[kwlug-disc] Trying out some additional material on past meeting pages...

I'm all in favour of having info appear in multiple places. But
unsolicited is right, it would be good to have these things update
themselves from the authoritative sources, such as an Atom/RSS feed. Of
course, Google, Twitter et.al. have discontinued publishing Atom/RSS
feeds, the better to coerce you into their ecosystems.

In addition to Paul's meeting notes and Chamunks' YouTube videos, I've
been live-Tweeting the last few meetings; see https://twitter.com/kwlug

There's also http://identi.ca/kwlug Sadly, since the switch to pump.io
software I find Identi.ca too difficult to use; f'rinstance, I can't
even find a named anchor on the Identi.ca KWLUG page to point people to
a particular thread in the conversation.

So, I've just set up http://sn.jonkman.ca/kwlug to provide a F/LOSS way
to socially medialize. Any OStatus enabled service can connect, so if
you have a Diaspora, Friendica or StatusNet account you can subscribe to
this KWLUG account.

I'll use that to create an accessible thread for tonight's meeting.
Seems I can edit stuff on kwlug.org, so I'll try to add it myself.

And if anyone else wants to join me in being the voice of KWLUG on
Twitter, Identi.ca or StatusNet, please let me know and I'll give you
the keys to the front door.

--Bob.
