Great Conversation

To some degree I the discussion has gotten away from the point: have an active place to engage with HPR. Over the past month or so (since this conversation started) is we had 3-4 podcasts mention the Matrix room. I hadn't even heard it existed before that -- I don't read the footer, apparently. Given that the matrix channel has > 80 people in it already, let's put some more focus there and use it more! :)

Re: Great Conversation.

I am member of a couple of Matrix rooms, incl HPR. Matrix is a good place for talking. I think the direction is that a person first knows about HPR and then join HPR Matrix room. But my interpretation of the idea to use Discord is the opposite direction: Persons not knowing about HPR should learn and get interested in HPR thanks to learning about it on Discord. I have never, to my knowledge, used Discord. So I do not know how Discord works or if the idea makes sense, but this is my understanding of the Discord suggestion.

Re: Re: Great Conversation.

Having used Discord a fair bit, I don't know how well it would work as a discovery tool. Much like matrix you need to join or be invited to a Discord instance to have discussions there. It serves the same purpose as Matrix, IRC, and to some degree these comments. Discoverability will be easier with platforms like Mastadon, Twitter, Facebook (yuck) and maybe YouTube where people find things via algorithms and discovery features rather than having to know that something exists in the first place. That said, if we want to "market" the show, the best thing anyone can do is actually recommend it to someone. If everyone who hears Ken (or Dave) read this comment on the June Community News were to *really* recommend HPR to one other person, that would go a very long way to providing some new ears and new voices.
