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
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.
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.
@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.
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.
