not documented, but https://github.com/modulesio/zeo

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:11 a.m. Avaer : I'm not in the valley atm, so no real "network"

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:12 a.m. Avaer : I'm worked with friends before, but everyone seems to want the prestige of being a founder, while doing none of the work of being a founder

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:12 a.m. Avaer : other than me -- I just end up doing all of the work and telling people what to do

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:13 a.m. Avaer : which basically makes me a solo founder in practice, every time

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:14 a.m. admin : so it's a game that you plan to launch on steam. sounds interesting. consider putting up a few screenshots of what it would look like.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:14 a.m. Avaer : no, it's not a game

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:14 a.m. Avaer : and it's iffy whether it will be on steam

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:14 a.m. Avaer : that's the highly outdated part

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:14 a.m. admin : ah, ok

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:15 a.m. admin : if you can make progress alone and get a basic mvp ready, that would be great. so you are doing this full time?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:16 a.m. Avaer : for over a year, and yes

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:16 a.m. Avaer : it's complicated stuff, and it's already been through many failed iterations

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:16 a.m. Avaer : also a couple of cofounders who bailed :)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:16 a.m. admin : 6500 commits, looks like you put in a lot of work

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:17 a.m. Avaer : that's one out of like 10 repos

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:17 a.m. Avaer : there's a whole backend to it too

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:17 a.m. Avaer : the thing is I can do this alone, which is both a blessing and a curse

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:19 a.m. admin : I would suggest putting up a good landing page and put up some pictures to explain the product and you can also collect emails from users.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:20 a.m. Avaer : thanks, I had about 10 of those already

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:20 a.m. Avaer : which is why it's already been through many failed pitches

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:20 a.m. Avaer : I'm just cranking on the next iteration

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:21 a.m. admin : so what's the new direction with the product? I know it's complicated, but it helps to have a simple explanation that the average user can understand

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:22 a.m. admin : 19 people enjoying this conversation, join the conversation here and share your thoughts : https://www.boredhackers.com/register/

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:26 a.m. admin : welcome user `fuccboi

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:27 a.m. token_female : Sup

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:27 a.m. fuccboi : ayy

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:27 a.m. fuccboi : U wan sum fucc?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:27 a.m. admin : welcome user `token_female

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:28 a.m. token_female : Greetings administrator

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:28 a.m. token_female : What are we all working on?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:28 a.m. admin : if you want to talk about anything tech, startup related, this is the place.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:28 a.m. Avaer : elevator pitch: an VR/AR platform where everything around you is interactive Javascript objects. you can either: a) subscribe to get an ecosystem of VR/AR/MR content you can download and shape around you, or b) write those JS objects (npm modules) and get automatically paid (via stripe) whenever they're used

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:28 a.m. fuccboi : Slowly killing myself for the next 40-50 years

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:29 a.m. Avaer : it actually supports pretty much every platform already, including running in the browser, as well as native

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:29 a.m. Avaer : so that's what I'm working on

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:29 a.m. admin : I'm working on this site along with https://www.hostedcomments.com/

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:29 a.m. token_female : You tell people in the elevator about your javascript objects?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:29 a.m. admin : what about you taken `token_female?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:30 a.m. Avaer : if they're hackers yes ;)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:30 a.m. Avaer : if they're not then I whip out the phone and do an AR demo

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:31 a.m. admin : Avaer : so developers can create npm modules to be used on you platform?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:32 a.m. token_female : I like jazz

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:33 a.m. Avaer : I'd give it a C

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:33 a.m. token_female : Not a B?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:34 a.m. Avaer : admin: yah, it's literally publish a module, add a phone number + debit card, and you get paid when your module is used in VR/AR by subscribers

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:34 a.m. token_female : Yeah but does html injection <i>work</i>?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:35 a.m. admin : Avaer : now that makes a lot of sense and is easier to understand

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:35 a.m. admin : token_female : nope, only urls get turned to link eg- https://www.boredhackers.com/

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:36 a.m. token_female : https://www.im<i>trick</i>y.com

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:37 a.m. admin : bee_movie : I'll delete the message you posted, it muddies the discussion. post links to external content if it's longer than a few sentences

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:39 a.m. admin : if you guys have any feedback about this website, let me know, I'll see what I can do

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:39 a.m. Avaer : admin: make it anonymous login-able

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:40 a.m. admin : Avaer : I'll have to think about that, but for now users can use throwaway email addresses

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:40 a.m. Avaer : I know, mine wasn't verified

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:40 a.m. Avaer : but the point is most people probably won't fork over anyway

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:41 a.m. admin : Yup, no verification is not required for now.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:41 a.m. admin : * Yup, verification is not required for now.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:41 a.m. Avaer : so it sounds like it might as well be anon

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:41 a.m. Avaer : making people provide email was a big user killer for my platform

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:41 a.m. Avaer : in terms of trying

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:42 a.m. Avaer : but I do understand the collecting emails

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:42 a.m. Avaer : what worked for me is anon login plus a nag after a timeout

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:42 a.m. admin : yeah it's basically anon, so far most people provided their real email ids though

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:44 a.m. admin : the next step with this site is to improve the design and also build a forum alongside the chatroom. after that, user's will be allowed to create their own communities, like how it's done on reddit. each community will have a chatroom + forum

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:44 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : sup

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:45 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : why recreating the same stuff over and over

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:45 a.m. Avaer : admin: you've got a huge hill to climb

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:45 a.m. Avaer : everyone's already on slack/discord and reddit

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:45 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : there is need to open chatroom like that even without any login

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:45 a.m. admin : I'm going to implement transparent moderation and then try and get crypto communities to host on my site

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:46 a.m. Avaer : I'm not sure people want transparent moderation

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:46 a.m. Avaer : reddit works because mods make their own rules

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:46 a.m. admin : tyl_mighty_slash : that's one of the big advantages, people can watch the chatroom without logging in

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:47 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah cool what you guys doin irl

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:47 a.m. Avaer : coding

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:47 a.m. admin : transparent moderation is a big deal in the crypto community. especially since the btc-bch fork. people accuse each other of censorship

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:48 a.m. Avaer : hm that is true

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:48 a.m. admin : most crypto communities use different combinations of slack/discord/reddit/discource/custom forums etc

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:48 a.m. Avaer : but the people calling the shots probably prefer to censor

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:48 a.m. token_female : Yeah but crypto is a ponzi scheme atm

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:48 a.m. admin : providing a better experience and catering to the the anon+transparent moderation is my plan

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:49 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : obv coding haha

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:49 a.m. token_female : So obviously controlling media is going to be necessary for anyone already sunk

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:49 a.m. token_female : "invested"

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:49 a.m. Avaer : yeah I can understand the suckers wanting to not be censored and to have moderation be transparent

