I'm in, and the demographics look like Reddit's, but look, there's an iOS gaming group…
If Jimmy Wales wants to tackle on Facebook and Twitter, maybe he should bring collaboration features – unless I'm missing the point?
2) I wasn't thinking about Mastodon, but thank you for bringing your knowledge and experience to this discussion. However, I assume that the Fediverse wouldn't exist _at this scale_ without Mastodon. Am I wrong?
@redbookworm @neil @Matt_Noyes It certainly wouldn’t exist at this _scale_ without Gnu Social either figuring that Mastodon was written not as a replacement for twitter but a reimplementation of Gnu Social and got to piggyback off of an already existing network and social graph. And Gnu Social wouldn’t exist without #laconica and #statusnet and the #ostatus protocol work. And ostatus came out of alot of work being done around #indieweb
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
