Related tangent – I've wondered if there should be a much wider notion of "two-minute-week" – for instance, I'm not ready to post videos and show+tell – but would I post a little microblog update? No, because I'll just end up talking in a private sort of language that no one understands. But should I do that anyway?
Think about the original twitter status update, how it was a still-undefined format. Lunch and what's on tv and headed out and reading X, all became the first announcements. There weren't pictures of peoples' lunches back then!I've often felt this same thing. #share-your-work and #two-minute-week feel like very structured places. #thinking-together and #linking-together have their own purposes. I've often wanted a place where I can share what I'm up to or thinking about without feeling the need to meet some bar. Now maybe its best that we don't do that. Maybe it is just noise. But since someone else mentioned it, I wanted to post about it. I was thinking something along the lines of #devlog-together. Only structure I might suggest is that people should post at most 1 top-level post per day. I know something like this would encourage me to share more. Would I share every day, probably not. But it would be a place I could share things that I don't feel meet the bar of those other channels. Thoughts? Good idea? Or just noise?

Please, no links to startups or companies, unless the link points to something deeply technical, philosophical, or otherwise interesting for us to talk about.New:
Don't use this channel to talk about a startup or company. We want to learn about you as a person. If all your Future of Coding-relevant work happens to be taking place within a startup, talk about the nature of the work, not just the name and nature of the startup. Rather than linking to the startup homepage, link to a blog post or technical document that describes something interesting about what you're working on.
Our community moderators are very sensitive to posts in this channel that feel even slightly like spam. The mods may delete your post and message you about it. They'll encourage you to post again, and help you rewrite your introduction to be more appropriate for our audience.Feedback welcome.

Unsolicited requests to add Slack Apps will be ignored. If you'd like to install an app, please start a discussion about it in #administrivia or DM @Ivan Reese. Describe in detail how the app will benefit the community at large, and how it aligns with the goals and vibe of the community. A request from an active member for an app that addresses a longtime pain felt by many is more likely to be approved. A request from a new member or an app that addresses a personal inconvenience is not.Thoughts and feedback welcome.

When you want to respond to someone’s post, always use threaded replies.I've always interpreted this as discouraging including replies in the top-level channel. But I miss out on a lot of discussions that happen after a post goes "above the fold". If I didn't comment on it early on I miss the chance to follow the conversation. So I'd like to propose we explicitly encourage people to bump comments to the channel. Particularly if say the top-level of the channel hasn't had activity in a day or so. And if the commenter is different from the original poster. I'm just thinking aloud, so feel free to suggest other rules. I guess this has never been explicitly forbidden. So maybe I'm not proposing changing a rule so much as clarifying a grey area. I'd particularly appreciate hearing if this seems like a bad idea. cc @Kam Leung who might be interested in this thread.
