+  <p>Welcome to LURK, we host, facilitate and archive discussions around net- and computational culture and politics, proto- and post-free culture practices, (experimental) (sound) (new media) (software) art, and things like that…</p>
+  <p>We’re <a href="#pls-send-halp">volunteer run</a> and wish to:</p>
+  <ul>
+    <li>give the opportunity for indidividuals, groups and collectives working on net- and computational culture to have a presence outside of corporate silos, surveillance capitalism and closed facebook groups;</li>
+    <li>offer a place where discussions and resources on self-hosting and alternative network infrastructures can exist outside of libertarian and pepe discourses;</li>
+    <li>provide ourselves with something high-quality to procrastinate with, share good memes and eat pop-corn;</li>
+    <li>etc.</li>
+  </ul>
+  <h2 id="services">Services</h2>
+  <p>LURK provides a few community services composed of mailinglists, chat and access to the Fediverse. In addition to offering these platforms, we try to document how they are set up on <a href="#wiki">a wiki</a>.</p>
+  <h3 id="mailinglists">Mailinglists</h3>
+  <p>Over at <a href="https://we.lurk.org">we.lurk.org</a> we host several mailing lists using <code>mailman 3</code> and <code>hyperkitty</code>. These are available both via your mail-client as well as your web browser.</p>
+  <h3 id="chat">Chat</h3>
+  <p>On <em>lurk.org</em> we host a server for federated instant messaging and chat. It is based on <a href="https://homebrewserver.club/have-you-considered-the-alternative.html#xmpp-the-federated-messaging-protocol">XMPP</a> and uses <a href="https://prosody.im/">Prosody</a> as a server which is <a href="https://homebrewserver.club/configuring-a-modern-xmpp-server.html">configured to support modern E2E encryption and mobile use</a>.</p>
+  <p><a href='https://compliance.conversations.im/server/lurk.org'><img src='https://compliance.conversations.im/badge/lurk.org'></a></p>
+  <h3 id="fediverse-access">Fediverse access</h3>
+  <p>We provide access to the Fediverse, a communities-run social media network, through a <a href="https://joinmastodon.com">Mastodon</a> instance: <a href="https://post.lurk.org">post.lurk.org</a></p>
+  <h3 id="wiki">Wiki</h3>
+  <p>We maintain the <em>Run Your Own</em> wiki, where we try to document how we run LURK and some of our machines, so that we can inspire others to do it as well, and avoid the situation where LURK becomes itself a silo. The wiki is also used by our friends at the <a href="https://homebrewserver.club">homebrewserver.club</a> for dumping ideas, useful links, HOWTOs, and configs for DIY and DIWO self-hosted services: <a href="https://things.bleu255.com/runyourown/">things.bleu255.com/runyourown</a></p>
+  <h2 id="access">Access</h2>
+  <p>If you would like to have a mailing listed hosted by LURK, or have an account on our Mastodon instance, please drop us <a href="#contact">an email</a> and tell us a bit about you and your project(s). Joining LURK means you are in accordance with our <a href="#our-communities">CoC, TOS, and Privacy Statement</a>.</p>
+  <h2 id="lurk-infra">LURK infra</h2>
+  <p>We currently use three machines:</p>
+  <ul>
+    <li><em>agnesbaxter</em> is a VPS provided by our friends at <a href="https://servus.at">servus.at</a></li>
+    <li><em>douglas</em> is a VPS hosted on scaleway.com and costs $$$ a month.</li>
+    <li><em>skattkista</em> is our backup machine which is a repurposed nettop running in a university somewhere.</li>
+  </ul>
+  <h2 id="our-communities">Our Communities</h2>
+  <p>LURK is used by several communities coming from a variety of cultural, ethnic and professional backgrounds. We strive for LURK to be welcoming to people of these various backgrounds and provide a non-toxic and harrassement-free enviroment. To that extent we’re in the process of writing a Code of Conduct, Terms of Services and Privacy Statement, and have moderators on different platforms.</p>
+  <h2 id="pls-send-halp">Pls send halp</h2>
+  <p>Big tech and an abusive misunderstanding of free and open source software practices have led us to believe that software production, server maintenance and online services should be free as in gratis. However there is no such things as a free lunch and software does not exist in a vacuum. If we want sustainable alternatives and a diverse culural sector, these alternatives and the humans behind them, need to be supported. If LURK is useful to you, and if you can afford it, please help us by donating.</p>
