Hi all! We're the folks behind Co-op Cloud (coopcloud.tech), a project which aims to build out a digital configuration commons for tech co-ops and democratic tech collectives. Our approach aims to maximise sharing, co-operation and reuse for setting up and maintaining libre software infrastructure. We have a public matrix room at `:autonomic.zone`, feel welcome! The project is currently in public alpha and super young ☁️ 🎩 💻

If you'd like to learn more about the Co-op Cloud, we hold an online public moment each week, our kite flying hour, where you can drop by and have a chat! We're in meet.jit.si/CoopCloudKiteFlyin every Thursday at 15:00 CEST ☀️

If you wanna chat with Servers Co-op people, they're lurking on IRC and Matrix on #:libera.chat

We've already packaged Capsul (git.cyberia.club/Cyberia/capsu shout-out to @forestjohnson and friends) over in git.coopcloud.tech/coop-cloud/ and Servers Co-op already have a live demo where you can try things out: yolo.servers.coop/

@handle just gave an amazing talk about the work going on for Servers Co-op (servers.coop) at the CoTech gathering (coops.tech) 🚀 Here are the slides if you want to take a look pad.autonomic.zone/p/gWsezBjlH

Hi there :blobcatcoffee: !

Among other things, we are currently working on an autosync feature for DNS records.

To be able to prioritize our work, we'd be very much interested if you could tell us what registrar you are using :blobpeek: !

I am setting up a new @peertube instance for myself. Was wondering if there are sensible code of conducts, terms etc someone has that they don't mind sharing with me so I can use on my site? Many thanks for all help with this all. #peertube

@Matt_Noyes @GuerillaOntologist 2) The Photography Gallery held their Screenwalks sessions on meet.coop with streaming to YouTube. They were very happy with the results. screenwalks.com See their 30 June session here: youtu.be/Go-N_0AA8lk

another suggestion:

drawbridging 🏰

👉 similar historical vibes to "enclosing", but more visual
👉 castles = feudalism/monarchism = bogus, outdated
👉 "the drawbridge was there all along?" 😱
👉 after they pull up the drawbridge there's a strong chance they're gonna fire arrows at you

"theft" & "paywalling" & "enclosure" all seem like good terms for specific situations, wouldn't underestimate having a humourous one too tho..

What term best describes when software corps pull features from their free version and force you to pay for them? Especially the case where they take community contributions and put them behind a paywall? "Treehousing" evokes the idea of building a treehouse together but when youre down below, they pull up the ladder on you. "Gangplanking" is perhaps more self-describing ;) other ideas welcome! inspired by @dumpsterqueer and @handle

The comrades at @ruangrupa_ruru are live shortly, tune in to a nice programme and also help load test their self-managed infrastructure 👌

tv.lumbung.space/w/d52dacb5-98

We're running this infrastructure on @coopcloud configurations which are available for all to reuse which aligns with the lumbung model.

Autonomic is proud to be supporting this much needed intervention into reclaiming digital infrastructure.

Watched the FreedomBox BoF at DebConf. It's nice that they can do distro upgrades. I've avoided trying to do that because the amount of complexity and the potential for breakage is high.

Someone mentioned that FreedomBox still seems like an aspirational project, and I agree. After a decade of various projects trying to make self-hosting practical we don't seem anywhere close to mass adoption. There are still hurdles which aren't just a matter of writing better software.

🎉 Our iOS app is finally public! 🎉
snikket.org/blog/snikket-ios-p

This is a huge milestone for the project, and proof of what we can accomplish when a community comes together around a purpose.

The app link will automatically appear in the next Snikket server update (along with some other app-related fixes), but the post has manual instructions for admins who just can't wait 🙂

the cloud is safe bro it's totally fine you can put all your data in there bro it's fine it's secure trust me bro

Another Co-op Cloud Kite-Flying hour is almost upon us! 3pm CEST today (15 minutes from now)

Come hang out, chat, co-work or lurk! It's a public moment for anyone curious about the project to pop by. We'll be in meet.jit.si/CoopCloudKiteFlyin 🚀 ☀️ 💻
