Hello everyone! Here with a platform update: A tiny pre-alpha version of BobaBoard was launched on 6/9, and the third newsletter, detailing the precious baby’s first encounter with a small test group of stranger. has been sent out! You can also read the update here: bobaboard.com/blog/development

(Someone called it “the funniest thing I’ve read all week”. Not making promises, but I believe it’s worth a click-through!)

Also, fediverse folks: I'd love to hear/read more about your experience in decentralized spaces. Now that community building is going to become more of a priority, and given that, as you can read in the update, I'd love to build this starting from smaller, separate ones (though with no federation yet), it's more important than ever for me to listen and learn! If you want to chat, please do feel free to reach out.

@bobaboard We haven't done it perfectly, that's for sure. Not sure how much we know what we're doing yet, imo. Maybe we know a little. We're sure not experts, tho.

I think a lot of it depends on the... texture? of the larger space you're trying to set up? The sense of how much there is a strongly defined LOCAL space,, versus how easy it is/many ways there are to communicate BETWEEN spaces, which develops a sense of GLOBAL/UNIVERSAL space.


@gaditb that's part of what I'm trying to understand the shape of. I don't know how that spaces looks yet, and I want to figure it out by listening to what has worked or not in other spaces.
