Would anybody here like to practice improv?

I've recently learned about discord and realized that the group voice chat is the perfect place to do some improv comedy online. I was really surprised it's not a thing yet, so I've made a server:

discord.gg/XHwFXQs

Come join us! You don't have to be good at this, English doesn't need to be your first language, socially awkward people are welcome! (I am one)

If you'd like to chat and make up some funny scenes - come have fun with us!

Just discovered an awesome website - voiceroulette.io, allows you to talk to random strangers on the internet.

For me, as an introvert, it's absolutely amazing, no-pressure anonymous opportunity to have a fun conversation.

It has launched only recently, so there isn't a lot of people there yet, but I really hope it takes off. Come chat with us!

Incredibly fascinating interview about education process at Elon Musk's private school. Damn I envy those kids.

Jesuschrist that expanded my mind. And also gave me a panic attack.

Human body is 70% of water so we’re basically cucumbers with anxiety.

I've made a few cool upgrades to Writing Streak during the past several days. Really happy about how it's coming together!

- Bright theme.
- Export rich text or markdown, filter the documents you want to export using search.
- Writing Prompts.
- Hotkeys help.
- Simple writing mode (write using only the 1000 most common words).
- Countless minor tweaks, improvements and bug fixes.

If you haven't tried Writing Streak yet - come check it out:

Just added a few stunning artworks to my little collection on ArtStation. Fuck, some people are talented.

Also, recently discovered an incredible artist, who also records timelapse videos of his drawings with absolutely hilarious commentary:

Sorry everyone who hasn't yet received an email about the free Writing Streak account. Since it took off on HN a few days ago (news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1), I'm getting hundreds of emails(crazy cool stuff!).

I promise I'll get back to you =)

(If you've messaged me more than 4 days ago and haven't received a reply yet - you can message me again just in case)

Just discovered fnd.io - allows you to browse ios appstore in your browser, conveniently displaying all the app screenshots. Absolute goldmine for researching app ideas and possible designs.

@Priyaji Awesome! Thanks for sharing, looking forward to your feedback =)

@Cysteine

Thank you, I'm glad you liked it!

I should've made this more clear - before you login, everything is saved in your browser, after you login everything is saved on server.

As you write, your writing is autosaved(there's a save indicator in the bottom left corner).

You can click on days in the timeline to see what you wrote that day. You can export everything you wrote from the main menu.

I will work on better help and intro to make these things are more clear.

@SuperLeo You mean completely native, not just wrapped in electron? To be honest - unlikely. To accomplish that I would either have to learn a completely new skillset or hire a developer. This app would have to get REALLY successful before I can afford that.

But electron version and mobile PWA that works offline seem very doable, I'd love to make them. They'd share 90% of the code, so it wouldn't be a big problem.

@atenorio This is an interesting idea, one more person has suggested it too, so I will be thinking about this. I don't quite see how it would work, but I'll try to figure it out.

For now, you should check out slate.js, it is an extremely flexible and powerful editor, and writing streak is built on top of it. It might be more useful for extending your own project.
