I'd like to keep track of people and groups that may be interested to participate or collaborate, and who we may approach before (or after) our project announcement (see #4).

We can elicit their help to broaden the 'announcement campaign'. Checking these boxes after we had a good back-and-forth and explaining of plans:

  • The Bonfire team via their Matrix chatroom. We might have a vidcall with them before announcing.

    • Ivan Minutillo, architect/UX of Bonfire team joined our chatroom with: "really fits with some of the ideas that shaped bonfire till now, happy to coordinate efforts towards common goals"
  • Loïc Dachary, @dachary of Forgefriends community obviously, as this project closely aligns with Social Coding.

  • Sean Tilley, @deadsuperhero working on postmodern/ap_typerender#1 which focuses on UI building blocks for federated apps.

  • @PaulaToThePeople who runs Fediverse Town in collab with SocialHub.

  • The Open Hospitality Network @mariha and Karrot Nick Sellen, for our shared needs for community management.

    • Brief announcement in the OHN Matrix channel, and highlighting a possible direct overlap wrt the Community parts in relation to federation.
  • David Sterry, @weex to maybe align with Magic Stone methodology, based on ZeroMQ's C4 'Collective Code Construction Contract'. See C4-tools.

    • Informed David via Matrix DM. He's interested and reading background information.

    • David joined our chatroom with: "Looking forward to see how I can help and what new ideas might come from Social Coding!"

  • @houkimenator, organizer of Fedijams and planning an itch.io-like fedi platform. See Federated Game Store in Fediverse Futures on Lemmy.

    • Informed via fedi DM. No response thus far, other than a Like.
  • Laura Michaels showing interest in Social Coding in this Fediverse Foundation topic

  • Mayel posted in Bonfire chat about LearnDeep university students group in Milwaukee USA, hacking on Bonfire. We can approach this group to see if the Social Coding vision appeals to them.

  • Weblite initiative on Codeberg, creating lightweight CSS, HTML, XML specifications.

  • Dave Lane, tireless FOSS advocate and advocate / pracititioner of OER.

    • Sent a DM to Dave on 24 December with a link to the draft site.
  • Kristian in relation to this fedi discussion on the topic.

    • Sent a DM informing about the Social Coding initiative.
  • @lightone of Fediverse Party fame. Especially since ActivityPub watchlists may become Delightful lists and Delightful be brought under Social Coding umbrella.

    • Sent a DM on Christmas Day. Can help in announcing, spreading the word, maybe coding later.

    • "I wonder if your initiative has a space for initiatives like "Winter of Coding" (proposed by Framasoft against Google Summer of Code / Hacktoberfest - but never realized). I'd be super excited to take part in organizing smth like that for Fedi projects"

  • @yarmo of Keyoxide and Delightful Club now that we consider moving Delightful under Social Coding umbrella.

  • Esther Payne of Librecast and FOSS / fedi advocate herself.

    • Approached via fedi DM. Interested by really busy right now. Willing to help with advocacy.
  • Alja Isakovic of ResponsibleTech.Work involved in responsible product development.

    • Informed via Matrix and invited / most welcome to see how we might collaborate.
  • Nick Sellen of Karrot, a community platform, and having unique insights in community organization.

Add more people freely as we move along..

Though right now we have the Discuss Social Coding co-shared community forum and I have name-dropped Social Coding to many people without listing in this issue, I'll continue to add some notable places of PR here.
