I want a deployment platform for apps that operates as a user-owned cooperative rather than as a privately-owned, for-profit enterprise, but I'm not aware of anything in the space operating that way. Open-source platform systems like Flynn are the closest, but to me part of the value prop is in centralizing expertise while distributing risk, and open source doesn't scratch that itch.
Given what I know about group consensus and decisions, I feel like I might be able to help found just such a cooperative - but I don't know who else is interested.
* Coherent platforms are sold based on their ability to add value, and monetized aggressively against a fear of future commoditization, leading to inflated costs relative to what could be done.
* Centralizing operational expertise is a valuable thing, but the structure of most businesses blunts accountability towards a platform's users & ability to understand feedback
Also into this kind of thing
Not sure exactly what you thinking, a few things about that may be worth looking at-
