Stick with as much free/libre/open software ad you can. Use FDroid instead of the Play Store. It clears away the addiction-ware and delivers tons of boring, useful, community-made stuff.
Anyone want to help build the ethicaledtech.info wiki?
@edsu, any ideas?
Yeah except you don't get to read Agatha Christie if you have to hold a bottle.

But one thing we agreed on is the potential for community moderation to really change the game. When you can't just blame some Jack up there somewhere for stuff you don't like, but you can have a role in changing it, there's potential for users to be more tolerant, sophisticated, and engaged. There is recourse, rather than arbitrariness.
One pattern: I'm not sure about this, but we may be meeting in the middle on content moderation. They started totally anti-censorship, and they've moved toward establishing guardrails. We started with a strong focus on safe spaces but realized it can be really hard to come to agreement on what that means. Maybe birdsite Jack is in a pretty tough spot after all...
I had an interesting convo with ppl from the Minds.com team yesterday at #ETHDenver. Was interesting to encounter the right-libertarian counterpart to our motivations for starting this.
Buy your copy of Ted Nelson's "Computer Lib/Dream Machines" while you can.

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
