  • Open Source alternatives to Trello Hangout etc (Percloud??)

  • Communication and internal communication mailing lists integrated in the web group/forum




Discussion (4)

  1. > Open Source alternatives to Trello Hangout etc (Percloud??)

    big blue button is free software for video conference 🙂

    i’ll ask if there’s an open server we can try

  2. Suzanne helped design the C-Realm podcast website, but it's Lisha Sterling who's maintining it. Lisha's a great writer and podcaster herself, so we're encouraging her to contribute to the P2P blog and she's also a master-hacka!
