This is OT, but @doug I found it really interesting to read the discussion in the pad you linked. I'm currently the IT director for the Foundation for Intentional Community (https://ic.org) and also involved with the Global Ecovillage Network (https://ecovillage.org). It was largely through dealing with these orgs, both of whom manage directories and maps of communities, that I became acutely interested in something like murmurations.
I find it intriguing that this discussion among Kanthaus folks goes in such similar directions to the background for murmurations (including this lovely line: "most people don’t have fine control of their stack, rather some horrible Wordpress setup...")
I'm curious how or if we can start linking murmurations data with established directories of collectives, perhaps starting where tech and communitarian interests overlap (which is a big interest of mine as well).
