The reason I’m using github as the platform is expedience, I want to get the ball rolling. If it goes well then I’m sure people will want to move to a more open platform.

      great idea. I do not quite understand though, where the meetings take place. I saw an IRC node reference: https://github.com/zx9w/read-together/issues/1

      but not clear if the IRC node is the discussion platform, what topic, how folks in different time zones participate, and so on.

        Thank you for engaging. The idea is to use the issues to synchronize on what we want to accomplish with the meeting and then it’s a free-for-all tool-wise.

        The IRC channel was started from the NixOS discourse where pie_ (made issue #2) suggested reading Build Systems a la Carte. Right now that is the place to talk to us who have started reading that paper, but I figured the issues would be sufficient as a communication platform for forming new such groups.

          I found out about https://scihive.org/ recently which allows uploading an annotating research papers. Super cool!

            For example, a friend wanted to read “The Semantic Elegance of Applicative Languages” so we talked on Discord and annotated it here:
