OpenThink forum discussion


#1

This is the thread for the OpenThink forum prototype I demonstrated at today’s Open Space meeting

OpenThink is a flexible forum structure that allows discussions to go infinitely deep without cluttering the discussion space. We’d love to have a space where people can participate in all the important discussions they care about, and where these discussions can go as deep as desired and be enriched by in-person meetings but not be limited to them.

Here’s a quick demo video- https://youtu.be/iXWXvI8mhRg
[git repository in video description]

Here’s the IP of the site if you wanna play around with it- http://104.131.192.87/

Would love to hear any feedback you have-- please post questions/comments in this thread :slight_smile:

Thanks! Good job on the video.

See also http://wikum.csail.mit.edu/ that @robert_best mentioned in the chat. Just had a look and seems like a nice start for a collaborative summary tool…

Thank you!
We were originally thinking that people submitting large posts could just add a tl;dr summary in their own words, though wikum definitely seems a lot more robust and collaborative
