Oh dear, it looks like #opencollective has taken some #VC $$. Any insights, @ntnsndr? https://medium.com/open-collective/june-2017-investors-update-24883a828c96
We've started a discussion thread where we want to hear, which one you'd lean towards, and weighing pros and cons of the two services.
@stefanieschulte the co-op water cooler article covers a bit, but right now we are operating as a collective governed on #Loomio with finances run through #OpenCollective while we work on our bylaws, code of conduct, etc. The Loomio group is publicly visible, if you'd like to browse for your research https://www.loomio.org/g/ibncxoDR/social-coop
One those are finalized, we'll likely formally incorporate, though are still weighing where to do so, since our membership is global...
@drcable I think there's a document in the co-op's Loomio group that's being workshopped right now, but we're very much building the plane on the runway in terms of how governance, etc. works. @mayel is admining, and members have been signing up to pay $1-10/mo (sliding scale) to our #OpenCollective to cover instance expenses.
"Our members co-own and co-govern an instance of Mastodon, a popular federated social network similar to Twitter. This way, we're able to keep control over our social data through a trusted co-op while interacting with the big, scary, wider world.
To become an account-holding member, contribute at least $1 per month as a "backer." We recommend contributing what you can on a sliding scale between $1 and $10 per month."
