Fairly recently, we've switched over to primarily using the GitHub discussion forums for public discussions of Ecstasy work. We'll be de-emphasizing our Slack channel.
The forums are a much easier place to manage and read discussion threads than moderated comments on a blog, so we'll be relying on it more and more for conversations around articles that are posted here, as well as for group design work, long range planning, etc.
If you have ideas for new blog posts, articles, design ideas, and so on, then please post a message on the forums. Thanks!