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:49 a.m. Avaer : but the people with money and who control these platforms want the opposite

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:51 a.m. token_female : Transparent censorship crypto forums are pretty much irrelevant, since anyone who has actually got their money tied up in it will not be using it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:52 a.m. admin : so I want to start off with less popular cryptos and work my way up. I haven't tested if my assumptions to reality, but let's see how it goes

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:52 a.m. token_female : (So the forum will be an armchair chetto)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:52 a.m. token_female : *ghetto

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:52 a.m. admin : I literally launched the site yesterday

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:52 a.m. Avaer : token_female: agreed

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:53 a.m. Avaer : I can understand "bored hackers", that idea sounds waaaay more interesting to me than trying to solve crypto community censorship

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:53 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:54 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : its a huge work to reunite every tools who already exists

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:54 a.m. Avaer : tyl: wdym?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:54 a.m. admin : the direction of this site is stil open for discussion, so let me hear it : what do you want to see from this site? a chatroom only? would an attached forum interest you?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:55 a.m. token_female : admin: Don't let criticism dissuade you. Just do what you want :)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:55 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:55 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : totally

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:55 a.m. Avaer : forum less so

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:55 a.m. Avaer : here's a random idea I would love to see: people post their project, that becomes the topic of the chat for the next n minutes/hours/whatever

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:55 a.m. admin : token_female : definitely,

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:56 a.m. admin : but worth listening to different ideas

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:56 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : you need to be motivated by your project but for me bored hacker its like im coding since 4 hours on something every things on the www sounds pretty boring and maybe i want to have a quick escape with others coder who works on the same technos as me right now

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:56 a.m. Avaer : tyl: ah yes, that's exactly the kind of thing I was thinking

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:56 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : so it will be channels per techno

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:56 a.m. Avaer : yup

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:57 a.m. Avaer : or per project

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:57 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : im down to help build this

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:57 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:57 a.m. admin : Avaer : that sounds interesting. the issue with chat only is that it's hard to read previous threads without spending a lot of time going through all the previous messages

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:57 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah but the thing is to focus on real time

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:57 a.m. admin : so I thought a forum might be an easier way to keep context

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:57 a.m. token_female : Avaer: That sounds fun. How do you manage the quality of the discussion though?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:57 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : because if we want archived topic and stuff its already there forum and stuff

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:58 a.m. Avaer : admin: yeah so you wouldn't have to, you could make it so that the current "topic" or project is sticky at the top of the page

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:58 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : maybe related messages only and you can see if the discussion is going somewhere

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:58 a.m. Avaer : I think managing the quality of discussion is all about staying on topic and keeping out spam

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:59 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : you go on a room every messages need to be related to the previous one and like that you build stories

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:59 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : lol

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:59 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : tnks dudeeee

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:59 a.m. Avaer : bee reverse engineered the websocket

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 8:59 a.m. token_female : I think these messages are out of order

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9 a.m. token_female : How 2 ban?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO KICK

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : xD

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9 a.m. admin : bee_movie : please stop

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9 a.m. Avaer : nah no need to kick, just antiflood

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9 a.m. token_female : Lol

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:01 a.m. Avaer : I don't think this is a tech problem tho, this is a community problem, this "bored hackers" thing

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:01 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : or its not a chat its just room for brainstorming and every messages go to multiples tags depending on the content

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:01 a.m. token_female : Avaer: I think that keeping quality high is more about ensuring that the correct people are talking, than about suppressing off-topic discussion

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:01 a.m. Avaer : who determines the correct person to talk?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:01 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yourself

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:01 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i dont want to talk to bee movie for ex

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:02 a.m. token_female : For example, there is a concept called "socrates cafe" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socrates_Cafe)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:02 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : nice

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:02 a.m. token_female : Basically it is an organisation for talking about interesting stuff

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:03 a.m. Avaer : eternal september always comes

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:03 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : is there is online version

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:03 a.m. token_female : No

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:03 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : honestly its been 10 min im just randomly chatting with you and it feel cool

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:03 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : thats the key concept

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:03 a.m. token_female : Anyway, what makes socrates cafe successful is usually the moderator

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:03 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : nothing organised

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:03 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : infinite scrollback

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:03 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : good ui

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:04 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : you copy paste info that you want

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:04 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : maybe rating online

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:04 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : users

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:04 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : like that you know which persons always shoot right

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:04 a.m. token_female : > The mod asks on point questions and brings research and cross examines ideas, etc.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:05 a.m. token_female : (Unlike in most online forums where the mods duty is just to delete things that are bad)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:05 a.m. Avaer : I see

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:05 a.m. Avaer : the moderator's job sounds like an actual job in that case

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:05 a.m. admin : 12 people enjoying the chat, join now : https://www.boredhackers.com/register/

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:06 a.m. token_female : Avaer: I'm just bringing up that example to show what I mean by it's the people that make it work rather than the policies

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:06 a.m. admin : socrates cafe sounds super interesting

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:07 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : so if you want to go on this path you need for every users to kinda list experiences and futures projects interest ?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:07 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : and then you create new project mixing up profiles

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:07 a.m. token_female : Avaer: If nobody is specifically trying to maintain the discussions quality usually things just become "who talks the loudest or fastest"

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:07 a.m. token_female : >e.g. bee_movie

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:07 a.m. Avaer : lol

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:08 a.m. Avaer : I agree

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:08 a.m. Harkan : Hi

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:08 a.m. Avaer : It's hard to scale this out though

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:08 a.m. Avaer : There's only so much time and energy a moderator can put into forums like these

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:09 a.m. admin : Hi Harkan

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:09 a.m. admin : I'll need to introduce community mods at some point

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:09 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : its always the same every experience is leaded by someone a moderator is an online leader for a chat place

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:09 a.m. Harkan : What are y'all discussing?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:10 a.m. Avaer : What "'bored hackers" means

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:10 a.m. token_female : It's definitely uneconomical for interesting people to spend all of their time posting on forums

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:10 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : or maybe saving messages and they pin under the text input and like that if you click on it you go back at this time of the convo and you can follow the story

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:10 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah but its good to have direct interaction with similar people

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:11 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : @Harkan where can this goes

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:11 a.m. admin : Avaer : scaling shoudn't be a problem with community mods + rate limiting + akismet or some spam filtering service

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:11 a.m. token_female : bee_movie: Usually when the mods are asleep

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:11 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : @bee_movie every interactions that you bringed where actually negative

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:11 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : its a chat born 24h ago

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:11 a.m. token_female : tyl_mighty_slash: Iunno I laughed

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:12 a.m. Avaer : admin: If the moderator is who makes the community, then I don't think it's granted you can just add more mods and keep the value of the forum

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:13 a.m. token_female : Speaking of shit-posting, does anyone else read n-gate.com?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:13 a.m. admin : 567 chat messages sent in the last 24 hours, not bad since most of my projects usually never go anywhere

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:14 a.m. admin : not counting yours :) I deleted almost 100 of yours

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:14 a.m. admin : with yours, closer to 700

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:15 a.m. Avaer : I like the idea of "bored hackers", I think that's the only draw for me

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:15 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i checked n-gate looks cool

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:15 a.m. admin : 11 people are enjoying this discussion, signup and join the chat!

