After exploring #NextCloud as an alternative to Google Drive, I have some ideas about another project we could host.
OnlyOffice and Collabora are decent replacements for the online shared document editing that Google provides, but they have heavy resource requirements. But both can be used by multiple NextCloud installs, requiring only a public-facing URL.
We could run one of these on a VPS and allow coop members to use these with their own NextCloud instances.
Hello Mastodon! I'm a techy programmer-type person hoping to help build a better world (direct democracy, solidarity economy, etc.). I also happen to live in a vehicle on wild, public lands, moving every couple weeks, foraging, practicing survival skills and helping people where we can. I know a lot about radio, solar, 12v DC power and nature/wildlife as a result. Nice to meet you all! Hope to see familiar and new faces. #introduction

Excited to share this new blog post on my research: https://blog.communitydata.cc/revisiting-the-rise-and-decline/
The pool of active contributors to Wikipedia started declining in 2007. Researchers blamed a calcifying bureaucracy and hostility to newcomers. Are these problems in other wiki communities too? Could there be a deeper reason why these dynamics emerge?
I replicated Halfaker et al 2013's analysis of 'The rise and decline.' The dynamics observed in Wikipedia appear to reoccur again and again in many wiki communities.

@mattcropp @GuerillaOntologist Great article - nice to see the #labornotes talk included - I like Akuno's sober approach: "In our case I think we’ve tried to ... [use an “occupy model;” reduce importance of elected officials and build alternatives; and build different relationships between elected officials and movements] and tried to do them all simultaneously and I think we have an uneven record in that regard."
Did I mention the #readinggroup on #cooperationjackson ? ;-)
Any folks actually working with Cooperation Jackson on this instance? Heard through the grapevine that things have gone seriously sideways. Whole board resigned, from what I hear....😧
Is there any phrase more vacuous than 'thought leader'?
Because Fediverse instances are required to have ridiculous domain names, I just bought superannuated.technology for this...
