@wakest Is anyone hosting other instances of it though, or are they ready to faciliate that?
@mayel they said no one has yet attempted to but they would be happy if someone did. They also seemed to be totally down for federation / #ActivityPub and sounded like if someone wanted to work on that and submit a patch they would be all for it! (though they said they don't have the resources currently to work on it themselves)
@wakest That's great to hear!
I had assumed that they fell in the category of platforms or SaaS that are "open source" but don't actually want people to roll their own, which comes across in lack of code and deployment documentation. But sometimes it's just lack of time I'm sure...
@mayel they expressed being overextended. the company is 4 people...
Not that I know of. Alanna published a piece a while back for their blog, but don't think she signed up: https://medium.com/open-collective/social-coop-a-cooperative-decentralized-social-network-c10980c9ed91
@wakest Did you invite them to join?
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
