We have a new name

Hello friends! It’s 2017, and some time has passed since I last updated this site. We’re still scheming and building, despite going quiet for a little while. You may notice we have a new name and URL. The project started its life as “smalldata.coop,” a new platform cooperative for becoming less dependent on surveillance-supported cloud services. Things took a bit longer than expected to get started, and we realized we couldn’t call ourselves a cooperative until we got legit with bylaws and articles of incorporation.

We are now called Smol Data (smoldata.org). The change is partly to be more search-friendly, and to differentiate ourselves from other things called “Small Data,” especially from our friends over at Small Data Industries. In the coming weeks we may start calling ourselves Smol Data Cooperative, but for now just know that it’s still happening!
