Hi Viet and Ben,
Just to let you know that in France/Europe there exists an opensource project for mountain activities: https://www.camptocamp.org/ It is run by a french based non profit association.
It is available in 8 languages, and uses the CC licences. The code is available on github: https://github.com/c2corg and everyone is welcome to improve both the database and the functions of the website.
I believe there is a potential for good collaboration across the atlantic, feel free to contact email@example.com to start the discussion !
Hi. Getting caught up on the Open Beta mission. I see you have an Open Collective organization set up. Have you heard of DAOs? Seems similar to what open collective is going for but utilizing open source Web 3.0/crypto. There are some really cool communities popping up using this sort of structure. Most of these communities are focused on developing more web 3 tech, but there’s no reason it couldn’t be utilized to organize and align the community to work on an open source alternative to mountain project. Let me know if this sounds interesting to you!