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:15 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : hacker news offer so many news that you can make websites referencing the one that talk to you and add stuff to it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:15 a.m. Harkan : So what's the tech behind boredhackers admin?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:15 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : admin is on the promo

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:15 a.m. Avaer : a websocket

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:16 a.m. Avaer : this tech is basically a 1 hour project + heroku free tier for an experienced node dev

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:16 a.m. admin : django+postgres+redis+websockets+bootstrap

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:16 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : who build on nodejs ?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:16 a.m. Avaer : me

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:16 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : nice python rules

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:16 a.m. Avaer : lol whoa, that's way more tech than I was expecting

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:16 a.m. Avaer : this could be done with much less

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:16 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yea

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:16 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : haha

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:16 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : but who cares

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:16 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : admin choice

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:17 a.m. Avaer : yah I know, I just see a lot of my past self here

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:17 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : so whats a good advice

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:17 a.m. Avaer : fetishising the tech, when that's the least important part of getting a project off the ground

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:17 a.m. admin : it works fine, so doesn't matter too much. as long as all the bored hackers have a place to hangout

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:17 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i means its a solid config

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:18 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : why do you use redis tho

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:18 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : for sessions ?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:18 a.m. OrionBlastar : Our hacker chat like software is at http://k666.kr5ddit.com/ built with some of the same tools. It is more like a forum though.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:18 a.m. admin : I use django channels for the websocket stuff which requires redis. I also use redis for the presence (showing who's online)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:18 a.m. Avaer : if I launched something like this my advice to my past self would be "who cares about the tech, find out what people really want -- which is not the tech at all"

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:18 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ay

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:19 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : Avaer : the dude bulding the site care about the tech also because when you build on something who dosnt talk to you enjoying less my mantra

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:19 a.m. admin : Avaer : exactly, I learned that through many failed projects.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:20 a.m. Avaer : I bet I've failed more than you :)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:20 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : @OrionBlaster i dont really like the ui its too much stuff

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:20 a.m. admin : it's surprising in some ways that the project in which I put in the least effort has some traffic at all

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:20 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : whats ??

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:20 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : waht words in history

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:20 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : @OrionBlaster

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:21 a.m. Avaer : admin: it probably won't last, unless you find the grain of what's keeping people here

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:21 a.m. admin : I literally built this part time over a few days

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:21 a.m. Harkan : So what's next admin?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:21 a.m. admin : Avaer : what would make you come back here?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:21 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ill stay connected if the convo goes

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:21 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : not just where you wanna go

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:22 a.m. admin : Harkan : redesign the chatroom and build a forum alongside it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:22 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : do private room

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:22 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : where you can invite people on it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:22 a.m. Avaer : admin: what would bring me back is if the convo was consistently good

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:22 a.m. Avaer : meaning, I can open it anytime and have a good convo about bored hacking stuff

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:23 a.m. Avaer : that's a really really hard problem to solve though

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:23 a.m. admin : the only way this site is going to work is if users like yourselves check in regularly and continue contributing in good faith

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:23 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah well bee_movie the concepts of chat

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:23 a.m. Avaer : admin: indeed, so how do we incentivize this?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:23 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i mean im down

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:23 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ok whats an issue that youre having on a project right now

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:23 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : be quick

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:24 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : make it generally understandable

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:24 a.m. Avaer : tyl: who are you asking?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:24 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : everyone in this room

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:24 a.m. Avaer : ok, I want to know how to find good cofounders that don't flake

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:24 a.m. Avaer : that's my problem

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:24 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : im an hacker im bored i still wanna think about hacking but nothing that i work on makes me feel nice

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:24 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : hahaha

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:24 a.m. admin : I'm going to start inviting interesting people to join the site. mostly people who are working on startups or are programmers

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:25 a.m. admin : If you people can invite others who think might enjoy the convo here, please do

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:25 a.m. admin : it's best to grow the site organically

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:25 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : @Avaer cofound what

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:25 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : where you from

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:26 a.m. Avaer : it doesn't matter, I'm asking generally

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:26 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : Paris personnaly

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:26 a.m. Avaer : I'm in canada

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:26 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : french or us ?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:26 a.m. Avaer : but that doesn't matter

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:26 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ay

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:26 a.m. Avaer : what I'm cofounding literally make location irrelevant; it's multiplayer VR in the browser

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:27 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : well a good cofounder is someone that you will work along and have fun in the same time but also have differents skills than you but also can be really enthousiasts about your propositions and dont pass his time to say no

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:27 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i m just sayin

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:27 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : so webgl at max

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:27 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i worked in a studio for vr

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:27 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : but desktop with unreal engine pretty boring

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:27 a.m. admin : also, could you guys put valid emails ids in your profile so I can send you the rare reminder email to check in?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:27 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : already did

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:27 a.m. admin : cool, thanks

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:28 a.m. Avaer : admin: same

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:28 a.m. Avaer : tyl: it also works native, but yes, also webgl

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:28 a.m. Harkan : I'm thinking about how I want to deploy a master slave solr configuration on aws. Also thinking if it would be worthwhile to run it on ecs...

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:28 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : @avaer vr and multi and game means big cuz there is so many assets in the game

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:28 a.m. Avaer : I'm not doing games

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:29 a.m. Avaer : and surprisingly light on the assets

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:29 a.m. admin : I hope to get around to linking this site in the footer of my blog. hopefully a few readers will join this community. I get a few hundred hits to that site

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:29 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i checked quicly solr i dosnt talk to me and kinda lazy to read everything can you explain quickly the goal

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:29 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : @Avaer ok cool

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:30 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : do you have something running already ?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:30 a.m. Avaer : yeah tons

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:30 a.m. Avaer : I've been hacking on this for over a year

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:30 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : did you tried the new lenovo headsert ?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:30 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : mixed reality

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:30 a.m. Avaer : no I haven't

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:30 a.m. Avaer : hololens yes

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:30 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : damn hes cool

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:30 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : hololens cool but the vision is too tiny

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:30 a.m. Avaer : yeah

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:31 a.m. Avaer : looking forward to magic leap

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:31 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : but the interaction are awesome and magic

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:31 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : to add gesture

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:31 a.m. Avaer : honestly what ML is doing is very close to what I am

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:31 a.m. Avaer : it's hotloaded interactive VR/AR/MR modules

