On a personal note, it’s been a long, busy, and intense few months working on this amongst other media projects, from the east to the west coast of Australia and onward to Los Angeles (and now en route to Colombia!). Software development is quite the beast, I’m learning, and the funny bit is that what you see before you is still far from fully-functional! There is a long road ahead to enact this vision of cooperative social networking on a global scale.
While I’m not myself doing the dirtiest of the work (shout-out to our dev and newest team member, Kusan), I find myself learning quite a bit: from in-depth CSS style designing to Git code management, to overall project management. I’d like to acknowledge that learning new skills, working with new people, and creating excellent results from that act of co-creation is the intention of this entire platform–so I’m pretty stoked that I get to be the guinea pig for the magic it will work on the world.
So that’s it for now (back to work for me!)–a reminder: while this co-operative social network is currently capable of receiving your submissions to add to the community-building network, and even your video uploads for our network editors to digitally piece together, it’s still far from optimized from mobile–so please check it out on your computer or laptop for now while we work to make it functional on a smartphone.
More updates to come soon. Please check out the platform, make an account and mess around a bit, and let us know what you think!
