Are there any co-op decentralized server hosting groups?
Like Disroot, where they host a bunch of neat software (Nextcloud, encrypted notes, storage maybe), but in a cooperative environment with a limited number of people?
I'm kind of imagining each member paying certain monthly dues, and having voting/etc to determine who is actually running the server (and where).
This is an idea that I'm working on with a few friends but our total budget is like $10/month or $300 upfront, so the best ""server"" we can get is an ODroid and a 10TB hard drive.
@njha Check out social.coop, they are a cooperative running a Mastodon server the way you're describing.
@njha there's the solarpunk coop. Maybe that's what you want?
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
