@meow: Maybe, you want to create an island in a virtual reality.

crocket03:02:56

That way, you don't have to buy an island to live there

crocket03:02:04

Virtualization of human reduces cost of living.

crocket03:02:07

Become a ghost floating on computer networks.

meow03:02:21

we can chat about this on the #C03RZGPG3

seancorfield03:02:40

(remember that 4,800 people see all the messages here so another channel may be more suitable)

crocket03:02:03

Actually, I muted #C03RZGPG1 a long time ago.

meow03:02:18

that's the channel we are in right now

crocket03:02:45

I muted every channel so that I am notified of mentions only.

meow03:02:03

@seancorfield: help!

seancorfield03:02:50

As an admin, I'll ask that you take the conversation to an appropriate channel. This is an unpartable channel so we discourage discussions here.

crocket03:02:24

What is this channel for other than counting the number of people on the group?

seancorfield03:02:58

Think of it as the "lobby". Slack requires that everyone be joined to one or two channels so every Slack tends to get a large channel that is not practical for conversations.

amrit07:02:52

any one got ideas for building a clojure app for a newlearner coming from Ruby?

amrit07:02:29

maybe suggest porting some existing Ruby gem?

meow07:02:55

@amrit: If you could please, look at the last few messages in this channel explaining how the general channel is like the lobby of a building with all 4,842 of us in it listening, then look at the list of 215 channels for one better suited to your question and ask it there. The #C053AK3F9 channel would be a good place to start. And welcome to Clojure. simple_smile

amrit07:02:02

apologies @meow

meow07:02:17

@amrit: No need to apologize. It's an annoying limitation of Slack and we just remind people when we can. Again, welcome to Clojure.

crocket11:02:35

#C03RZGPG1 on http://functionalprogramming.slack.com is used for talking about programming in general and functional programming.

crocket11:02:53

It seems nobody found a good use for #C03RZGPG1 on clojurians.

mpenet12:02:31

#C03RZGPG1 and #C03S1KBA2 are a bit redundant, imho the latter shouldnt exist (since we can't get rid of general)

mpenet12:02:16

Or it should be jvmclojure if that s the intent

crocket14:02:12

Why do you think #C03S1KBA2 is redundant? It captures clojure topics well. I cannot think of a better name, yet.

mpenet15:02:23

general and clojure have more or less the same scope, and one of them is not deletable

mpenet15:02:47

but yeah, I agree about the naming

mpenet15:02:12

then again this is "clojurians" at the root, so it's not so bad

meow16:02:16

slack is good ux but poor conversation model vs Braid

meow16:02:44

#C0J20813K

mj_langford21:02:48

@meow: Several slacks iā€™m in moved #C03RZGPG1 to #admin-announcements and created a #chit-chat channel

meow21:02:00

I'm just the court jester. One of the admins would have to speak to that. šŸ•¹ (because there was no jester emoji)

arrdem21:02:54

pkobrien: I thought you were hitting the hay 40hrs late šŸ˜›

nkraft21:02:41

Clojurians only sleep every other day.

meow21:02:03

Totally OT but I stayed up for 66 hours and then slept for 7. Feeling good now.

meow21:02:49

#C03RZGPG3 to discuss further

seancorfield22:02:01

Re: naming of #C03RZGPG1 -- raised with the admin team for input. Totally agree that a more specific name would help. Also updating the Purpose and Current topic would help too I think. Expect changes "soon".

dave23:02:44

sounds good. can we rename it #shhhh ?
