Is there something like Meet dot Coop, but with #Jitsi? I want to keep paying a #cooperative for a video conferencing service but I'm getting tired of #BigBlueButton, it's just too buggy 😪 and today Jitsi saved me when BBB failed

We'll try to get better at posting ahead of time so that more folks can join in if they are curious :)

So you just arrived here from twitter and it's quiet. Real quiet. That's because there's no algorithm here designed to drive engagement(which equals profit).

Here, you are the algorithm. It's up to you to find and follow people that are interesting to you. You can also see who they follow and who else follows them, as you build it up, it gets more interesting.

Also, if you find people you don't like or entire instances you don't like, you can mute or block them. You are in control.

Welcome new folks to Social.Coop! Please post a self-introduction to let people know you are here and what interests you.
You get a free account on Meet.Coop, so don't forget to register for that.
Register on Loomio to participate in running the co-op.
Also, please check out our code of conduct

Thanks to all that came out to the strategy session yesterday!

Wonderful energy, lots of opportunities and just a great excuse to start a Saturday morning with cooperative minded folk!

Hello community!

We also rely on our community to abide by our Code of Conduct. If you haven't looked at it in awhile, we encourage you to check it out again!

Minutes from the CWG Ops team meeting:

We silenced the "noagendasocial" instance for hosting multiple users that were in violation of our CoC.

For reference, the list of blocked instances is located here:

Co-op Data Club is a new .

The idea is simple: any coop that wants to promote other coops and/or wants to be promoted by other coops can join. Its free and doesn't require promoting anything.

Individuals can also join by signing up to the clubs newsletter.

We are focused on email: many coops have a newsletter, and it would cost nothing for them to add promotions of other coops in the newsletters.
