Collective digest — 2023

By avatar J. Ryan Stinnett

2023 is drawing to a close, so it’s time for our annual round-up of collective activities for the past year!


Our new Discourse-based forum launched this year and has been quite successful so far! If you enjoy long form / forum-style communication, please check it out if you have not already.

Here are some of the topics we discussed:


We have also revamped our catalog process this year. Catalog entries are now sourced from editable wiki-style posts on the forum, which makes contribution simpler and more approachable.


Our Matrix room has continued to be quite active as well.

Here’s a summary of interesting conversation topics from our room this year:

Looking ahead

Our community has thus far been focused around the occasional trading of ideas, sharing articles and projects, etc. I think it could be interesting to organise our efforts a tad more directly while still allowing for many approaches to arise. To that end, I’ve been thinking about posing one or more “challenge problems” next year where anyone who is interested would submit their approach (perhaps with a deadline for motivation).

Does that sound interesting to you? Either way, please do let me know!

We welcome your feedback by email.
