Nice definition from #cht #hackbase #commonground section:
CHT is a #coliving infrastructure, not a community.
- Community-based systems are reproduced through people explaining things to each other (over and over again).
- Infrastructural systems are formed and reproduced through defining processes.
@freshbox and there's also consumer co-ops and multi-stakeholder co-ops which are harder to use traditional partnerships for.
But it's always *possible* to have partnerships that *are* effectively the same as co-ops. Co-ops are mainly dedication to https://www.ica.coop/en/whats-co-op/co-operative-identity-values-principles and partnerships that do that adequately basically *are* co-ops.
Thinking about plug-and-play Mastodon-compatible micro-servers.
Could be built around a Raspberry Pi Zero W, configurable through being plugged into a computer via USB with a super simple wizard. Only has to support a single household of users. The "consumer router" of Mastodon servers.
Make it super easy to get your non-technical family off of FB/Twitter and into better touch with you.
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
