I think the argument being we should have coops that interoperate on top of a shared protocol; not one coop that dominates an entire market with a platform.
Relates somewhat to the Statebook article (https://newsocialist.org.uk/do-we-really-need-a-statebook/), which argued that the state would serve us better if it focused on building and promoting shared protocols, not on building a Facebook alternative.
social.coop is 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]
