This week I translated in Bulgarian:

I find that much better than the other designs. Still not as professional as Maidsafe’s. Don’t we have a “corporate” design? (I’m a media designer.)

I fear the whole campaign is too early, IMHO it doesn’t make sense to advertise a concept with pre-alpha software to the general public.

I would never open an URL that I can’t read…

Why so serious @fiee? Look at this as a test… If the test is successful it will be good, if it is not successful we do not lose much. (The site already has over 1400 unique visits, and some people who visit it on a monthly basis + some of them signed up in the forum, even released their sites)

I am not a designer, just an ordinary person who believes in the idea of ​​the SAFE network and makes a contribution.

I value your initiative and effort, but I fear the advertising of something that still doesn’t work, as great as the concept might be, to the general public is not really helping the case.

I can understand your urge to finally do something.
But shouting the good news on the streets just makes you a street preacher.

Maybe Bulgaria is a good playground for such a campaign. Great, if you can create an active Bulgarian community of SAFE users and developers. And if Bulgaria becomes the first country where SAFEnet sees widespread use, even better.
Sorry if that sounds arrogant. I don’t know a lot about your country and the political situation there. It seldom appears in German news, that might even be a good sign.

Yes of course. And I don’t do a lot besides wearing my SAFE t-shirts at open source meetings. I got some ideas for apps, but can’t seem to concentrate on programming any more. Also can’t really wrap my mind around that whole serverless concept. Anyway.

As a media designer and lover of art and typography I cringe at a lot of posters or other advertising material in the world of open source and charities (don’t talk about small businesses). Yours is already quite good. I don’t see the meaning of the kois (maybe you discussed it here, I didn’t read the whole thread) and thus wouldn’t have thought of such an image, but they look good at least.

The design of Maidsafe’s PR (logos, website, t-shirts…) is great. I couldn’t do this. And since that’s my benchmark I don’t do anything in that regard. Doesn’t mean you shouldn’t.
For the time being I concentrate on other things, e.g. trying to make a living and being active in the TeX community. I’ll become an active SAFEnet user as soon as it works.

Hello friends,

maybe you remember that last year I made 5000 flyers which I thought to hand out on the streets but unfortunately, it turned out that Sofia Municipality is collecting a tax fee for this so I gave up…

But there is no fee for placing flyers in mail boxes :slight_smile: So I started to distribute them.

The interesting part is how to document the work a.k.a. Proof of work… The solution is my old Outdoor camera:

The battery was dead, so I bought a new one:

I took a watch strap and I adapted it to carry it on my hand:


Here is the result:

I added a calendar to the site https://safenetwork.bg/calendar/ , there you can find an up - to - date link to my Strava Beacon (You’ll see my live location and progress on a map as soon as I start moving.) The link is different for each activity.

Hello friends :slight_smile:

the Long Night is over and the summer is coming. It’s time for a road trip, so I made a new version of the Alpha 2 poster and in the coming weeks I will walk in the countryside… Sofia is not Bulgaria and the others of my fellow citizens deserve to feel SAFE too :slight_smile:
