We are pleased to announce that Acter and Effektio are merging. Late last year the teams of Effektio and Acter came together and decided to join their efforts in working on the decentralised community organzing app of the future. Based on the technology stack of the Effektio App combined with the long history of user-centric design from Acter we are embarking on building the third generation of Acter ("a3"): a mobile-first matrix.org-backed decentralised community organizing app.
We are still in process of merging the team and figuring out all the details, a few things are clear to us:
We are intending to release an App on the AppStores some point later this year
We will continue to build the app in the open, publicly accessible via Github
The project will be run by the non-profit Acter Association (located in Denmark), which will also continue to hold all the assets, with an initial executive board comprising of the leaders from both previous entities
We will continue to focus on creating the future for bottom-up grassroots organizing tooling
With that, we want to keep it short and real. Just quickly let you know. More information will follow.
If that's not enough for you, here you can read a generic merger-blog post, that Chat GPT created for your entertainment. We recommend to play a round of bullshit bingo with it.
