looking forward to moving to meet.coop services ASAP . . Will need canvas integration and also looking for how to use GreenLight to set up rooms similarly to what WordPress offers . . . WordPress . . . is great for BBB integration
Such integrations are beyond our very short-term development vision, yes? I can think of a bunch of really helpful developments in the front end (Greenlight is not wonderful). But right now I accept that, as @wouter has said in another conversation, MVP is where we’re at, in order to get income flowing and repay a backlog of already committed labour contributions, and to secure future operations?
stay 200% focused on the absolutely minimum viable product
Significant progressive wisely-demanding users like @freescholar /Agaric, who we have strong bonds of principle with, need to be invited into a shared awareness of the tight circumstances we are operating in - just like any other small startup free software producer coop? Precarious is the name of the free software coop game, yes? We need good users as long-run strategic partners with shared vision, but in the shortest term can’t be meeting wishlists bcos we have no economic slack - free (libre) software , but sadly, not free (beer) labour ? This calls for a sensitive and open dialogue? This is the start of a long haul, financially bootstrapping?
Hi Micky - should we talk about this balancing act of livelihood and ambitions? Agaric is not unfamiliar with the story, I’m sure. MayFirst too. @jamie Workers of the free software/movement organisation world, unite?
