Want to make apps for the @Purism #Librem5? We published a simple roadmap for the libhandy GTK+ phone widgets library, so you can get a grasp of our release cadence: https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/libhandy/wikis/home
While they are not sufficient, I would emphasize a bit more that open protocols are necessary.
I don't think it is possible to get where I think we want to go using one platform where everybody needs to use the same software and host. Doesn't allow enuf room for variation or local creativity. And the singular platform will always get too big to understand.
But boots on the ground organizing live people are also necessary and more important.
What allows them to dominate? They have financial resources smaller players don't. For example, they can pay as many fulltime staff as they need to make their products and services more attractive than more freedom-respecting alternatives. They can get their PR posters slapped up all over major cities. Protocols + cooperatives offers us a way to compete with this. The point of Platform Cooperativism is that neither can do it alone, which is what Matt's essay seems to miss.
Matt Slater responds to the rise of the #PlatformCooperativism movement by issuing a call for #ProtocolCooperativism:

Not every baker and schoolteacher needs to understand HTTP or assembly language, but they all should understand why net neutrality is important.
For over two years I've been working on #GliderInk , a graphic novel which aims to introduce people to hacker values and create an aesthetic different from Hollywood's "black hat" stereotype or a grim cyberpunk future.
The @GetTogetherComm project is making an open source federated alternative to MeetUp.com.
You can already use their first instance (https://gettogether.community) but they need help with building the federation side of things, so that instances can link together and with the rest of the Fediverse.
If you're a coder and interested in helping, you may want to take a look at this post:
The intent was always to support federation, and there is some very basic event federation already using simple JSON feeds.
Fully ActivityPub support (needed to interoperate with Mastodon) is more complicated, and while the data export is working, we need contributors to help with the pub/sub part of the protocol.
There's an open issue for it here: https://github.com/GetTogetherComm/GetTogether/issues/60
Linux on the desktop
- Usually requires effort to set up
- Some apps missing
- Gaming not as good as Windows
- Updates don't suck as much as Mac or Win
- Free (in every sense of the word)
- Great dev experience
- Comes in many (very different) flavours

social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
