Future home of our.net, a cooperative internet something provider.
I haven't figured out what the something is going to be, but it
will at least be a place to host virtual domains, as well as just plain email accounts.
The basic premise of a cooperative company is that the clients are the owners, and that costs
are shared based on usage.
Some of the ideas that I hope to include into our.net are:
The total number of users will be limited, and can only be increased by a vote of the current
System resources (disk, memory, bandwidth, etc) will be controlled by the membership.
Fees can only be increased by a vote of the members.
Membership will only be available to people who are sponsored by already existing members.
Support of new members will be the responsibility of the sponsors.
No explicit bandwidth or usage limitations, but completely open logging.
I hope this will allow people to use what they need, as well as be able to find out who might
be abusing the system.
