Dear Admins at Social.Coop,
i am a communications scholar and reporter for the german investigative tech policy news outlet netzpolitik.org. I recently asked my followers on Mastodon for examples of democratically governed instances and many pointed to Social.Coop. I’d be very interested to learn how you run things over there and about your experiences with a democratic approach to platform governance.
I’d be delighted if one or more of you folks would be available for an interview next week. I thought that a written interview via chat (for example Signal or even Mastodon DMs) would be a great format for this.
Please let me know what you think and when you are available.
All the best from Berlin, Ingo

2021: For their research on moderation and information control at TikTok, Chris Köver and Markus Reuter received the special prize of the journalist prize for information technology .
(I too am new here and just thought I'd share the tidbit I came across)

If we decide to participate then sending Ingo a copy of the revised organizational mind-map would answer most questions and serve to focus any interviews in more productive directions.
First order of business is for us to decide whether we want to interact with Ingo Dachwitz or not.
Since I am very new to this realm, I feel that I shouldn't be doing more than making suggestions until I have accumulated a few months observation of how things work.
