In an episode years ago, I talked about "" (a network for my family and friends). That network grew to be known as "The Manor" ( and has hosted more friends over time. Not too long ago our primary infrastructure was knocked out by lightning. On today's walk, I talk a little bit about what happened.

Co-op hosting

I'd also enjoy hearing more about

The co-op style of hosting services (also discussed on episode 2411, "Co-op Paradise") is something that I find very encouraging!

Please tell us about how you built the Manor

I enjoyed your talk very much, and it has revived my project of creating this kind of resource to facilitate community with minimal dependence on The Cloud. Thank you. I hope you can manage to do a follow-up talk with details for community builders that would help us do the same and build on your experience.
