Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is ‘Domain of One’s Own’, (DoOO)?
Answer: A ed-tech hosting co-op that evolved into a national college program / learning project used by numerous universities and institutions.
The aim of (DoOO) was to facilitate students learning about and managing their own digital identity and online data.
The program started as a university hosted website account where registered students could have dominion over their own webspace. The college bought a reseller webhosting account and gave their students a free Cpanel account.
So they could learn the ins & outs of cyberspace by creating and designing their own website online and manage the mechanics under the hood.
Q: What is Co-Housing?
Answered from The Cohousing Association of the United States’s website, www.cohousing.org
“Cohousing is an intentional community of private homes clustered around shared space. Each attached or single family home has traditional amenities, including a private kitchen.
Shared spaces typically feature a common house, which may include a large kitchen and dining area, laundry, and recreational spaces. Shared outdoor space may include parking, walkways, open space, and gardens. Neighbors also share resources like tools and lawnmowers.
Households have independent incomes and private lives, but neighbors collaboratively plan and manage community activities and shared spaces.
The legal structure is typically an HOA, Condo Association, or Housing Cooperative. Community activities feature regularly-scheduled shared meals, meetings, and workdays.
Neighbors gather for parties, games, movies, or other events. Cohousing makes it easy to form clubs, organize child and elder care, and carpool.”