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:31 a.m. Avaer : written in javascript

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:32 a.m. Avaer : that already exists

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:32 a.m. Avaer : japan's way ahead of you

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:32 a.m. admin : isn't magic leap the company that raised a few billion dollars with no launched product?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:32 a.m. admin : it gets ripped apart on hn a lot

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:32 a.m. Avaer : they announced recently

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:33 a.m. Avaer : but yes that's the one

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:33 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : are they making stories on something

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:33 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : or *

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:33 a.m. Avaer : stories? ML? no not really

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:33 a.m. admin : what do you think about the company?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:33 a.m. admin : vapourware or do you think it's doing something cool?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:34 a.m. Avaer : no I don't think so

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:34 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : im hacking on intel 3d capter

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:34 a.m. Avaer : admin: I think they are going to pave the way for the future of human computer interaction

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:34 a.m. Harkan : I think I would like coding in VR. The Logitech vr sdk seems kinda neat.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:34 a.m. Avaer : the future of the internet is not a 2d shitty screen

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:35 a.m. Avaer : it's more like a contact lens that projects into your vision 24/7

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:35 a.m. Avaer : and screens don't exist

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:35 a.m. Avaer : that's the future ML is working towards

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:35 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah for now headset are not comfy to use for long period

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:35 a.m. Avaer : and to a lesser extent, myself

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:35 a.m. Avaer : yeah current tech sucks

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:35 a.m. Avaer : but it's obvious to me where it's headed

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:35 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : obv

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:36 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : im leaving a bit see you later

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:36 a.m. Avaer : later!

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:36 a.m. Avaer : basically once VR/AR/MR tech gets as good as iphone did for phones, we will have another revolution on our hands

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:37 a.m. Harkan : When do you think it'll be ready for prime time?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:37 a.m. Avaer : within 5 years

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:37 a.m. Avaer : but the people who are gonna own this space are already doing it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:38 a.m. Avaer : I'd say "3rd gen" is where the iphone moment hits

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:38 a.m. Avaer : something like an internet-connected contact lens

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:38 a.m. Avaer : and then everyone will throw away their iphones

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:38 a.m. Avaer : because they will be garbage in comparison

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:40 a.m. Harkan : Heh, the HTC Vive and that arrow game is the only VR headset I've got to play with. It was pretty fun

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:41 a.m. admin : why doesn't magic leap have atleast something out? it could help project a better image in the eyes of devs

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:41 a.m. Avaer : because they aren't just making hardware

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:41 a.m. Avaer : they're making a whole platform around it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:41 a.m. Avaer : the hardware is just a small part of that, and it doesn't do much by itself

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:42 a.m. admin : what was the product they put up for pre launch? is it the magic leap one?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:42 a.m. Avaer : what they want to do is make it so that the world is populated by useful AR content everywhere when you use their hardware

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:42 a.m. Avaer : and yes that is it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:44 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i want to open a crypto market but my main issue for now is being abble to recreate every proprietaries wallet do someone have any experience with that

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:44 a.m. Avaer : yeah

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:44 a.m. Avaer : plenty

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:45 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ok noice can we start a mail convo more official for that ?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:45 a.m. Avaer : I was gonna back my platform with bitcoin, XCP, eth, and my own custom crypto before I decided it wasn't a good fir

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:45 a.m. Avaer : fit*

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:45 a.m. Avaer : ummm sure, not sure how I can help tho

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:45 a.m. Avaer : a@modules.io

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:45 a.m. Avaer : but I've written tons of wallets in the past

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:45 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i mean are you just using the proprietary libraries to build wallets ?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:45 a.m. Avaer : no

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:45 a.m. admin : keep the convo here for now, anything involving personal details you can take it to email

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:46 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : so whats the difference between different wallets

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:46 a.m. admin : i'm interested in following the convo, could learn a thing or two

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:46 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ay

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:46 a.m. Avaer : the blockchains are all different

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:46 a.m. Avaer : some have common origins but they use different formats and protocols

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:46 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah but how to that change the creation of any wallet just a signature corresponding to the block

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:47 a.m. Avaer : creating a wallet doesn't involve any signature

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:47 a.m. Avaer : a wallet is not an actual "thing"

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:47 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : signature i mean techno corresponding to the matching blockchain

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:47 a.m. Avaer : yeah basically

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:47 a.m. Avaer : but each blockchain has a different idea of what a balance is

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:47 a.m. Avaer : and what an address is

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:47 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : a wallet its just an address that its gonna be righten on the blockchain and if you have it you have the coins

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:48 a.m. Avaer : a wallet is more like a method of tracking a blockchain, and signing things with your private key

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:48 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : nothing related but do you know tenx the crypto to visa compani

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:48 a.m. Avaer : but as I said all of the chains do it slightly differently

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:48 a.m. Avaer : sure I've heard the name

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:48 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ok which type of wallet did you already write

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:49 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : well ive been using it and its really great

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:49 a.m. Avaer : bitcoin, XCP, and custom crypto I deployed

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:49 a.m. Avaer : I was a pretty early adopter of bitcoin

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:49 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : and it makes me thing about so many feature who can interest a lot people because people can actually spend the money the classic way but also benefits from the volatility when its high

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:50 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : deployed with which blockchain

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:50 a.m. Avaer : I dunno, I think it's all a bubble

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:50 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i want to deploy my own with eth i think

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:50 a.m. Avaer : nobody is using this tech for anything except storing money

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:50 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ok and

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:51 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i think its totally the future of money

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:51 a.m. Avaer : I don't think so

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:52 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : blockchain is just the first techno who gived us this new vision

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:52 a.m. Avaer : I say that with like 10 years of experience in it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:52 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : dosnt matter for me

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:52 a.m. Avaer : what vision is that?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:52 a.m. Avaer : the original vision was decentralized payments

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:52 a.m. Avaer : free from regulation

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:52 a.m. Avaer : but it ultimately became the opposite of that

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:53 a.m. Avaer : it is highly centralized and regulated

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:53 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : why because everyone storing money and fast trading to makes profit

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:53 a.m. Avaer : and it will become more so

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:53 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i dont know why you think its a bubble who is going no where

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:53 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : centralized by the markets ?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:53 a.m. Avaer : centralized by miners and exchanges

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:54 a.m. Avaer : there are very few players that matter

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:54 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ok well i mean without them it dosnt really work

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:54 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ok like all the time

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:54 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : obv this had been appropriated and now there is rulers

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:54 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : but you can also use it to renew business

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:54 a.m. Avaer : yeah, and what it became now is completely the opposite of what it was supposed to be

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:55 a.m. Avaer : it's basically just another too big to fail bank now

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:55 a.m. Avaer : just a lot less tied to a nation state

