General question for social.coop -- how should we make decisions about which tools to use?
For example, in the CWG, I created an #etherpad doc on #Disroot and then asked people working on that doc to use it.
When it came to switching to #gitlab on #webarchitects, we discussed it at length.
In a recent phone chat one person suggested google hangouts and others suggested Zoom and we agreed to use the latter.
Do we need some protocol or etiquette on this?
@Matt_NoyesI'd personally go for a list of "desired traits" like for instance:
1. Open source2. Federated3. Accessible4. Cross platotrm Etc...
If two comparable services are proposed, the one checking more boxes in the list is selected.
@Antanicus @Matt_Noyes 👍 Probably need to add Usability
@mayel @Matt_Noyes @Antanicus These are good suggestions. I think we should keep our community free from Google and their ilk wherever possible.
@Antanicus @Matt_Noyes a great opportunity for a tech policy, which is essentially what @Antanicus is suggesting. Here's the IWOC policy as an example incarceratedworkers.org/tech-policy
@claytonYes please. I'd love to explore this topic further
This is good. I like the dashboard of invest/divest! Sort of like the platform capitalism footprint idea I had.
@Matt_NoyesCool! I'll move this to the tech WG so we don't lose track of it
