COMPOST ISSUE 02 is already here! An awesome, beautiful, insightful effort by @compost about alternative networks built on care & solidarity. We're smitten!

Read it here: two.compost.digital/

This issue is about how we Inoculate networks with our consideration and attention, against the flattening, homogenizing forces of the internet.

We're taking a step back; widening our scope to probe how we shape digital networks and how they shape us back.

We believe dedicated readerships can directly sustain small alternative publications, without relationships being mediated by the usual suspects.

The funds will go to our contributors, design and web development contractors, and the core team of this project, Mai, Ben, & Udit.

Why a Digital Bake Sale? We’re experimenting with funding goals, a la Patreon, but based on financial transparency & sustainability of the collective instead of an individual creator.

To do this we use @opencollect, a platform we're deeply aligned with: opencollective.com/compost

Show thread

We currently only have our budget secured for our next issue (out in August 👀 ).

So we're boosting our Digital Bake Sale! The best way to support us is with a recurring subscription — that helps us make projections about our financial sustainability. 💫
