Hi!

I use www.lovelocal.com as a search engine all the time-
They are an online database for exclusively independently-owned, sustainable/ethically-sourced small businesses. They also have farms and farmers markets!
A great resource! :slight_smile:

https://forms.id/ - Forms.id is a simple, privacy-focused alternative to tools like Google Forms and Typeform. Users no longer have to risk sharing their data with a centralized service and can ensure that the privacy of both the creator and the respondent is upheld.

This tool is decentralized p2p - The tool allows users to create simple forms and surveys that can be shared with a simple link. All responses are encrypted and only the owner of the form can decrypt and view the data.

Hi everyone!

Just came across this community and site via Kevan Lee’s monthly newsletter. I love it!

I never normally like posting about something I’ve worked on but I would love to suggest adding GoSquared Analytics to the “Analytics” section of tools – we’re an independent and profitable business based in London with a goal of building the best possible web analytics service that’s privacy focused, incredible accurate, and easy to use.

Here’s a link: https://www.gosquared.com/analytics/

I love the resource – found so many tools I hadn’t come across before here!

Hi there! How about including Kantree (www.kantree.io) under work management platformq? It was developed by a small, independent team called Digicoop (www.digicoop.io), which operates as a worker cooperative (= everyone is owner and decision-maker). Thanks for consideration!

I found this on github:

Jellyfin
Jellyfin is a Free Software Media System that puts you in control of managing and streaming your media. It is an alternative to the proprietary Emby and Plex, to provide media from a dedicated server to end-user devices via multiple apps. Jellyfin is descended from Emby’s 3.5.2 release and ported to the .NET Core framework to enable full cross-platform support.

Also this isn’t listed and it is a nice tool for time tracking at work:

I’d like to recommend a fair trade freelance website: Micro Job Market. There is totally no commission! Freelancers and buyers contact directly and pay directly. I’ve found a good customer working directly with me, very happy.

I’d like to recommend dreamwidth.org as another blogging option, as they are opensource and ad-free.

RightGift.com is a free registry platform for charitable giving. The alternative is basically Amazon. And who thinks the world needs more Amazon? RightGift is free with no strings attached. There are no hidden platform fees, upcharges on goods, or percentages taken from donations. It’s only purpose is to provide a way of making it easier for donors to contribute to the causes they care about.

Hi everyone,

I’d like to suggest shiftphone ( https://www.shiftphones.com/ ) in the “Smartphones” category.

It’s a small german family-business (could ''prove" that you don’t need to be a multi-million company to build smartphones), with 100% transparency of where the money goes (5% of it goes to support for social and sustainability projects), clear values (“We care about good working conditions, including fair wages and working hours. And of course we will not allow child labor in the production of your SHIFTPHONE. Beyond that, the conflict material coltan is not part of any device. It is also important to us to protect the environment as much as possible.”) a modular design to support and ease repair (they also provide tutorials for this) and a deposit system – so you get a certain amount of your money back, if you give back your old smartphone, so they don’t end up in trashfills.

They also provide an impact-report about their supply-chain and materials and current state of reaching their value-driven-goals (although sadly only in german: https://www.shiftphones.com/downloads/SHIFT-wirkungsbericht-2019-05-10.pdf ).

Hi, there! I’m so happy to see a resource like this taking shape on the web.

I’d like to suggest the app I created, TallyLab. It’s a data diary app that doesn’t track or sell user data. In fact, we collect zero personally identifiable information on our users!

Maybe belongs in the “Analytics” section?

Thanks again for making this site!
