I enjoy Logs - talkgroup, it gives me a place to publicly blog about my day, and doesn’t get in the way otherwise.
We have a practice of dating the title of a daily entry, and others will sometimes jump on and give their own daily update. That’s a neat idea, and I’m thinking of automating it a bit, so the daily topic is generated, and folks can respond to it. That would be one use of the the journal talkgroup.
There are also the personal talkgroups, such as maiki - talkgroup and Tuna - talkgroup. I think in my case, most if not all of the topics in the maiki talkgroup are journal entries. And I know there are some topics in the Tuna talkgroup that work in a log/journal talkgroup.
It raises the questions: what are we going to do about those v1 talkgroups? And what will we do with this talkgroup when it is finished?
Well, I believe it will involve humans going through the topics and exporting them for archiving.
I don’t know what archiving means, really, but since I’m accountable, I’m just gonna move them somewhere nice for others to find and read. Like a nice, easy to read journal-blog site.
I also hope to not archive any content that ought not be, and by that I mean content folks want to not be archived. The best way to accomplish that is for folks to export their content to other systems and then removing the content from talkgroup (hopefully with redirects and notices for where it now lives).
We’ll go with that tentative plan: I will build some kind of journal archive, with a publicly available fossil (oh, I’m already figuring out how this works!), and when v1.logs and v1.maiki are processed, any remaining content will be migrated to the archive. And then I will do something similar with the proposed journal talkgroup.
