This is a continuation of the recent discussion about engagement with the Solid community, which resulted in several SAFE folk signing up to try Solid, learn, engage, and help share and build on the dual, overlapping visions of SAFE and Solid.
I’ve put it here to make it easier to share our Solid WebIDs (you can add yours at the end of this post - see below for how to sign up), and for any discussions that are better here than in the Solid chat (ie stuff that is really about SAFE only).
A couple of days ago @JPL (supportive as ever, thank you John) took my concerns and jumped in to try Solid out by signing up for a Solid Pod (it’s free) and asked for help on the Solid gitter. If anyone wants to join him (us), head over to Inrupt.net and sign up. We could then figure out how to set up a Solid on SAFEnetwork discussion group using our Solid PODs and invite other Solid users to join us.
This would help us understand Solid, where their project is, where it fits wrt SAFE, what we can add, what we can borrow, and what we could build together. While learning we will be increasing awareness of SAFE and its great community, values, goals and capabilities with people involved with and learning about Solid.
How about it? Who will join @JPL’s SAFE Solid crew?

If you’ve liked this post you have a Solid pod and WebID so I will list them here and we can use them in our Solid apps:
This post is now a Wiki so feel free to edit it and add your own WebID to the above list.
So far I am just adding these to my Solid ‘social network’ - edit your public profile and drag the URL onto the second (lower) target).
