We are a team of developers who love writing code with and for co-operatives, SMEs, research organisations and open source communities.
We believe that development of new technologies must be rooted in community, not applied as an abstract solution to a perceived problem.
All our development stems from a base of dialogue, research and real-world experience.
We emphasise sovereignty, ecological sustainability, privacy and accountability as design principles. All our projects embody these values through the infrastructure we choose, the way we model our data and the way we share information.
Drawing from a wealth of exprience in applied permaculture design, group facilitation and community building, our design and development practices apply a diverse set of interactive techniques to tailor applications and infrastructure to suit the needs of our clients.
We prioritise the use of reliable, open source, peer reviewed technologies to ensure high quality delivery.
Dat is a new protocol for distributed file sharing. This cloudless file storage solution allows peer-to-peer sharing over a local area network, bluetooth or an internet connection.
We provide state of the art secure application deployment solutions combining the latest technology and development practices with co-operative or member-led cloud service providers, or we'll help you host your applications on your own servers. This gives you the knowledge that the data you have custody of in your hands or the hands of people you trust.
Our team runs internet privacy, password management and introduction to cryptography workshops.
Our current workshops are exploring the reception and uses of the new distributed peer-to-peer (p2p) technology Scuttlebutt building dialogue within the community, co-discovering the difficulties involved in private key management and exploring possible solutions such as social secret sharing.
