As some of you may remember, the Startin’blox cooperative, spinoff from the Happy Dev network, both of which I am a cofounder, has been developing an open-source and federated tool to interconnect communities together. The idea is to benefit from a strong network effect, ie. more events, more workers, more projects and more ideas at the end of our fingertips, without having to centralize data and therefore power, on a unique platform.
We name this open-source tool Hubl: https://invis.io/VEWRR0679ZA
Our vision is that each organization could have its own dedicated tool, and yet interconnect with all the others. We think of Hubl as a modular skeleton, akin to Wordpress, each organization can configure and tweak to its own needs without losing contact with the rest of the world.
Hubl’s MVP is now ready. We need another two weeks to clear the remaining bugs, and I’d love to engage with you again to see if CoTech is still animated by it.
If so, then I’d be happy to setup an instance for you guys to try it out, and see together what could be a cool next step to interconnect CoTech’s cooperatives with Happy Dev, FACTTIC, and hopefully much more.
I hope this is appropriate.
Do not hesitate to point me elsewhere if you believe I’m not in the right place.
Happy to discuss it further.
Have a good day guys!
Thanks for sharing @alexbourlier, if you are still working on clearing the bugs before you can set up an instance perhaps we could discuss it next month? It might turn out challenging for CoTech members to establish a view before there is a chance to test the system (I appreciate you shared the link). Is there an md/pdf file outlining all the features of Hubl as it stands? Would you be able to drop in to the call on Wednesday? We could then add Hubl to the agenda…
Just added Fund 2020 to growing list of items on our agenda list!
