SBC was recently one of the instances datamined by researchers at the Univ. of Milan.

There is a discussion over on loomio about the mastodon scraping incident and some actions we could choose to take at social.coop ---> https://www.loomio.org/d/qbZTgtjs/mastodon-scraping-incident
📖 meeting minutes from our second social.coop tech meeting are here --> https://www.loomio.org/d/UwAeiBgE/meeting-minutes/2
@kat I like the idea! maybe also a bit you write before commencing the work about expectations, then can review that against reality.
I don't *have* to record timesheets, but I think it can be quite positive to do so, if they are for my benefit. helping be a bit more focused on a task.
implemented as a CLI tool could make sense... there are many of those already, but not with the aspect of reflection/review.
@douginamug the percentages seem to add up to more than 100% from what maths my sleepy brain can achieve from bed
For real like Bandcamp is exactly the kind of service we *hoped* the internet would give us: “hey, people make things, they set their own price inc. free, we provide the storefront, you buy it and the money goes to the creator, you get it in a DRM-free format and can play it however you want, we just make money to keep going & improving and aren’t a VC-funded nightmare company of rampant reckless growth that will do something nightmarish and implode.”
We need more media platforms like that.
I was considering going to fosdem, but not really that interested in open source in itself, but wider topics about society/community/people and technology. I don't feel very inspired when I look at https://fosdem.org/2020/
Any views from people that have been before? Or other conferences I might like?
@CreatureOfTheHill @admin temporarily fixed... we do regenerate the certs, but don't reload nginx automatically, once https://git.coop/social.coop/tech/sauce/merge_requests/2 is merged it should resolve that for future expiries.
Just another wandering soul
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
