Would anyone be interested in having a call to discuss starting a software development co-op? 

I'm a back end developer located in Atlanta, GA with ~8 years of experience, mostly in Go and Rust. I'd love to start looking for some freelance projects, or develop a product, if I could find a few people with front end programming, design, marketing, etc. skills. Any takers?

Help: I need to reference something on Mastodon in a blog post, but I refuse to say "toot". The fact that "tweet" is in popular parlance is bad enough.

Are there any code forges that are operated as a co-op? I'm aware of @codeberg :codeberg: and git.coop but I'm making a list and could use some more, especially U.S. based ones.

Me: stereotypes of southern people are usually inaccurate and classist

Also me: calls my son Bubba

Does anyone who uses BigBlueButton know how to save a recording? Or is this instance just broken? If I'm recording then pause it, or end the chat, it doesn't show up in the list of recordings and I can't find a save button anywhere. I'm on the instance.