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:55 a.m. Avaer : but it has all of the same problems in practice

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:55 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah its right

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:56 a.m. Avaer : so that's why I think this is kind of a dead end -- in practice it just extended the existing status quo, it didn't change anything

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:56 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : too big too fail when i think about crypto its kinda a positive market even if it goes up and down the prices keep pushin high because of the trend hype wtvr

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:56 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : also there is not that much smartest applications of the technos

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:56 a.m. Avaer : there are like no applications of the tech really -- except maybe ethereum

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:57 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : like i worked on this DAO to manage a company transparently and do everything that you can do in a real board and idk it just make it very clear

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:57 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah eth is game changer with smart contracts thats a very plus

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:57 a.m. Avaer : the thing is it's not a game changer at all :)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:57 a.m. Avaer : the thing about ethereum is its main application is supporting more crypto tokens, that's it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:57 a.m. Avaer : and those crypto tokens are just more stores of value, bitcoin mini

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:58 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : like sub eth

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:58 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : you mean

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:58 a.m. Avaer : yeah

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:58 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:58 a.m. Avaer : so eth really changed nothing, it just brought the ability for everyone to mint their own currencies

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:58 a.m. Avaer : and none of these currencies have any intrinsic value

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:58 a.m. Avaer : their main value by far is speculation and gambling

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:59 a.m. Avaer : the uses in other areas are almost zero

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:59 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : for me making you own crypto is the way to get capitalized by this new world

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:59 a.m. Avaer : that's true

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:59 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : well you have to do the links and share against worlwide accepted currencies

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:59 a.m. Avaer : nobody in this space is creating any actual value though

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10 a.m. Avaer : they're just another version of a bank

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10 a.m. Avaer : reshuffling money

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10 a.m. Avaer : and it will become increasingly regulated

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : there is so many business who are totally out of that and who have a really great potentiel because of their quality of production who could be backed up by this new type of income and make it go bigger

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10 a.m. Avaer : tyl: I agree in theory

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10 a.m. admin : what does the company blockstream do? lots of accusations flying around regarding controlling core

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah so annoying people wanting to make money with nothing valuable

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10 a.m. Avaer : in practice it has been tried and does not happen

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:01 a.m. Avaer : the tokens become valueable and then they just become tools of gambling and tax evasion

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:01 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah ik that its the edge

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:01 a.m. Avaer : so whatever people tried to do with the token gets forgotten

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:01 a.m. Avaer : and that's why I think this is a good idea in theory, but in practice, humans just get greedy

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:01 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i mean tokens are selled because of something

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:02 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : generally a product so what the product is never made and the token are just lost somewhere

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:02 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yeah greedyness its the whorse that why its 99 / 1 %

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:02 a.m. Avaer : I used to be interested in this

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:02 a.m. Avaer : but then I realized that this was just banking

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:03 a.m. Avaer : and if you actually wanted to accomplish something other than banking (like me) then you should probably stay away from cryptocurrencies

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:03 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : im poor for noand come from the poor background so thats why i maybe have all those positives thought about it but yeah i k when i go up into circles you realized thats its just this old animal battle for a piece of meat

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:03 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : and every tricks is acceptable

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:03 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ok well thats good convo tho

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:03 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ill stay an optimist because thats what drives me

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:04 a.m. Avaer : I'm also an optimist

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:04 a.m. Avaer : I wouldn't be on my fourth startup after three failures otherwise

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:04 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : haha failing it the fastest way

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:04 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : but most of people cant handle it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:15 a.m. Avaer : so it won't make much difference

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:15 a.m. Avaer : except maybe the stamp of approval

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:19 a.m. Avaer : but nothing sustainable

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:20 a.m. Avaer : I pivoted away when it was clear it wasn't going to be big enough to sustain a company

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:20 a.m. admin : Avaer : in your view what's needed to get to the yc interviews? level of traction? the application etc

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:21 a.m. Avaer : admin: the moist important part is to not need YC

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:21 a.m. Avaer : if you're successful regardless of YC, that's how you get into YC

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:21 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : controversy but makes sense

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:22 a.m. admin : Avaer : yep

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:24 a.m. Avaer : admin: so my main advice is just make something people want. and forget about YC

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:24 a.m. Avaer : if you do the former, then YC will follow if you want it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 10:24 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : what people whant rn

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 11:52 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : do you know any websites kinda closed on invitation where i can have convoes like here for example

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 11:53 a.m. tyl_mighty_slash : the hardest thing is to build the network but once its done i bet its really interesting

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 11:59 a.m. admin : sites back up

  • Jan. 2, 2018, noon admin : registration is disabled because of 4chan

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:01 p.m. admin : everything working fine for you guys?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:09 p.m. Avaer : working fine here, quick break from coding

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:09 p.m. admin : that 4chan thread was deleted

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:09 p.m. Avaer : good

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:09 p.m. admin : anyone got an archived copy?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:09 p.m. admin : https://boards.4chan.org/b/thread/755604951

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:10 p.m. Avaer : probably nothing to learn from it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:10 p.m. Avaer : don't worry

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:10 p.m. Avaer : heh, why I find this so interesting is I'm trying to build exactly this kind of thing, except for the next generation of HCI's

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:10 p.m. Avaer : a place to chill with cool people and do cool stuff

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:11 p.m. Avaer : and make a living doing it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:11 p.m. admin : what's HCI?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:11 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : human computer interaction

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:11 p.m. Avaer : human computer interface

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:11 p.m. Avaer : or taht

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:11 p.m. Avaer : yeah

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:11 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : wtvr

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:12 p.m. Avaer : it's not even a tech problem though

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:12 p.m. Avaer : the tech for all of this is here

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:12 p.m. Avaer : including doing it in virtual worlds

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:12 p.m. Avaer : it's a community building problem

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:13 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : you want to be really attractive and accessible by being open but you vulnerable

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:14 p.m. Avaer : lol tell me about it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:14 p.m. Avaer : when I get a flood I pay big dollars for the servers

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:14 p.m. Avaer : and it dies at about 8 people live

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:14 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : damn

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:14 p.m. admin : I didn't guess that 4chan would shit over my site, always thought it happened to "them"

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:14 p.m. admin : them turned out to be me today

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:14 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : how many people are on your servers

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:15 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : well for now were safe

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:15 p.m. admin : lesson learned : always have recaptcha :)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:15 p.m. Avaer : recaptcha probably won't help

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:15 p.m. admin : tyl : asking me?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:15 p.m. Avaer : right now none on my servers, it's locked down

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:15 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : nop avaer

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:15 p.m. admin : ok

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:15 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ok

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:16 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : were 3 here

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:16 p.m. Avaer : guess so

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:16 p.m. Avaer : but anyone can run their own server (it's all open source) and I have a one click deploy to cloud

