I am sure those links are meaningful to some people if they’re into programming and coding. For the rest of us, I wonder if Athens and Foam have their own web pages which aren’t quite as esoteric as what is posted on GitHub.

I answered my own question.

From the link Satis provided to GitHub I found this link explaining Foam - https://foambubble.github.io/foam/ 

A Google search lead me to this link for Athens - https://www.athensresearch.org/ The website doesn’t say much, and is very preliminary, though it drops some names.

A note of solidarity, Daly: I too find GitHub baffling.

So do I. I consider it a completely different software experience, altogether.

And I won’t say it’s unwelcoming, but to me, it’s overwhelming. From the first page of whatever software you’re looking at, everybody’s speaking a different language. They all seem to know what they’re talking about & they’re all set.

That’s fine, it’s just where the fun ends for me.
