 Like any community birth, it involves several learnings from mistakes, frictions, disappointments, successes, actions, visions, boredom, slumps, reemergence, etc.... all amount to continual peer learning and community evolution from humble DIY user club to a movement and society that has a critical view of the society and its interaction with technology of today, past and the future. Like any community birth, it involves several learnings from mistakes, frictions, disappointments, successes, actions, visions, boredom, slumps, reemergence, etc.... all amount to continual peer learning and community evolution from humble DIY user club to a movement and society that has a critical view of the society and its interaction with technology of today, past and the future.

-Community constantly keeps experimenting with the necessary digital, social infrastructure to maintain and engage with the publics, through social networks, etc...

Organizing and maintaining the services is itself a hard but fun and interesting work, and have always been volunteered, learned from existing maintainers, with periods of expertise gaining and transition to younger members. So to keep technological determinism in the bay, a movement must always learn to govern, control and regulate the emergent nature of technology. It is very easy to fall prey for the technological romanticization. However, reaching checks and balances between the social nature/practice (social relationships) of the community and its technological dependency indicates and marks the experience and maturity and thus be a practical example for the public to observer and learn from the movement how the balance is kept in balance continuously. On that line of thinking, the community must even stop thinking within **"Self" Hosted** solutions and start thinking beyond the neo-liberal way of hosting solutions and services. Why ? During the initial awareness about the toxic nature of technology and technocracy, a individual will be attracted towards individual-self hosting practice, which is in a way offers learning, but stops when it comes to regulation, maintenance, accountability and reliability, and burn outs. This where network of people, relationships, responsibilities, commitment towards political thinking, etc... helps greatly. Thus we have to see spinning the following services as a **"Community Hosting"** Solutions. It is a collective labour and effort that goes into building, integrating, cementing the whole infrastructure.

-In addition to educating awareness of necessity of Scientifically developed technology for educational institutions, research institutions, individual and family uses, community always engages with other pro-people civil societies and sister/peer communities from nearby states for a common cause that requires social action.+In addition to educating awareness of necessity of Scientifically developed technology for educational institutions, research institutions, individual and family uses, community always engages with other "pro-commons" civil societies and sister/peer communities locally and from nearby states for a common cause that requires critical social action. To contribute properly as a collective a critical understanding of society and its interrelationship with technology is necessary. Social Actions engages the whole community as a way to respond critically towards a social issue.
