hey #fediverse, I'm looking to create a collection of social sustainable VPS providers
- green energy
- worker owned
- organic growth
- NO hyperscale
please send me more!
Such lists are needed! Would you consider maintaining it as a curated sub-list of the #delightful project?
You can provide it from any forge. I was also considering adding something similar to awesome-humane-tech, but I might also just cross-ref to a good link from the Related Awesomeness section.
If it is a good awesome list I can link to it from awesome-humane-tech. But I have no appropriate #delightful list to link from.
The delightful project has 'stricter' rules than awesome project on GH in that only #foss #OpenScience and #OpenData resources are allowed. OTOH less strict is that the list does not have to reside on Github.
Here's the top-level awesome list (with the additional downside that it is ad-sponsored): https://github.com/sindresorhus/awesome
Yeah, but in some cases in delightful there can be an exception. There's already one curated sublist delightful-funding, where I allow this.
The argument here is that funding is the Achilles Heel of most #foss projects, and they should have a broad range of options to choose from, weigh the pros and cons for themself. (I'll probably feature the best resources more prominently)
Something similar might apply to you, should you make it a #delightful list.
@jonatasbaldin thanks to you too. It is always nice to see people spending time on projects like yours. And having you on the Fediverse 🤗
@jonatasbaldin hey, great list you have already. Very nice!
I have merged on Awesome #HumaneTech .. https://github.com/humanetech-community/awesome-humane-tech#related-awesomeness
The #delightful PR is more involved. I think it can be a delighful list given the criteria for inclusion you documented. But then it needs to comply to the Delightul format.
This would mean renaming the repo to delightful-sustainable-vps among others.
Note: 'delightful' as name was deliberately chosen, as it expresses more than just 'awesome' (e.g. useful, needed).
@humanetech @yarmo @jonatasbaldin maybe Delightful Databases: https://codeberg.org/yarmo/delightful-databases/src/branch/main/README.md
@yarmo wait for a surprising number of new entries.. I had more of them piled up in browser tabs than I remembered :D
I have added an issue suggesting a slightly larger scope for the list, so that it can also hold providers that host free software packages, if you are open to doing so..
@jonatasbaldin I don't think eclipse is commercial. If you are looking for commercial hosters, I cannot help you i'm afraid.
we're not great about the green energy aspect yet, but we are slowly working on it.
This post is a good nudge for me to pick up on the research threads I was following before.
@jonatasbaldin @firstname.lastname@example.org Not sure which of these criteria Tranquility fits, but maybe most?
@jonatasbaldin https://tilaa.com runs 100% on renewable energy (https://www.tilaa.com/en/blog/tilaa-being-green), don't seem to chase hyper-scale (they only have two DCs), uses KVM (https://support.tilaa.com/hc/en-us/articles/228650867-Which-virtualization-solution-does-Tilaa-use-) but the rest of the tooling is apparently proprietary. Not sure about their ownership model either.
(Been using their VPSes for 9 years, but I'm not otherwise affiliated.)
@minoru I hear you. It seems business-as-usual, but a good alternative to the main providers. Thanks!
I agree, I'll actually shoot them an email raising this discussion, see what they think about it.
BTW, I've read before about crypto just fucking up our planet and I agree. I was wondering: is there any *actual good social outcome* from cryptocurrency? i.e a specific coin that doesn't lead to massive networks or something similar?
I don't know that much on the subject :(
@boringcactus just logged into their platform and didn't find the crypto option, although it is describe on the main
