Doubly so given that FLOSS came out so highly in our vote on values.
'wherever practicable' is the tricky part to define of course.
@neil Vague, I know, but the reality is we make those judgments all the time -- Jitsi is a great idea, but I often fall back onto Zoom. Our social.coop membership onboarding discussion tonight is on Google Hangouts... As Brandeis said, "life is lived on the slippery slope."
@Matt_Noyes Yep. I think given our values we're in a great position to favour FLOSS offerings. It might involve a bit more time/resource/peer-help but I think on the whole collectively we have the mindset willing to do that.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
