AltME: Ren - Data Exchange Format

Messages

(+1 for AltME) I fail to see the benefit of public view if all discussing the topic are on AltMe, unless you really need to hold your handheld all day. What I see from the two Red Trelloooos I am not impressed.
About the hour and minutes and seconds, hh:mm vs mm:ss In this notation indeed the difference will not be determinable from data that is filled in the fields alone. But in practise there is an agreement about what is in the designated place and how the data must be interpreted. Else we have to come up with an alternative that will distinguish between 12:30 (hh:mm) and 12:30 (mm:ss).

So it's not designed for chat, which is an important collaborative element, ren-data.org is public and the system of record. Trello solves problems I don't have. However, point me to the best example on Trello for a use-case like this, and I'll re-evaluate. Red uses it, so I'm semi-familiar with the UI. Just need a good example to convince me it's worth the effort.
I should say ren-data.org is *my* current public site and *my* current system of record. Bolek has his stuff on Humanistic, and I don't mean to imply that I an Ren's owner.
It might be nice to have a per-type chat area, which we can do here as well. Heck, we could even set up a Ren world. ;-)

Arnold: "unless you really need to hold your handheld all day" -- or use a Mac.
And Trello on a tablet is a nice experience.
Gregg: I agree--chat is an important element. That's one reason I hesitate to suggest it. However, chat alone is a very poor way to collaboratively coalesce resources. Too much gets lost.
(and using AltMe again for this brief stint, I miss being able to edit posts, star posts, feeds and oneboxing)
Gregg
At some point I will move my resources to github. I think that's better than Trello.
Trello is about managing a project, right? That's not our problem.

Chris, I am on a Mac and I have also access to AltMe on a Windows PC and I have hardly any trouble with ALtME on the Mac, just have to help it scroll and refresh, sometimes I need to reopen the world because my comment is not coming through, but it is still there to add to the group
Chris
Yikes, I'd forgotten about losing messages when it silently disconnects.
Chris
Gregg: Trello is fairly open in how you use it. It could be managing a project, it could be managing the resources of a project, it could be channeling the discussion on aspects of the project. As I suggested, it could also be the project.
Gregg
OK. Show me the best project match on Trello for Ren.
Arnold
Chris, also why I have put some links for Objective-C and Cocoa bindings in the MacOSX group. For the binding has been done for 'competitor' small languages, so why not for Red or R3 and put them on the map too.
Chris
Gregg: I don't know of a project quite like Ren that uses Trello. Perhaps the closest project in recent times is CommonMark that uses a combination of GitHub and Discourse.
Arnold: Mac OS X--another private group that requires logging into AltMe to view.
Gregg
I'm familiar with CommonMark. The initial spec was solidified before Discourse, correct?

Altme losing messages is mostly a myth

Gregg, just a clarification, Humanistic on GitHub is organization with ten members including you, so feel free to update the stuff there.
Gregg
Thanks.
