Skype Chat Archives

One of the primary ways that the FHIR community interact is via Skype conversations. They are free to join (any existing member can add others) and offer a very rapid way of getting assistance and making comments.

The conversations can be a bit of a firehose at times, and it’s easy to lose sight of comments and notes that you might want to remember, so some months ago Josh set up a system whereby the archives are posted in a more convenient format to read.

It’s easy to forget this – which is why Grahame made the following comment recently:

which reminds me – periodic reminder for all participants on this skype channel:

– archives are posted publicly at https://chats.fhir.me/feeds/skype/implementers.html
– your contributions are covered by the HL7 operations manual (particularly section 16), see http://www.hl7.org/documentcenter/public_temp_8236E5D8-1C23-BA17-0C1F31796A116136/membership/HL7_Governance_and_Operations_Manual.pdf

(most importantly this says, you yield the copyright of material arising from this discussion to HL7)

There are plenty of other resources for those working with FHIR – as detailed in the wiki, but the skype chat is one of the more popular ones, so the archives can be very useful!

(It’s also a timely reminder that everything posted on the chat is available publicly…)