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:16 p.m. Avaer : that last part is deadly because I have anon login as well

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:16 p.m. Avaer : so gotta lock it down to credit card

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:17 p.m. admin : wait for 4chan to find out

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:17 p.m. Avaer : not looking forward to it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:17 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : server for your vr xp ?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:17 p.m. admin : wait, so 4chan has moderation? that thread is no longer acceissble?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:17 p.m. Avaer : 4chan has mods

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:17 p.m. Avaer : but also threads expire fast

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:18 p.m. Avaer : especially on bastard bord

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:18 p.m. Avaer : board*

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:18 p.m. Avaer : tyl: yes, mp vr server in browser

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:18 p.m. admin : is that thread loaded in your browsers? I closed the tab on my browser

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:18 p.m. Avaer : https://boards.4chan.org/b/thread/755604951

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:18 p.m. admin : it shows 404 now

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:18 p.m. Avaer : I know

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:19 p.m. Avaer : that's how 4chan works

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:19 p.m. admin : arnold, have the tab open?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:19 p.m. admin : threads expire on 4chan?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:19 p.m. Avaer : yes

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:19 p.m. Avaer : very fast

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:19 p.m. Avaer : especially on /b/

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:19 p.m. admin : huh, didn't know that

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:19 p.m. Avaer : but they also mod for invasions

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:19 p.m. Avaer : like this one

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:20 p.m. Avaer : admin: what do you want from that thread?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:20 p.m. Avaer : I seriously doubt there's anything useful

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:21 p.m. admin : I closed the tab without reading. nevermind, probably not worth reading

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:21 p.m. admin : yeah

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:22 p.m. admin : and how did those guys create an account with the same username as tyl?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:23 p.m. Avaer : probably unicode

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:23 p.m. Avaer : nonprinting chars

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:23 p.m. admin : same usernames are not allowed by the software

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:23 p.m. Avaer : I believe you

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:23 p.m. Avaer : they probably made diff usernames that look the same when printed

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:23 p.m. admin : oh,

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:24 p.m. Avaer : you might want to learn about unicode special characters if this surprised you ;)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:25 p.m. admin : I've come across them briefly, there was a website impersonating apple.com using special chars. then all the browser vendors fixed the bug

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:25 p.m. admin : I assumed django would have done something about it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:26 p.m. Avaer : it might be an option to canonicalize

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:26 p.m. Avaer : I dunno, I never used django

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:26 p.m. Avaer : but I worked at microsoft on the SQL compiler

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:26 p.m. Avaer : so I had a taste of the craziness of this area of standards

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:29 p.m. Avaer : admin: I hate to say it but I really don't think there is any value in the chat room itself... or a chat room + forum... or any of that stuff

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:29 p.m. Avaer : you're competing with discord and slack and reddit and other billion dollar companies that do this way better (no offense)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:29 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : its just the conversation going inside but she can happen everywhere

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:29 p.m. Avaer : heh I can smell the french in you tyl :)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:30 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : lol

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:30 p.m. Avaer : feminine conversation

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:30 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : oh yeah

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:30 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:31 p.m. admin : ah man, don't say that.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:31 p.m. admin : let's see if i can get the community going

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:31 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : go for it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:31 p.m. Avaer : admin: lol that isn't how it works

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:31 p.m. Avaer : I'm trying to help here

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:32 p.m. admin : no plans of taking any billion dollar co head on right now. just want to get people to contribute here

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:32 p.m. Avaer : contribute what exactly?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:32 p.m. admin : like the convo you and tyl had, that brings people back to the site

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:32 p.m. Avaer : I know you're not trying to make money, but you need people to come here instead of discord

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:32 p.m. Avaer : so you are competing

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:33 p.m. Avaer : and that's not a fight you'll win

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:33 p.m. Avaer : when things like this take off it's because they focused on one very niche small thing

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:33 p.m. Avaer : and they were very unique about it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:33 p.m. Avaer : but on its own there is nothing unique about a chat room

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:33 p.m. admin : what would you suggest I focus on for this?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:34 p.m. Avaer : add some interesting feature that sets it apart from all other chat rooms

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:34 p.m. Avaer : I already suggested a few

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:34 p.m. Avaer : e.g. if there was a "project of the day" that is the only topic you're allowed to talk about

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:35 p.m. Avaer : then I would *totally* be here every day to see what it was

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:35 p.m. Avaer : and to chat about it

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:35 p.m. Avaer : and maybe help out

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:35 p.m. Avaer : we did this with our VR modules and it worked really well (it's what got is from zero to some revenue)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:35 p.m. Avaer : got us*

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:36 p.m. admin : ok, so maybe pin a project at the top of the chatroom and have a discussion about it in addition to the general conversation?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:37 p.m. Avaer : it's just an idea

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:37 p.m. Avaer : whatever you do, you should put effort into it though

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:37 p.m. Avaer : like if you do this project of the day idea it should be posted on socials and so on to attract that specific audience

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:38 p.m. Avaer : once the room becomes too big you can shard it out to multiple rooms

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:38 p.m. Avaer : this is what both Reddit and Product Hunt did

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:38 p.m. Avaer : both were extremely successful

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:38 p.m. Avaer : and they created massive interesting communities in their niches

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:39 p.m. admin : yeah definitely, this was a hacky first version. I literally started the server using nohup python manage.py runserver &

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:39 p.m. Avaer : ;)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:39 p.m. Avaer : congrats on launching in that case

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:39 p.m. Avaer : but yeah, that's how I would do it -- focus on some unique aspect of the interaction you want to happen

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:40 p.m. Avaer : so when I think "why should I come here instead of some other chat room (I have like 20 tabs of them)", then the answer will be clear

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:40 p.m. Avaer : "bored hackers" is an excellent title to work from

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:40 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : gimme soem links

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:41 p.m. Avaer : lol tyl what are you interested in?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:41 p.m. Avaer : probably not the same things as me

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:41 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : everything who can stimulate my ideas or just convers about tech world stuff uk

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:41 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : need inspirations

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:42 p.m. Avaer : for inspiration I generally don't go to chat

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:42 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : but i like the open acces i mean i could never had some infos that i had here in such a little time anywhere that i know

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:42 p.m. Avaer : yeah but interesting people in chat is pretty rare I've found

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:42 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i dont really pass hours reading post on websites like reddit i prefer to convers

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:43 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : ok well do you have something going on on thoses 20 tabs

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:43 p.m. Avaer : yeah but nothing "inspiring"

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:43 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : i mean i get it interesting people maybe dont have time like us to chill there

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:43 p.m. Avaer : I mostly keep them to keep tabs on community pulses that are important for my company

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:43 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : gotcha

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:43 p.m. Avaer : for inspiration I listen to audiobooks, or put on talks in the background

