@mrjn shared this article https://m.signalvnoise.com/is-group-chat-making-you-sweat-744659addf7d#.4fdxuvhro which is very interesting.
####1. To keep all discussion regarding DGraph public unless it explicitly needs to be private.
Gitter for general discussions(where users can come and ask some real-time questions) and some Public topics in Discourse should work well to achieve this.
2. For private conversations.
- Regarding what we are working on
- How we are thinking on going ahead with what we aim to accomplish.
Do we need slack/hipchat ? I don’t think we need it for now. I will be talking to minio guys today and see what they use. Will also do some reading on it. But after reading experiences of BaseCamp I feel , having private topics in Discourse would be a better idea for structured discussions. I guess real-time chat with people being in different timezones does have a lot of negatives. What do you guys think about this ?
