If I ate your pet, what consolation would you find in my claim: "Oh, but they were delicious!"?

Has anyone worked in or with organizations that are sharing data with one another? Heard about best practices or academic studies on the matter?

I want to start asking everyone in my neighborhood Qs like what do they want in it, is their landlord parasitic scum, what are their skills or what they like to do and do they get to do it, what are their needs?

But i haven't found an organization to do that with, and all that meaningful individual and community data shouldn't be in one organization!

I just learned about greenhost.net/

They seem rad!

here are their values:

🌱 sustainable tech choices
🌐 internet freedom
🔒 data privacy
💻 state of the art infrastructure

anyone have experience with them

In mildly-stale news, I just noticed that a RiseUp fiscal partner was Raided by police (posted on RiseUp on July 4, but the raid was on June 20). riseup.net/en/about-us/press/z If you are have donated to RiseUp via their European IBAN mechanism, RiseUp says there's a good chance the German police now have full records of the transaction.

Feeling high on life...once again...for the moment, at least. Whether it lasts or not, doesn't much matter, only that I enjoy it while it does.

The payment interface is a little wonky IMHO, but some careful looking around will get you there. The most useful screen is subscriptions (select from menu at top right), once you have made a contribution. If you elect to change your subscription, do it there, else you may end up with two active, as I did. Whoops (it's easy to fix)! @SocialCoop

You cannot really have an animal farm in the city.
But you can grow your own crops anywhere, even on your windowsill.

Finished Elinor Ostrom's Rules of Radicals for the and felt a bit frustrated with lack of concrete examples... A nice compliment is "Sharing Cities: Activating the Urban Commons" where you can see how these fundamentals of commons governance have played out in different cities: shareable.net/sharing-cities
Thanks @keiko for the extra push to open it up again!

@eloquence great to see you are considering a for lib.reviews! Best of luck getting that going. I'm currently working on the same with a Drupal-based hosting project (different sort of thing than Aegir).

What?! This has been around since 2015? It's just too easy to miss so much. Sigh. Anyway, yeah: liberapay.com/ Looks like a winner to me. Any comments/existing users?
