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 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
