The diary and photos of Chris Beach. I'm into windsurfing, coding, badminton, drawing and composing music using computers and synths.

You know, you can add your own quotes on the quotes page. Need inspiration? Think along these lines:
"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?" Epicurus

As my SE23 forum grows, I've been astonished at the number of people who've been willing to visit local venues in order to get their forum profile verified.

We now have 650 signed-up members and of those, 140 are verified. This means that almost all topics have representation from people who the forum team have met in real life.

This is really valuable, especially for topics which recommend local businesses. Finding ways to build trust in online communities has been a long-term interest of mine. In fact it was the subject of my university dissertation.

Turns out a simple, scalable, local-first approach works wonders.
