Our Common Cloud is a federated instance of the Zap social network platform. It is a self-hosted, user-maintained, user-governed community dedicated to ethos-based, deliberate, meaningul participation and engagement by every member. No ads, no algorithms, no lurking and no "drive-by" community. We aim to keep membership small enough that each member can get to know everyone else but, because it is federated, members of this community will be able connect to -- follow and be followed by -- members of other Zap instances around the world. If you register here we'll want to communicate with you before your membership is approved.
