You solve that with open federated protocols tying many small solutions and providers together.

@cj That's brilliant! I've been thinking about the need for something along those lines and really like your approach! Good look and let us know how/when we can help.

Good question @bhaugen

It seems most haven't figured out that they have different kind of members let alone how to fairly share value among them:

- core value proposition workers (eg bike delivery bikers)
- beneficiaries / partners (eg local shops)
- patrons (eg clients)
- initiators / creators (eg innovation / design/ development)
- support workers (eg systems maintenance / community facilitation / tech support)
- promoters (eg member outreach / partnerships with other co-ops)
- (and maybe others, depending on each case)

As for me, I don't usually *expect* up-front compensation as an initiator, because:
1) there's often no budget for it, outside of capitalism
2) it often feels like play, at least when it's new

But I do need to eat so I often do lots of support work as well, and do expect compensation when I'm expected to act like a 24/7 on-call janitor. The stress alone...

1. Sure!

2. Would love to, but depends if nearby or if someone covers the costs

I wish the co-op had organized a lot earlier to compensate for the huge amount of labor that went into its early days.
For my part, being broke at the time, I could really have used the support in order to avoid burn-out, but if you ever want to make a gesture I'd now happily accept a donation to my local hacklab instead.

Federation isn't ready because the project was heavily refactored since forking, but we definitely need to get it working so MoodleNet can launch publicly with multiple instances!

@aran blaming the users or the extractive capitalists doing better marketing than the decentralised open source approaches?

You can package things into a binary with Elixir as well: https://hexdocs.pm/distillery/introduction/understanding_releases.html

Though we'll probably need to implement the Mastodon REST API in the refactored CommonsPub for it to be compatible with such client apps. Long term of course, there will be clients implementing our GraphQL client API.

@dgold

As a UI? Mostly the Mastalab app

Because my personal pub (instance) is kinda hacked together until I upgrade to the new http://CommonsPub.org