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:44 p.m. Avaer : I'm always listening to something while I code

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:46 p.m. Avaer : how old are you til?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:46 p.m. Avaer : If you don't mind me asking

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:46 p.m. Avaer : tyl*

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:47 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : 28 np

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:47 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : yea i do sometimes mostly music tho

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:48 p.m. Avaer : cool, I'm just a couple years older

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:48 p.m. Avaer : lots of music on my end too

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:48 p.m. Avaer : sometimes I do both

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:48 p.m. Avaer : music plus book

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 12:59 p.m. admin : A quick note to people new here : registration is closed for now because of 4chan trolls. Once I have basic anti-spam measures up, registration will be reopened.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1 p.m. admin : In the mean time, you can browse the chat history by scrolling up and clicking on the "Load previous messages" button

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:01 p.m. admin : Users who already have accounts can continue sending messages

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:08 p.m. admin : 1300 normal messages (not counting the thousands of spam messages from 4chan) were sent in the past 24 hours, not a bad start.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:10 p.m. Avaer : I'm not sure if that's the right thing to measure

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:12 p.m. Avaer : one thing YC teaches is to measure the right things, because you end up building what you measure

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:12 p.m. Avaer : would having tons of messages make bored hackers better/meet its goals?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:13 p.m. Avaer : just some food for thought :P

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:13 p.m. Avaer : 4chan is exploding with messages and it's the scum of the internet, haha

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:14 p.m. admin : haha, tell me about 4chan.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:15 p.m. admin : no. of messages was just a random stat. What do you think I should focus on?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:15 p.m. admin : no. of interesting convos? no. of active users?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:16 p.m. Avaer : well it's pretty early to measure but active (returning) users is probably a better indicator of a good discussion place

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:16 p.m. Avaer : you could also measure convos but that's much harder to do

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:20 p.m. admin : surprised to see 20 users total still on this chat room, looks like interesting convos are key

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:20 p.m. Avaer : people need something to talk about, that's why I suggested the topic thing

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:21 p.m. Avaer : and/or project

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:21 p.m. Avaer : "what are you working on" is a very popular HN thing

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:22 p.m. Avaer : I think there's room for some place (like bored hackers) to be the place for that

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:22 p.m. admin : Thinking about the implementation, should I have a pinned message at the top saying : Today's topic : what do you want to know about bitcoin or what are you working on?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:23 p.m. Avaer : I'd keep it to one thing, not two or more

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:23 p.m. admin : yeah one per day

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:23 p.m. Avaer : and you know how people do show hn's?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:24 p.m. Avaer : it could be like that, but for a specific project/topic for that day or whatever

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:24 p.m. Avaer : of course you'd need to choose good topics

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:24 p.m. Avaer : but if you did, I would come back for the discussion

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:25 p.m. Avaer : that's why HN is so awesome, the discussion is always great

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:25 p.m. Avaer : even thou gh the site has like zero features

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:25 p.m. Avaer : they are also brutal with moderation

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:26 p.m. admin : yeah. so let's say I decide on a topic : what do you want to learn about bitcoin, how do I get users to come here and start a conversation? Maybe personally invite users, find out what questions they have, create a list of questions and get some experts to spare a few minutes giving answers?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:27 p.m. Avaer : I like the experts idea

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:27 p.m. Avaer : it's a bit of a chicken/egg problem though

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:27 p.m. admin : the chicken and egg problem with starting a community

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:27 p.m. Avaer : hahah :)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:27 p.m. Avaer : we're on the same page

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:27 p.m. admin : yep

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:28 p.m. Avaer : also... I would actually avoid "controversial" topics

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:28 p.m. admin : so at the end of each day I can take what I learned and turn it into a blog post, so it's a way to repeatedly drive traffic to the site

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:28 p.m. Avaer : hmmm yeah that could definitely work

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:28 p.m. Avaer : I'd sign up for that

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:29 p.m. admin : I won't touch controversial topics with a 100 foot pole. god, realtime + controversial == total shitshow

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:29 p.m. Avaer : it's all about the quality of discussion though; that's a nightmare of a problem to solve

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:29 p.m. Avaer : and I don't just mean 4chan spammers

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:30 p.m. Avaer : but even things like "bitcoin" are loaded and often lead to pointless debate

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:30 p.m. Avaer : or tabs vs spaces

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:30 p.m. Avaer : HN actually kills such things off the front page because it's bad for the community

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:31 p.m. admin : so this is a great idea to start with : pick a good technical topic -> invite users -> find out all their questions/misconceptions -> talk to experts to answer questions -> turn into a discussion

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:31 p.m. Avaer : that sounds like hard work

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:31 p.m. admin : getting experts to hang out here is hard, but I could probably get them to answer questions over email

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:32 p.m. admin : I'll keep it small to start with, invite 10 new users every day max

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:32 p.m. Avaer : well the point of chat is that the experts are there in real time, that's a lot of the value

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:33 p.m. admin : that's hard to do, but the discussion between people interested in the topic could work

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:33 p.m. Avaer : yeah

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:33 p.m. Avaer : the "invite users" part can probably be more organic

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:33 p.m. admin : that's what hn is in some ways, lots of non-experts talking about interesting topics.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:34 p.m. Avaer : a lot of them are experts too

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:34 p.m. admin : so what suggestions do you have for topics?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:34 p.m. Avaer : literally world experts

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:34 p.m. Avaer : I dunno, I'm an extreme outlier and probably a terrible source of topics

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:35 p.m. admin : regarding hn, definitely, but more often than not experts don't participate. eg- bitcoin related discussions are filled with downright wrong info

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:35 p.m. nobody : Just joining back in this morning. I realized it would be nice to see what I missed overnight.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:36 p.m. Avaer : hi nobody

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:36 p.m. admin : nobody : you missed a spam attack from 4chan trolls, seriously

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:36 p.m. admin : I've disabled registration because of the trolls

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:36 p.m. Avaer : yeah the controversial topics, the experts care about debating, because they've already debated it 20 times already

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:36 p.m. Avaer : don't care about debating*

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:36 p.m. nobody : Good morning Avaer

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:37 p.m. admin : so suggest any topic, I'll see what I can do. preferably something of general interest, like debunking bitcoin myths

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:37 p.m. nobody : Ahh, that sucks about the trolls. I was actually thinking about that last night. Need a way to keep people real

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:38 p.m. Avaer : as for topics, I would much rather contribute as an "expert" in certain areas

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:39 p.m. Avaer : I've been hacking for over 20 years in all sorts of areas so I have scars and lessons to share in some things

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:39 p.m. Avaer : but I don't know what people are interested in learning more about

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:39 p.m. admin : Avaer : what topics are you an expert on?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:40 p.m. Avaer : compilers, graphics, cryptography, cryptocurrencies, operating systems, virtual machines, internet architecture, audio engineering, history of video games

