fwiw, this might not be worth it right now, but just to put it out there in case ppl feel like pursuing it later: if someone were to register a trademark for $400, then Twitter has a process to requesting access to a inactive account handle :wink:

@itsmisscs so excited about this talk you gave btw! https://misscs.github.io/rupturing-reforming/assets/player/KeynoteDHTMLPlayer.html#11

Don't support there's any recording?
itsmisscs 13:04:28
@patcon Thanks for the Twitter details. Good to know there is an avenue. We will have to wait until August to see how our funding ideas pan out. As for the talk, there will be a recording, but I’m not sure when Eyeo will release it. I will definitely share it out though :slightly_smiling_face:
itsmisscs 13:08:55
In lieu of `@vnyc` handle and `v.nyc` domain we really want, we’re thinking of `vnyc_g0v/g0v_vnyc` as possible identifier for the project. Thoughts/feedback?
au 13:14:49
`g0vnyc` ?

@au agreed. i’ve never been a big fan of them myself. i :heart: your suggestion. it is great!

itsmisscs 08:40:40
@au and @colinmegill We have some questions for both you regarding Polis. Would it be okay to fire them off to you in a public channel so other folks can participate?
colinmegill 09:53:19
Public is great

Will fire those over tonight. Thank you in advance for taking the time to review and answer. We’ve been heads down working on our talk. T-minus 2 hours until we talk about vTaiwan, g0v, Polis, and g0vNYC. :raised_hands::skin-tone-5:

@colinmegill @au Here are our questions. Thank you again! ```- Did vTaiwan add any additional features or make any changes to http://Pol.is|Pol.is?
- Do you have any examples of http://Pol.is|Pol.is projects using an authentication layer other than Twitter or Facebook?
- What tests did you set up to study the use/problems/limitations of http://Pol.is|Pol.is?
- Is vTaiwan running their own instance of http://Pol.is|Pol.is or using the hosted solution?
- Are we able to use the http://Pol.is|Pol.is API?
- Is there an open project roadmap for http://Pol.is|Pol.is?

1. Did vTaiwan add any additional features or make any changes to http://Pol.is|Pol.is?
colinmegill 14:28:36
Audrey and the g0v team were early adopters of the tool, gave us enormous amounts of helpful feedback. We were, at times, on a 24 hour loop of feature request and pushing code during the initial vTaiwan experiments

colinmegill 14:28:47
2. Do you have any examples of http://Pol.is|Pol.is projects using an authentication layer other than Twitter or Facebook?
colinmegill 14:30:40
Yes. Alternativet in Denmark is an excellent example - they are a political party and their 11,000 members log into their system. http://pol.is|pol.is has a system called `xid` for 'external id'. If you know who your people are, you can embed us and pass that to us to keep track of who is who.
colinmegill 14:30:42
-----------------------
colinmegill 14:30:55
3. What tests did you set up to study the use/problems/limitations of http://Pol.is|Pol.is?
colinmegill 14:31:08
Hard to answer. Could you clarify?
colinmegill 14:31:16
----------------------
colinmegill 14:31:20
4. Is vTaiwan running their own instance of http://Pol.is|Pol.is or using the hosted solution?
colinmegill 14:31:58
Currently, everyone using http://pol.is|pol.is is using hosted. The Taiwanese Exec Yuan will be the first on prem deployment, and is currently in progress.
colinmegill 14:32:02
-------------------
colinmegill 14:32:13
5. Are we able to use the http://Pol.is|Pol.is API?
colinmegill 14:34:11
Easiest answer is 'not for free and not for everything'. There is a lot of customization and control you can accomplish via the http://pol.is|pol.is iFrame with data attributes - that's the way we've gone with the community based on requests and it's really quick. Basically no one is using the API, with the exception to maybe export data.
colinmegill 14:34:15
--------------------------
colinmegill 14:34:22
6. Is there an open project roadmap for http://Pol.is|Pol.is?
colinmegill 14:34:23
Nope
colinmegill 14:35:16
-----------------------------
colinmegill 14:36:07
Best of luck with your talk - happy to clarify anything if there are questions

itsmisscs 03:36:31
@colinmegill Thank you so much. This was incredibly helpful. One clarifying question around `xid` system. In our use case, we want to tie zip code to each user, since zip codes are not unique, how could we tie this to each user record? Would it still be through `xid` or a custom data attribute?
