We've been given the opportunity for us to give a short (8 minutes) talk at the conference, and thinking it would be a good opportunity to do some community reflection and distill "lessons learned" from our journey thus-far that others might benefit from.
So, interested in social.coop folks' thoughts generally, and knowing who might be in the room and interested in co-presenting?
@mattcropp It might be interesting to talk about the tech bottleneck -- that is, a single instance is too small and perhaps lacks funds to employ one or two of its own to maintain/upgrade/improve the instance. But that work should be cooperative - the production and tech maintenance work should be cooperativized as a step toward building out our platform cooperative ecosystem...?
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