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:40 p.m. Avaer : those are some things I've spent years on

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:41 p.m. admin : damn, so many users on the site, no way to contact them. People watching this chat, send me an email ploggingdev @ gmail

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:41 p.m. admin : I'll send you an invite by tomorrow

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:42 p.m. admin : Avaer : you're familiar with bitcoin to answer all the common questions people have?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:42 p.m. Avaer : technically speaking yes

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:43 p.m. Avaer : if people want to know "should I buy bitcoin" I'm not the person to ask :P

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:43 p.m. admin : like what's segwit? how lightning network works? why fees are so high? how much does the average transaction fee cost with and without segwit?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:44 p.m. Avaer : those are actually very loaded questions

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:44 p.m. Avaer : and the last two are highly political/speculative

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:45 p.m. admin : under what circustances will core raise the blockchain limit? some general questions about trading bitcoin and also bitcoin cash. what happened with xt, unlimited ,s2x and the ddos attacks

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:45 p.m. admin : not in the same post, but maybe in parts

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:45 p.m. Avaer : e.g. fees aren't high for any technical reason, but a social one -- driven by the chinese economy

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:46 p.m. Avaer : and asking wehn core will raise the block size is also mostly a political question that people argue incessantly over

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:46 p.m. admin : how much does a 250kb transaction cost with segwit and without by referencing transactions on the blockchain

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:47 p.m. Avaer : a transaction doesn't cost -- the network is just so clogged that in practice miners don't accept your transaction without a ridiculous fee

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:48 p.m. admin : I'm just asking the type of questions that frequently come up, if you can answer these questions, then I think I found the first expert to start the bored hackers experiment

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:48 p.m. Avaer : segwit is just an attempt at slightly reducing the clogging

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:48 p.m. Avaer : I can, but I really think these are bad questions

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:48 p.m. Avaer : I've fielded them before and I can smell the arguments brewing

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:49 p.m. Avaer : this is like a prime example of a topic HN will kill off the home page

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:49 p.m. admin : these questions keep coming in btc related discussions, so if you present all the different view points, that's good starting point

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:50 p.m. admin : btc discussions are rarely killed off, I'll talk to the mods to confirm

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:50 p.m. Avaer : it's not the BTC discussions that get killed

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:50 p.m. Avaer : it'

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:50 p.m. Avaer : it's just when they devolved into political arguments

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:51 p.m. Avaer : there's a controversial tripwire they have

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:51 p.m. admin : as long as there's new technical info and new insights, it should be fine. If you're down to be interviewed as an expert, I can send you the questions maybe tomorrow

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:51 p.m. admin : down?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:52 p.m. Avaer : is that the format though? some emailed questions?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:52 p.m. Avaer : why would people want to hear what I have to say when it can just be googled?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:54 p.m. admin : once I send you the questions it should make sense, but the short version is debunking common myths about understanding btc. I'm sure people will be interested.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:54 p.m. Avaer : alright sure, I can do that

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:55 p.m. Avaer : what I can't do is go into things like future predictions and investment advice

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:55 p.m. admin : to the users watching this chat, send me an email ploggingdev @ gmail I can create an account for you. One user already sent me an email.

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:55 p.m. admin : No questions about price prediction, should I invest, should I sell my house and car etc. more technical questions

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 1:56 p.m. Avaer : then sure sign me up

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 2 p.m. admin : done

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 2:04 p.m. admin : so this is the first topic, I'll probably post it to my personal blog at https://www.ploggingdev.com/ and once I build a blogging feature here, I'll post it here

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 2:04 p.m. admin : sounds good?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 2:07 p.m. admin : 17 people watching this chat : registration has been disabled because of 4chan trolls. If you want an invite to join this chat, send me an email ploggingdev @ gmail

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 2:10 p.m. admin : going offline for a while, you can browse the chat history (1500 messages) by scrolling to the top and clicking on "load previous messages"

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 2:37 p.m. admin : WhiskeyCrow requested an invite and joined the chatroom, you can too. if you want an invite send an email to ploggingdev @ gmail

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 2:39 p.m. WhiskeyCrow : Can confirm

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:51 p.m. nobody : admin: what kind of anti-spam measures are you planning to implement?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:52 p.m. admin : nobody : recaptcha required to signup, rate limited chat messages (each user can send maybe 10 messages per minute)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:53 p.m. admin : maybe integrate an anti-spam api like akismet

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:53 p.m. nobody : Sounds good. Perhaps some kind of email (or other) validation, although that might add more barriers than you want

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:54 p.m. nobody : I really like the idea of having an open chat, but that's probably not realistic these days. Maybe if it were 25 years ago. :-)

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:55 p.m. admin : maybe at a later point. right now I'll keep the chat invite only - that's the best ant-spam measure, and grow the community organically

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:56 p.m. admin : as long as users act in good faith, open chats can be wonderful. there were lots of fascinating discussions on this chatroom

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:56 p.m. admin : and I literally put up this site 24 hours ago

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:57 p.m. admin : did you get a chance to read the chat history?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:58 p.m. nobody : I scanned it when I sat down at work, but didn't get into the details

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:58 p.m. nobody : What I'm really looking for is something like what IRC was in the early days

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:59 p.m. admin : lots of fascinating discussions, if you have some time, take a look. were you there when the 4chan trolls were doing their thing?

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:59 p.m. admin : nobody : hopefully this can be what IRC was like in the early days

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 3:59 p.m. nobody : And by "early days", I mean ~1994

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4 p.m. nobody : I missed the 4chan trolls. I signed up right before midnight US/eastern time and then went to sleep

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:06 p.m. admin : one of the ideas I discussed with Avaer was to have dialy topic (eg - common myths about bitcoin) and invite people to ask their questions here in the chat. I'll consolidate the questions and send them over to Avaer, who will answer the questions. I'll publish the answers in the form of a blog post and people can continue discussing the content in the chat. It's a good way to repeatedly drive traffic to this chatroom

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:06 p.m. admin : invite users -> have them discuss a topic -> talk to expert about the topic -> publish a blog post -> drive traffic to the chatroom

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:07 p.m. admin : it's hard to sustain this chatroom if new users aren't joining and new discussions don't take place

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:07 p.m. admin : even now 14 people are on this chatroom, I suspect the interesting discussions are the reason

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 4:08 p.m. admin : Reminder : I disabled new user registration because of 4chan trolls. If you want an invite send an email to ploggingdev @ gmail

  • Jan. 2, 2018, 9:56 p.m. tyl_mighty_slash : what if this make this chat a 24 / 24 nodejs channel im building something buy started with koa it runs pretty smoothly but even if there is one person posting all day about his project it can be something
