Kybern is a website which helps communities explore new, non-hierarchical forms of governance and manage their resources in collaborative ways.
Most websites assume a hierarchical model of user governance. Each person's posts, comments, content are theirs and theirs alone, to do with as they please. This works out ok some of the time, but what about communities that don't want a single all-powerful leader? What about when consensus is important, or when community buy-in is necessary? When systemic problems arise, like the spread of misinformation or harrassment?
We're trying something different - a platform where governance is customizable. Ready to get started?
Kybern is currently in early alpha, which means we cannot promise anything with regard to your data. Please do not assume that it will be kept private or that the data will not disappear suddenly. Instead, treat this site like a playground, and poke around the features. Let us know if you run into any problems, or if you have feature suggestions. Thank you so much for your patience!
