This is the first time I've ever heard of the concept of a server cooperative. What a superb idea! A very pragmatic compromise between self-hosting and going with a corporate service.

I would listen to an entire week of shows discussing different aspects of this arrangement. Well done!

Well done!

This was a fun episode because of the enthusiasm of the presenters. Some intriguing ideas.

Would you be willing to provide dns secondary or backup email services? I run my own dns server and email server, but it is a challenge to find the secondaries to make my services a bit more robust. I don't really want close friends to do this, I'd like it to be cast a little wider. It is even hard to convince the isps to do it, sadly. But it is hard to find like-minded people ... you guys sound about right : -) And if you like, I can secondary for you as well.

Tell me how

Do a show on how to set it up on something like a raspberry pi and I'm happy to join a pool.

Alternate web server.

Nginx is a great alternative to apache web server.
