One thing that would change if we moved to Zulip: everyone would see every comment in a channel. I think this would be a good thing, on balance.

is that b/c comments in threads are similar to the ones in Discord? No hidden nesting ?

There are facilities for seeing a single thread at a time, but they're stateless. It's quite nice, but hard to describe.

And here I am about to ask if anyone would be interested in a general FoC IRC channel
I spend most of my time lurking there anyway. The chat app silos are getting to me though

Yeah, I'm also increasingly done with centralized corporate app+server platforms.

Music to my ears! As always, I'll go wherever people want. IRC would be great. I also lately want a shared git repo for longform stuff that we can all access offline and build shared clients for, but that's probably too pie in the sky yet.
How's this for an idea. Let's say six of us commit to an irc advance party. Monitor the channel multiple times a day, post interesting stuff, etc. I can commit to log an archive of the channel and send weekly updates to @Mariano Guerra. Do this for a few months, see if we're able to get more people to make the move.

@Kartik Agaram Sounds fine to me. I can set a channel up on Libera. #futureofcoding, perhaps?
Do you see this as a migration though, or a supplemental community? I'm thinking the latter. IRC is a hard transition for some folks

Oh for sure. I mostly think of these things as planting seeds and seeing what happens. Definitely doesn't have to be either-or.
☝🏼 For everyone's attention, this is now happening. Join us on IRC at #futureofcoding on irc.libera.chat. Grab a client from https://libera.chat/guides/clients

If you want to drop in and say hi, I think https://libera.chat/ has a web client that'll get you going

If anyone is interested we were considering adding Zulip like threading model on to Linen https://linen.futureofcoding.org/c/thinking-together your content is already in Linen

That definitely sounds interesting. Is it currently possible to post/comment on Linen? I see now that https://www.linen.dev says "two way integration" but there doesn't seem any way to interact with our posts. Is that something we need to turn on?

We can turn it on for you give me a second

To answer your original question: I'd certainly use the heck out of a Zulip like interface. It's too easy right now to miss conversations just because I didn't respond to a thread when it was originally posted.
