2Gather is a vision, a set of principles and a concrete project. It is an open source, decentralized, not-for-profit alternative currently under development. We welcome donors, developers and contributors of all types.
A short summary of the 2Gather vision was included in the Nesta Innovation Foundation's Decentralized Futures essay collection.
