This is a bonfire instance for testing purposes. Federation is disabled for this instance.

The articles under "News" on the web site really should have dates. Right now one can't tell by just opening them if they were written 5 minutes ago, yesterday or 2 years ago.

I've just found Bonfire, but I think a lot of the ideas are really great!

I'm getting on here to see how it feels.

I'm currently evaluating existing solutions to see if I need to try to make my own or not. I've got pretty specific ideas for what I want, but Bonfire looks like it's really designed for customization, so it might work.

First post!


The idea is to eventually use bonfire at my class in an art academy.
So, today I will start asking students what they may want or need in a community. Curious!


In the meantime I will simply use this as a playground, and try out stuff.
Hmmm.. just attached an image to this post, and it seems I cannot remove it. Well, there it is then 😊 It's a Nanolandscape by ©Michael Oliveri. I'll try to figure out if I did something wrong, or if I should collect this as an issue.

SOFTWARE PRESERVATION AFTER THE INTERNET
Dragan Espenschied, Klaus Rechert
conference-paper
September 23, 2023
Software preservation must consider knowledge management as a key challenge. We suggest a concep-tualization of software preservation approaches that are available at different stages of the software lifecycle and can support memory institutions to assess the current state of software items in their collection, the capabilities of their infrastructure, and completeness and applicability of knowledge that is required to successfully steward the collec-tion.

hi @edumerco 😊 the logic to configure the left sidebar is already in place, and we use it for customize the sidebar based on which extension are enabled (now it's not that obvious because this instance has not many extensions enabled, but you can see that recently it was added a "publication" link at the bottom of the sidebar, because we enabled the open_science extension ) .

We do not offer yet the possibility for users to customize it - mostly because once we will add Groups and Topics, the left sidebar will likely be rethinked a bit to properly include those as well...

Not much happening in my feed lately....has the action moved elsewhere and I missed the cue?

Or is there another view here that would show more messages etc?

I was thinking of inviting some other people to check out Bonfire and the cafe seemed like the logical place, but then I don't post much here these days either....

@bhaugen yeah I guess it's just more quiet lately, as @ivan and I are focused on preparing the 1.0 release (mostly testing and improving federation functionality) so there's less new features or iterations to experiment with...
