If you want to enable a new kind of Internet I suggest you get yourself to the 2018 #DWebSummit at the @internetarchive
The 2016 event was a watershed moment. Both @matrixdotorg and @ipfsbot launched there amidst a rich tapestry of technology, philosophy, ethics, and activism.
I'm going to work with my IA friends to make sure that more #platformcoop will be on offer. In 2016 Maira Sutton from Shareable was there, hoping for a lot more.

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
