Tooling for group self-awareness on holochain


Groups, especially remote colaborative groups, often lack contextual information about collaborators that makes working together harder. Co-locating oneself across a number of spaces in the context of a group (or groups) provides an important avenue for improving both sense-making and working together. Where provides a generalized pattern for creating shared maps for groups to see the emergent "whereness" of each other across self-evolved sets of maps.

Initial prototype: screencast
