So this evening, I went and I chatted with some cool dudes in the libre hardware
space. They were super approachable on the meet.jit.si. I had some weird
hardware errors, so I had to use the jitsi
SIP backend to chat with my
jmp account. Then I was also in the meeting with a muted
jitsi account. It was very odd.
But I learned that
Firefox doesn't properly support
WebRTC, so I had to use
ungoogled-chromium to connect to the channel. I also learned that the lynx
browser, which is a terminal based browser, is great for testing accessibility
issues with websites. And I got some homework: learn assembly!
Anyway, if you have software people that you would like to network with, email
them. I've emailed Drew Devault of
sway fame. I've chatted (via
xmpp) with Christopher
Lemmer Webber of
ActivityPub and Media
Goblin fame. These people are really approachable,
and you can learn a lot from them.
