Florence / Fediverse Discussions / MastoDev 

Heya, me and @lightdark are lifting up #Florence again, moving the chat to something better and more accessible (matrix, with our own server).

We're back to where we were 2 years ago, with a lot of frustration #onhere that nothing happens with Mastodon to care about the needs of a lot of people.

We want to help alleviate that, if for nothing else to facilitate conversations. If you want to join those convos keep an eye on me and @forktogether

Next meeting will be held on Sunday the 9th of February, 9pm UTC
(further timezones here: time.is/2100_9_Feb_2020_in_UTC )

If you've wanted to participate and help out with now is a great time to join in if you're able! As we're kicking off the new year with some new energy!

I posted from @forktogether before, but we're about to host a new meeting with/about #Florence, and one of the things I'm about to do is ask for more help. So, if you'd like to see Florence succeed, and have a little bit of spare time on your hands, you're very welcome to join this next meeting.

We're checking suitable times with Doodle:

As I've been asked what the link is between @glimpse and @forktogether a few times now:

* We share some of their contributors
* Glimpse's fediverse presence runs on a Florence Mastodon instance
* Florence project provided us with advice as we scaled, and we sometimes discuss sharing tools/resources

Currently that's it! Glimpse project is run by different people with our own governance system, code of conduct & tooling. 🙂

We also use Matrix for project communications, they use Mattermost. 👍

The main focus for #Florence work today will be Vision/Mission, something that's been on the backburner for way too long.

Wanna pitch in? Let me known, or hop on our mattermost/chat.

Here's a current update about what's going on with Florence:

tl;dr: Some delays due to illnesses, exhaustion and other things.

Ball is starting to roll again.

Florence preparing for Crowdfunding 

#Florence will soon™ launch their crowdfunding campaign.

For this we're looking for donation matching. It can be small (like $100), and it can be bigger (like $5000). Or anyhting in between.

You can be a private person, publicly or anonymously, you can be a company that wants to help support the kind of space we want to create.

If you want to help out with this feel free to DM me, preferably with an email that I can contact you on later!

:boost_ok: 💞

Next meeting we haven't set a time or date for yet.

We'd like to be able to include people in a different timezone, who've not felt they can attend our meetings currently (as they've been at 1600 UTC on Sunday's).

Have you considered attending meetings but the time doesn't work for you? Let me know, and I'll try to plan something that fits a few new people!

At this weeks meeting we decided to reduce the workload of a few members, while some others put on extra work to finalize some things.
