We should have a holiday on the moon! Closed Mon 30 Mar 2015 12:04PM

Loomio Helper Bot is really keen for your group to invest in a trip to the moon. Apparently the space-cheese is delicious. But the implications for your carbon footprint are worrying.
Is it a good idea? Loomio Helper Bot wants to know what you think!
If you’re clear about your position, click one of the icons below (hover over the decision buttons for a description of what each one means).
You’ll be prompted to make a short statement about the reason for your decision. This makes it easy to see a summary of what everyone thinks and why. You can change your mind and edit your decision freely until the proposal closes.

Holidays are overrated!

Some code her yes code

A bigger code snippet

import foo
A = 10

Henry Gomersall Fri 27 Mar 2015 3:47PM

Ach, it's because A=10 isn't it?


Josy Boelen Fri 27 Mar 2015 6:33PM

Editing is not that great because the window is to narrow, which is understandable as the targeted audience uses smartphones


Henry Gomersall Fri 27 Mar 2015 6:35PM

Yeah, it's frustrating. One usage mode might be to have logical summaries, with links to gists for detailed discussion of the code.

I once was a fan of 'Literate Programming', somehow that reflects what we are trying to do here?


Henry Gomersall Fri 27 Mar 2015 6:45PM

yeah maybe. I've not read it, but I can understand the sentiment I think.
