MM Campfire — Oct 29, 2020

Campfire, marshmallows and conversation! The MM team gets together regularly in a sort of free-form discussion that’s not quite a chat, and not quite a discussion. It’s a cross between instant chat and performance art.

Buna dimineata!

c: We still cool with doing these Campfires? …at this time/day-of-the-week?

c: Any thoughts on inviting other people to this? …like maybe Patreon supporters?

Mel: I think that would be fun! It would be nice to meet them

c: Well, that’s a thing then! I’ll make it a “benefit” for the Patrons and I’ll do a post so they know exactly when/where to go.

Ruby: yay!

Changes in the forum

c: Any thoughts on the new embedded players in the topics?? :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: (discussion in the zoom call was effusive) …ok then. :stuck_out_tongue:

TOTALLY random

c: we’re off looking at We started talking about “old” communities—online communities which have been going for 10, 20 or more years. We were discussing how much we like Discourse… and I had to show some … uh, ancient, zombie?, … communities I know of.

Next episodes

c: So episode 85 is off to the presses— Just Sole and Queen Di !

c: Is everyone ok with turning the video-conversations we did (there ~ a dozen of them) into podcast episodes too? …and what shall be episode 86?? I think 86 should be one that has video, for sure one with video.

Mel: Yes, I think so! It lets more people hear those interviews, which had some really fun and useful things in them.

Ruby: I like that idea, i think we can pull a lot of cool content from the stuff we have in the video interviews.

c: (video conversation happens) ok, let’s run with Jessi’s as episode 86. German will kill me when I send him that audio… but it’ll be fun.

c: who’s episode 87?? :slight_smile: …maybe table that discussion for another day? Didn’t mean to turn this into a status meeting :stuck_out_tongue: (Angie got mentioned though…)

Cool instagrams for the week

Mel: I loved Paula Flinn’s video of training with her son Jack, and making lines together


Mel: Looks amaaaaazing

R: Here’s a really cool little line from Hannah Kim. She’s a mom of three, and I always like seeing her content!

c: speaking of people we’ve talked with (we were speaking in zoom but y’all readers can’t tell) Here’s another person doing cool (one might even say “chill”) stuff too:
