So far, I am not impressed. I want to be really excited, but I currently don't see how Talk is better than say, #Discourse. Even at the level of hosting.
But I need to take it for a test ride to really respond.
Building static sites means having to know all about Disqus and alternatives, and I am convinced Discourse is by far the winner, if not a little resource heavy (but I mean, it starts at $10 a month for a VPS, but certainly easier than Talk as is).
But I need to show how it works, otherwise these publishers aren't gonna listen. ^_^
@satchmoz BTW, I started commenting on recaps of #WordCamp for Publishers at https://interi.org/notes/wordcamp-for-publishers-2017-recap/
I will be waiting to watch the video sessions before fleshing it out, but I wanted to mark down my impressions of the tech discussed. I work in publishing, both book and journalism, so it is my wheelhouse.
Commenting is a constant subject in these industries, but almost always from the creepy, eyeballs-are-money way. Not for actual engagement.
@maiki Specific solutions/right tool asside. I think also the article has more value as, maybe FLOSS has a role to play in making internet comments less of a shit storm?
That and emphasizing the themes of what make FLOSS solutions great in this space. Decentralization, ownership of data, etc, etc.
