We've just published a new blog post "Why are we building yet another (federated) todo list app?"

Happy to unveil the Bonfire iconography, along with an updated website: bonfirenetworks.org

We have decided to retire as a project name and to focus in on @bonfire instead. Please follow us there or visit bonfire.cafe to learn more

@Argus They're also one of the few spaces we can still socialise in this age of social distancing (at least during the cold months). Let's light more bonfires!

@Argus bonfires often start among a small group of friends and then may attract neighbours and others who want hang out for a while. Also burning stuff is fun!

@bonfire I love the name "Bonfire" - makes me think of Dark Souls, and the security bonfires provide. What was the source of the name?

Q&A FRI, 14:30 UTC

Just launched a first draft of our website with a little info about what we're cooking: bonfire.cafe

TL;DR: Bonfire will be:

1. a pre-configured device
2. a fediverse identity hosted service (which syncs between the fediverse and the device whenever it comes online)
3. apps (web apps but they run on the device instead of the cloud)


INDIEWEB.SOCIAL is an instance focused on the #Openeb, #Indieweb, #Fediverse, #Mastodon #Selfsovereign #identity (#SSI), #Humanetech and #Calm technologies evolution.
