Naturally, the message that said I was having trouble posting made it
through fine. <laugh> Here's what I've been trying to post:
The net-co-op mailing list (coop at net-co-op.org) is now up.
Email coop-subscribe at net-co-op.org
or go to
Suggested topics for the new coop (koop?) list:
1) Physical co-location co-ops like http://www.communitycolo.net/ or
http://wampumpeag.net/vixie-personal-1U-colo.html - do you have a server
co-located in one? Would you like to? Are you interested in starting
something similar in your own city?
2) Virtual co-ops: We don't need no stinkin' brick and mortar. What
can we do with a distributed group of personal servers? Basic things
like secondary DNS and MX come to mind, but I think we can also look at
more advanced possibilities. Would we want to make a standardized
net-co-op looking glass script that volunteers would run? Could we
monitor each others servers? If we get enough servers on diverse
networks, could this health monitoring be extended to be a poor mans
Internet monitoring system? Would we mirror each others personal
websites? How about DNS round robins to load balance mirrored content?
Would we want to host sites for charities? Etc.
3) Personal Server Co-location. See http://www.vix.com/personalcolo/
4) Community building: Part of establishing all this will require us to
get to know each other, so basic chat is encouraged. If the chatting
becomes too much for one list, I'll create a second list and coop will
remain the operational list. Please post an introduction when you
subscribe. List archives can be viewed at
