August was a huge month for #ZincCoop! We:
1. Further refined our path to a 1.0 for #Convene
2. Tripled our video infrastructure capacity,
3. Began offering free, semi-public, high-touch tech skills education that grants the a pathway to ownership.
4. Prepared #ShakeItPhoto for an iOS 14 release!
You can read more of the details here: https://opencollective.com/zinc-community/updates/august-2020-update
If you have excess $$$ to toss towards sustainable, maintainer-and-user-owned digital products and services; please consider sponsoring our OpenCollective: https://opencollective.com/zinc-community#section-goals
All of us together, doing a little bit, can change everything.
Oh, I should add the following additional skill gaps we are currently feeling:
1. Technical writing.
2. Product marketing and Communications.
3. Web site management.
Even a few hours a month provides a huge benefit to the coop. We expect it to take ~8 hours over ~4 weeks to build enough context to begin contributing, so don't hesitate to ask questions (either here or via email; firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
