Go Group on new Social Network “Openbook”

Openbook is a new social network, today they started the alpha test.

This is a closed test, supporters only (you still have a few days to support if you want: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1520156881/openbook-privacy-friendly-fun-and-honest-social-ne
CORRECTION: https://indiegogo.com/projects/openbook-it-s-time-for-a-better-social-network/.

For now, it’s also exclusively for iOS and Android, the Web app will follow in a few weeks hopefully.

Anyway, I created a #Go #Baduk #Weiqi group there, to be found at /c/baduk (or just search for “baduk” there).

These photos were shot hastily, so not good quality, but I needed them for the group.

Hope to see y’all there soon :slight_smile:

Oh, forgot to say: you can find me there as @bonobo , who’da thunkit, eh? :wink:


@trohde, I use the same avatar everywhere: forums, social networks, apps, you name it. But if you tell me you’re the guy donning the gorilla costume in the team’s photo…

…I’ll have to consider myself an amateur and ask to become your student.


LOL, no :joy:

Gorillas are very kind and respectable beings also, but IF I’d have been there and IF I’d wear a simian costume it would definitely be a Bonobo … it was some time in 1990 or ’91 when I chose them as my “heraldic beast”, so to speak :slight_smile: and I also use this same avatar image almost everywhere.

I’m sorry, I got confused b/c I supported them on both Kickstarter and Indiegogo …

I think this is Openbook’s current crowdfunding:

Seems like they increased the perk prices by tenfold? It seemed so cheap on kickstarter. I was planning on backing the project until I saw the new prices on indigogo…

The cheapest I can see now on Indiegogo is 20 € — and IIRC the lowest early access perk on Kickstarter was for 14 € (IIRC that’s what I paid, cheapskate that I am :wink: — that’s four Starbuck coffees or something. Okay by me, especially since the beta test begins some time in April, and you won’t have to pay anything to participate in that :wink:
