Flux #23 - Junto Demo, Pack Calls, Meetups, and More

A Movement For Authenticity

Hey, Eric here.

First off, thank you for your patience as we prepare to launch. We’ve been heads down building the mobile app and will have a demo for you all in May. We’ll circle back with an official release date once we figure out a few architectural pieces re: Holochain.

In the meantime, here’s an overview of some of our other developments:

  • Yaz made another great video for us. Feel free to share the link below or download the mp4 here. All of our growth has and will be word of mouth.

  • We’re going to revisit monthly Junto Pack calls. They’re going to take place the first Sunday of every month at 2pm ET, starting on May 5th. Feel free to join if you’d like to receive more intimate updates on what’s happening month to month, ask our core team any questions, and see how you can get involved. We’ll post the link to the video conference in our Slack channel here.

  • We’re hosting a Junto meetup on May 24th at our new space in Brooklyn, NY. This will be a monthly freeform event where people can meet other community members in person and share whatever they’d like (projects, poetry, music, misc. talents). The goal is to create a blueprint for other people to host their own freeform events and grow a distributed network of ‘Junto Dens’ (aka chapters). We’ll send an RSVP page in our next Flux issue - all are welcome :)

  • Junto stickers, bracelets, t-shirts, and hoodies are under production and will be delivered in June, as promised. If you reserved a username, we’ll confirm those in June as well. If you missed the Kickstarter and want to get involved, you can still do so on our Indiegogo page here.

As always, much love to all of you. We’re going to make some noise come late summer.

PS. We’re looking for a mobile engineer to join forces with us. We’re using Flutter, which is a framework for building fast, native cross-platform apps. Send me an email at eric@junto.foundation if interested. (https://junto.substack.com/p/flux-13-create-with-us)
