@mike_hales @lynnfoster @mayel @bhaugen HI All - sorry, i've been offline for a while. Laura was just saying she's not a fan of Linked Open Data since she recognises how hard it can be to get everyone to agree on formats and protocols and knows (from experience) how it fails when data is inaccurate or incomplete - most of the DigLife maps have been built by hand - akaik
OPEN 2018 #PlatformCoop conference, will focus on 3 themes:
The showcase will present examples from functioning platform co-ops
The Collaborative & Peer to Peer tech sessions will feature presentations on alternative digital currencies, open source tools and technology and the development of the new platforms and protocols
Discussions on the changing narrative will explore the co-op vision and the evolving politics and philosophy of a world of abundance
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
