Currently in Melbourne — December 7th, 2022
Wind warnings for our bays and coasts today.

The weather, currently.

Partly cloudy with wind gusts and a chance of afternoon showers.

Today will start with a low of 12˚C, climb to our top of 20˚C by lunchtime, before dropping back down into the teens for a potentially showery evening. During the day it will be partly cloudy, with light south-westerly winds of 15 to 25 km/h tending south to south-westerly at 25 to 40km/h in the early afternoon. These gusts bring strong wind warnings for Port Phillip and Western Port Bays, and the West, Central, Central Gippsland and East Gippsland Coasts. The UV rating will be high today at 10.

What you need to know, currently.

We are ramping up efforts to finish building Project Mushroom ASAP — a safe platform to promote connection, mutual aid, and transformative action at a critical moment in history.

​​As a supporter of Currently we’re inviting you to be one of the first to join Project Mushroom today — A platform is only as good as the people in it, right?

You can get a Project Mushroom account by following this link. Best practice is to use the same username you had on Twitter to help people find you. If you get stuck, check out our On-Boarding Instructions and our Support Page below, or email us: info@tryprojectmushroom.com

We’re also giving you the first access to something we've been working on for weeks: An automated tool to help you import your friends from Twitter and rebuild your social media networks on Project Mushroom.

Our Twitter-to-Project Mushroom migration assistant is live now! https://start.projectmushroom.social/

This tool is a work in progress, so please bear with us. It will only work if you first register for Project Mushroom and select your username using the steps above. If you see any funky bugs, email info@tryprojectmushroom.com

From the very beginning, we've promised Project Mushroom to be a safe place on the internet — and this tool is designed for you to share this space with your most trusted allies, friends, and colleagues that you want to change the world with. We are the only Twitter alternative (as far as I know) that has a team of paid moderators — and a commitment to racial, social, and climate justice. Our goal is to make migrating your entire social network from Twitter as easy, safe, and enjoyable as possible.

Your support has made it possible for us to build this community, and we aren't finished yet. We have a Kickstarter going right now, and we need your help getting it across the finish line. We’ve raised almost 100k and have 10 more days to raise 100k more. When you pledge your support, you’ll have a chance to vote on an exclusive Project Mushroom sticker design.

Is this all a lot of info? We feel you. Tomorrow night — Wednesday, December 7th at 7 PM EST — we’re hosting an information session to tell you more about Project Mushroom and answer your questions. Reserve your spot now!
