The Hexbear Collective is a group of leftist software developers building Hexbear.net, an independent space for solidarity and true democratization on the internet. Hexbear is a leftist social platform centered around community building through discussion, posting memes, and sharing content.

Hexbear.net runs on Hexbear, our custom-developed fork of Lemmy, an open-source link aggregator. We are actively building new features and improvements in response to user feedback.

Our goal is to demonstrate that community-funded and worker-owned technology can scale and maintain itself. We have created a platform that isn't powered by selling ourselves and our community to advertisers.

Donations go towards active hosting costs and also building up a runway so we can afford to add better infrastructure and stability. If the support is there, we also really want to formally create a worker-owned tech cooperative so some members of the team can do this full time.
