I want to share a fresh install of Lobste.rs with a slightly modified UX, repurposed for the investing & personal finance communities. Since the flow of news in this area is much lower than IT, I tried shifting the focus from link aggregation to question-asking and conversation. My hope is for investing to be the primary topic of the site, but I expect the conversation to inevitably segway into personal finance at times.
The current PF/FI/RE communities are plagued with low-signal posts and off-topic comments. I believe Lobste.rs is THE software that can solve this, and I’d like to thank everybody who contributed to the codebase.
I also assume there’s a potential userbase overlap with Lobste.rs, since most of you who work in computing are well-positioned to retire early. As pushcx mentioned in #lobsters, there’s a running joke on r/financialindependence that they are 99% software engineers.
Would be great to get your feedback.
