The [[Agora]] is a platform geared towards [[problem solving]].

This is the currently best known (to the community) idea of how to solve [[poverty]]: implement a [[distributed basic income]]

In the Agora we can maintain together a crowdsourced set of [[problems]], alongside with [[patterns]] potentially leading to [[solutions]].

An Agora is in itself a composition of a set of [[patterns]].

For example: [[repository]], [[distributed]], [[commons]].

...and all other patterns you could be interested in [[modeling]] with a well-meaning community.

@flancian Oh huh, neat! I had my own project called Agora, a ways back. XD

@Angle oh, very interesting! what was it about? where did it lead? if you want to share.

@flancian It was an open source federated site, basically like mastodon, except it displayed posts in a tree view. You can see the source here:
It was never really finished, and will probably need to be updated besides. I'll add some old screenshots of it as well. These ones are really outdated, but I think they show the basic idea. XD

@flancian Eh, it was interesting. Needed a lot of work, more than I could devote to the project. XD

@Angle would you be interested in cooperating/collaborating/joining [[flancia collective]] with no strings attached?

@flancian Hello? I am interested, I just want to know what I'm getting into. XD

@Angle apologies for the delay! I had to context switch and this thread ended on my todo list. Thank you for reactivating!

@Angle the collective is a group of people with aligned values working in public; sometimes towards a shared goal, but often independently.

@Angle I meant to send this link to you in the previous message, but the bot failed :) my code is buggy.

@flancian Interesting! Okay, I'll give it a try. Anything in particular I should look into contributing too? And, if someone were interested in helping me with my current project, Omnicraft, that would be cool. I could use some expertise with code optimization and testing, in particular.

@Angle nice, I'm terrible with graphics/physics (coding in general?) but I'll give it a try and pass it around!

@flancian Graphics and physics aren't actually the big thing I need to optimize right now - that's data management and networking, I think. Graphics could probably use some work, but I don;t think they're that big a deal right now, and I've only implemented the absolute barest and most minimal physics at the moment. :/

@flancian What about other projects I could contribute to? Is there anything you'd point out?

@Angle thank you for asking!

[[go/agora]] is the main repository. ([[agora bot]] should respond to wikilinks with links to known sources.)

@Angle did you get a notification? I wonder -- if you don't mind sharing. I've just implemented this and it behaves differently on Twitter and on Mastodon, so it's hard to keep track of user experience sometimes :)

@flancian Nope, no notificiations that weren't directly from you.

@Angle were you able to see the links anyway in your default writing experience as you were interacting with my messages?

@flancian Also, this page seems to have an issue? Not sure what's going on, but it say's it's empty for me:

@Angle thank you! There are sometimes issues with different link conventions, will look into this tomorrow.
