Holochain Forum

How about the idea of HolochainHubs?

I would like to share an idea and ask the community if that is desirable:

I asked myself how I could promote a Holochain community in Germany?

At the moment, I find many individual communities hosting Holochain Meetups. But what if we unite and at least form a hub network on the Internet?
I’d like to set up the website holochainhub.org - if I’m allowed to - and with a few others from the community. HolochainHub would be an information and learning platform. We start as a network of independent hubs in different countries/communities. I would like to start with a Holochain Impact Hub in Frankfurt and hope that other Holochain communities in different local hubs around the world will join a hub network that shares resources and knowledge, but everyone can remain independent.

The vision is to inform all stakeholders in their own community/country about Holochain, Holo and its ecosystem, explain the technology, present use cases, organize events and organize working groups on interdisciplinary topics. We could maintain the site on Gihtub together and each community could have its own regional hub page.

What do you think? Would that make sense to you?

Count me in as well. I’m organizing events in Switzerland and have been attending the hAppathons in europe this autumn to learn more about Holochain development and connect with the people.

My personal vision is to connect local communities and work more closely together, with my focus being in Europe. We are already growing a network of organizers and helping each other to organize events, a DevCamp and a pool of skilled people to support projects.

Sounds like a good idea.

Hey, thank you so much for your positive feedback! That’s great that you support it. Then let’s think together about how we can put this into practice.

I don’t know yet what the Holochain core team thinks about this idea and what I’m allowed to do and what I’m not allowed to do and how it is with the copyright etc…

But I want to be as transparent as possible and document everything here in the forum. And if something is not desired or I should change something, then one can come very gladly to me!

I have tinkered something with my website…but this is only an idea/a first draft. Everybody can build his own website as he likes. I think the only important thing is that we “network” at the end by drawing attention to the other hubs and exchanging ideas.

My idea for Holochain Hub Frankfurt is:

  1. explain Holochain, Holo and Mutual Credit Cryptocurrency in an understandable way,
  2. promote Meetups, Hackathons and various Holochain projects,
  3. and above all to highlight the impact of Holochain and its projects!

I work in the Social Impact Lab in Frankfurt - an incubator for Social Entrepreneurship incl. a co-working space. In the future we can organize Holochain Meetups here, but I still need helpers and supporters. If you know someone in Germany who would like to do something in Frankfurt am Main…please feel free to contact me!

And if anyone has ideas for creating or themes for the “Holochain - Learning Ressources”…I would love to hear them!
