A co-operative social network

I'm very interested in co-operatives; I think it's a better way of doing business than the traditional shareholder owned corporation.

I'd like to set up a co-operative social network. It would be member owned and run.

To do this I need

  • at least 3 other people (preferably in the UK) to register a co-op
  • £40 to register the co-op
  • £80 to buy socialnetwork.coop
  • $5 a month for the hosting

Happy to stump up the cash if there are others who are interested.

I would expect co-op members to pay a small fee (a couple of $ probably) towards the maintenance of the site and in return they wouldn't get advertised at. That said I'd look for sponsorhip/advertising from other co-ops.


Anyone interested?
