Ergo, proxy

Continuing the discussion from steps i took to spin up a new discourse instance at on digitalocean:

I don’t have time to become an expert on everything. There are so many fun things to be an expert on, I focus on those. But ya’ll think different things are fun, and thus our system support cognitively diversity…

Okay, so I want to list out things, like skill share things, but also maybe places we are listening. I “listen” to a lot of communities, for my own purposes, but if I know someone is into something, I route that info to them.

Let’s use this discussion to list out things we are watching and mentoring on, and see if there is a pattern where we can structure it; at the very least we’ll have an updated sense of what folks are into right now. :slight_smile:
