Here's what "came out":
1. Zinc is a small group working to accelerate the mutual-benefit and mutual-aid economy.
2. New contributors are welcome, and we have a bi-weekly test-automation co-learning circle and a weekly dev group coding session.
3. We are focusing on "owning the means of connection" by assembling a "Wordpress for the mutual-benefit and social web." A core that provides A/V, Payments, Identity, etc. and can be tailored to fit particular mutual-benefit orgs needs.
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.
