The making of the CommonsCloud - technical choices


how did we get here and where are we heading

We discuss how we formed the CommonsCloud project and what key technical decisions we have made so far to set in motion this cooperative cloud platform.

We've recently started a crowdfunding campaign at the Goteo platform, many people are asking how did we start to develop this project. Let's take a dive into where we come from, which free software building blocks we have chosen so far and how they come together. Then we share some ideas for the near future.

CommonsCloud in action!!

Since long that we wanted to start an alternative to the dominant proprietary web platforms, and today FemProcomuns (of which FKI is a founding member) is opening a campaign at the Goteo crowdfunding platform to put into action the CommonsCloud and involve, share and call for support from all people and collectives that share concern for privacy and collective self-organisation of online platforms.
