Ethical Consumer magazine - https://www.ethicalconsumer.org/ (site developed by CoTech member Agile) - is planning a piece on video conferencing. Ethical Consumer has a wide readership and many web visitors.
In its reviews Ethical Consumer does a forensic job on ownership and supply chain. Here too, although it’s a bit harder than reviewing - say - laptops because the market is so fluid at the moment. It’s also a chance to raise some interesting issues about privacy as well.
I have already signalled the existence of https://collocall.de/index.html and https://meet.collective.tools/ but it would be great if we could have a more comprehensive response from CoTech - we’ll get a mention!
Not counting these, here’s the list they have so far:
Savoir-faire Linux, Jami
Kopano, Kopano Meet
Nextcloud, Nextcloud Talk
CarrierX, Free Conferencing Corporation, freeconferencecall.com
Video Communication Services AS, Whereby
Blue Jeans Network, Inc…, BlueJeans
Lifesize, Inc, Lifesize
CyberLink Corp., CyberLink U
Cisco, Cisco webex
Epic Games, Houseparty
Amazon, Amazon Chime
Facebook, Facebook messenger
Slack Technologies, Inc., Slack
a) What to add to this list? GreenNet, Webarchitects, Hypha? Ready for that?
b) Any comments on the list?
