I am posting a follow-up to the message below, for two reasons:

1. I wanted to share info about how to participate, for those that are interested (see below)

2. Even for those who are not interested, the CCG crowd may find it interesting to observe an organizational behavior experiment we are trying.

We were not able to find a time when a quorum of interested users could all come. All too busy… Therefore, we are trying something new and different. We call it an “UnSync”; see https://hackmd.io/@dhh1128/Sk5_Gb2J9. Those who’ve lived through the delta between a traditional conference and an RWOT or IIW “Unconference” know that meeting differently can be really awesome, if done right. We hope this idea yields similar benefits. We want people to put a meeting on their calendar, but show up to a Discord channel at any time convenient for them during a 12-hour block of time, once every two weeks. This gives the greater flexibility/convenience of async interactions, and also makes full hour meeting blocks unnecessary (we expect most can process the part of the meeting where they want to contribute in 15 min). However, it also avoids the pure async problem of enabling infinite procrastination, ensures a regular rhythm, and provides for an orderly processing of business. We’ll see how it goes.

Time of meeting: every 2 weeks on Wednesday, for 12 hours, beginning at 1100 UTC. That’s 2000 Tokyo / 1700 Delhi / 1200 Central Europe / 0600 Eastern / 0400 Pacific. If you make yourself an appointment, start it on 23 Feb 2022 to get the on/off weeks right.

The meeting is held on our Discord channel: https://discord.gg/eNN4Wns6Jb


Subject: announcement: DIDComm user group

Call to Participate - DIDComm User Group

Now that the DIDComm v2 spec<https://identity.foundation/didcomm-messaging/spec/> is nearing completion, and there are robust libraries in multiple programming languages<https://github.com/decentralized-identity/didcomm-messaging#implementations>, we are starting a user group to share learnings as we put DIDComm into production. We will organize community resources, produce a handbook, foster application-level protocol creation, maintain the didcomm.org website<https://didcomm.org> and repo<https://github.com/decentralized-identity/didcomm.org>, and recommend best practices.
