About the Sofcoop Project
We're planning to create Sofcoop -- a software users' co-op -- to empower people with better software that puts users' interests first. That includes lower prices, less annoying ads, more security and privacy. We're pushing back against toxic monetizing schemes.
A competitive market for software and info on how to use it. Our plans for growing the co-op:
- Start with sharing info on which software is better, and how to use it.
- When we have enough info here, we can all become co-op members paying about $1 a month for accessing the info.
- Members who contribute the most info can create their own "channel", organizing info and links to info.
- Members will vote to allocate funding among the channels.
- Later we expand the system to let channels provide software licenses and discounts. When this grows enough, members can vote to raise the monthly fee to perhaps $5. The goal is to provide as much useful software & info as possible with our pooled flow of funds.
