Urbit is maturing in the non-technical sense as well!
We held another Urbit meetup yesterday. Even more people showed up, and even more fun was had. It’s great to see how the community is growing, and how many diverse and interesting people are drawn to the project. We’re definitely attracting the right kind of crowd. What’s even more interesting, is that we had a camera crew walking around!
These guys are shooting a documentary on Urbit, with the hopes of passing the result on to a big publisher. This, combined with an upcoming article on Wired, is going to give us some cool coverage in the media. On the one hand, it’s good to get the word out there. On the other hand, is Urbit ready for the mainstream?
Of course, it’ll still be a while before we actually get there, but I’m curious to see how things go when we do.
