Meta Update (No, not facebook)


First, let me say a big thank you for joining during our closed beta. We are now approaching 30 users, and we are already sharing resources, and stories, and making connections with people that we didn’t know who are working in this fascinating space. I’m encouraged that means this community can achieve its goals.

If you haven’t already, please introduce yourself in the Introduce Yourself! topic in the Getting Started category!

@jameson and I are working on getting some of the “paperwork” finished like the terms of service and the privacy policy.

We both recently started new jobs, and are quite busy. If you are interested in helping in that work, please let us know by whatever means you like. Any and all assistance would be deeply appreciated.

Once the paperwork is done, the plan is to move to an open configuration, in which reading is available to anyone with the link, participating requires an account, and getting an account does not require approval from the admins.

We will probably call that an “open beta” for a while, just to confirm that everything works as expected for a few weeks, and then remove the “open beta” notice permanently if everything is kosher.

If you have any thoughts, comments, criticisms, suggestions, we want to hear them. Please start a topic in the Site Feedback category and let us know!
