General question for social.coop -- how should we make decisions about which tools to use?

For example, in the CWG, I created an doc on and then asked people working on that doc to use it.

When it came to switching to on , we discussed it at length.

In a recent phone chat one person suggested google hangouts and others suggested Zoom and we agreed to use the latter.

Do we need some protocol or etiquette on this?



@Matt_Noyes
I'd personally go for a list of "desired traits" like for instance:

1. Open source
2. Federated
3. Accessible
4. Cross platotrm
Etc...

If two comparable services are proposed, the one checking more boxes in the list is selected.

@Antanicus @Matt_Noyes a great opportunity for a tech policy, which is essentially what @Antanicus is suggesting. Here's the IWOC policy as an example incarceratedworkers.org/tech-policy

This is good. I like the dashboard of invest/divest! Sort of like the platform capitalism footprint idea I had.

Cool! I'll move this to the tech WG so we don't lose track of it
