Links to talks, mentions the update that we'll have a table @SeaGL for the first time!

Several team members from Snowdrift.coop will be speaking at @SeaGL in November

More details on our event posting at our forum: community.snowdrift.coop/t/sea

Thanks to partnership with @OSUOSLhttps://osuosl.org we are finally getting our core servers and systems more solid and reliable!

Dealing with those things has been a major distraction and obstacle (costing us months to years even). We're now going to have that stuff in place as a stronger foundation for the rest of our development and organizing!

(Longer blog post coming once the process is farther along)

Snowdrift.coop will have a full booth at the upcoming LinuxFest NW April 26-28 in Bellingham, WA

Come hear about progress! We're also recruiting new volunteers and starting formal discussions with the first outside projects!

New homepage with fancy animated video is now live at snowdrift.coop

We only spent about 2 years of (on and off) work on it, so don't expect perfection. ;)

Hopefully, we'll get around to writing blog post about it sometime soon.

Maybe it's unrealistic to see excitement about a ToS or Privacy Policy but we've worked to make the best, human-readable, ethical new policies:

- snowdrift.coop/terms

- snowdrift.coop/privacy

Primary driver of the overhaul is announcing our new forum (also highly adjusted to be the best it can be):

community.snowdrift.coop

All connected policies including Code of Conduct have been overhauled.

community.snowdrift.coop/guide

Feedback always welcome. Coming soon: blog posts, more announcements…

some Snowdrift.coop team members and supporters will be at 2018, this weekend in Portland and also stopping by the expo hall of next week.

If you're going and want to meet up, let us know.

Hi all, Snowdrift.coop is an in-progress funding platform for public goods. We used to use @snowdriftcoop but that instance of GNU Social is dead.

Follow us here. Lots of announcements coming in the future.

social.coop

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.

If you are interested in joining our community, please review our Bylaws and Code of Conduct. If you agree with them, you may apply for membership on our instance via this link

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
