Welcome to the Dark Peak Data Co-operative!

Dark Peak is a user-run co-operative providing hosted open-source software for the benefit of our members.

Free services such as Facebook, Twitter, and GMail make money by collecting data about their users and either selling it directly, or selling the influence that gives them.

We each want better control over what we share and how our data is used, so we founded an organisation democratically run and owned by its users. By sharing resources and expertise, our volunteers aim to provide convenient alternatives that put you back in control.

Join

If you're interested in Joining the Co-operative come chat with us in #darkpeak on Freenode IRC or sign up to our mailing list.

Services

We currently provide our members with:

Our Services Roadmap contains a full list of services currently planned and in development and the Task Tracker shows what we're working on right now. If you'd like to help make more of them a reality, you are encouraged to help in Developing Services.

Organisation

We hold Co-Op days on the second Saturday of the month. At these we help members set up and use our services, develop and deploy new ones and discuss how to run the co-op. Once a year we hold an AMG to agree our Budget and organize ourselves.

The co-op is lightly managed by the Board in accordance with the Articles of the Co-Op.
