Social.coop - 2023 Gathering of Cooperative & Democratic Instances

With the influx of new users in late 2022, questions have come up about how best to organize and operate a Mastodon instance or other platform on the fediverse. (See https://wiki.social.coop/How-to-make-the-fediverse-your-own.html)

Social.Coop is one of an unknown number of democratically owned and/or operated instances. (One list is here: https://codeberg.org/fediverse/fediparty/wiki/Collectively-owned-instances)

This Loomio subgroup is open to people and organizations who are interested in organizing an initial gathering of cooperative and democratic instances, in early 2023. For a broader discussion of this theme see this Loomio thread: https://www.loomio.com/d/GTEzPg7N/first-gathering-of-collectively-and-cooperatively-run-mastodon-instances- and this Matrix discussion: https://matrix.to/#/#democratic-fediverse:matrix.org
