Re: %hjaxoweXU

cool !
Do you show people the shmorgesboard of clients?
I think I want to maintain running versions of them all so people can grok the diversity

@ev
Re: %hjaxoweXU

@mixmix I demoed %minbase, scuttlebot (on the command line), and %git-ssb-web today.

People were rocking %patchwork to %patchfoo at Sudoroom on Thursday!

I'm telling everyone that there are a number of clients built on ssb so far. %minbase is the one I'm most confident with, because it's the one I use daily and maintain.

@arj
Re: %hjaxoweXU

What kind of people do you show it to?

Re: %hjaxoweXU

altruistic street hawking :heart:

@ev
Re: %hjaxoweXU

@arj Interested people!

Earlier this afternoon I demoed %minbase, %patchfoo and showed a screenshot of %patchwork to some programmers at Sudoroom who weren't on ssb yet. We didn't quite get to the on-board process, but I think they are interested in trying it out soon.

@arj
Re: %hjaxoweXU

Cool. Explaining and showing things to other people really helps put things into a new light.

Please post the feedback you receive here, will be interesting to hear what people think.

Re: %hjaxoweXU

@arj some feedback from today: the person on the receiving end of seeing how it looks in here expressed that he has zero interest in social networking, never had a mainstream social networking account of any kind and wanted to be sure that didn't come across as harsh. It didn't. I appreciated his honesty and willingness to be direct. He said he doesn't own a mobile device because he doesn't want the immediate-response-required/expected of owning a mobile device (at which point I talked about the 'eventually as opposed to immediate' element of what we're doing with sbot). He said he does have a landline to talk with his family.

Re: %hjaxoweXU

@gb i wonder if that type of person is the best to try a cutting edge concept such as Sbot

Re: %hjaxoweXU

heh, one of the lessons I learnt in my (thankfully brief) time as a door-to-door salesman was that you ain't gonna sell to everyone. Theirfore a quick "no" actually saves you time. Don't try to persuade everyone, just look for the people you can persuade. Oh, and be happy. If you are happy people will buy anything.

@ZjvbaK/vF…
Re: %hjaxoweXU

@dominic, @gb when approaching others with new ideas, I like to think of it as sorting not selling.

As you said, a quick no let’s you move on to the next person.
