Puzzled . . @mako makes a clear pitch on "Free software production needs free tools" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_nK6nP_RCY&feature=youtu.be
And is very clear on #commons and #P2P (though says most code comes from solo not collaboration!). Yet not a hint of coop ownership of #platforms to keep tools honest & open (GitHub!). Surely tools today become platforms? And platforms require collaboration even if code doesn't? So why doesn't #coop follow automatically, as we talk tools? How does libre not equal coop in FLOSS world?
@mike_hales Because FLOSS world is a meritocracy and not a democracy?
Is this cultural silos? Entrepreneurial temperament? Tech nerds & facilitators can work very happily togather (#Enspiral). But to start, it calls for acceptance that the other community is there, and knows stuff that gets stuff done. Calls for a social-cultural mission too, rather than a tech mission.
Tech nerds can build this bridge? But not big-ego Tech Gods?
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
