Hi all, First: Bram thanks for hunting! Second: my name is Erwin Blom, I am the CEO of Stek.io, we make installing, hosting and updating open source software easy for everyone. We are fans of frictionless collaboration tool Hackpad. Write together, work together! Now Hackpad.com is nearing its end (on July 19 it will be taken down), we are proud to tell you about our commitment to this great tool: * We launch Stekpad, a free hosted Hackpad service for public collaboration. Go to http://www.stekpad.com to try. * We maintain and develop the open source hackpad/hackpad branch. Developers and other users, join us on Github to make Hackpad even better! * We built an open source tool to migrate from Hackpad.com to your own Hackpad install and published it on Github. Or we can help you get your stuff from Hackpad.com to Stekpad.com. * We introduce a paid Hackpad-service for teams on your own subdomain. We install, host and update so you can concentrate on the rest. See http://www.stek.io If you have questions, fire away! If there are ways we can make the experience better, let us know. By the way, if you want to use our migration tools, move over to http://www.stekpad.com. There you find all the information how to do it. Finally a big thank you for the team that brought the world Hackpad, they’re now doing a great job with Paper at Dropbox. Erwin Blom

@dynamicstutor Of course that what we want! So hopefully yes, but step by step! This is step 1 ;-) ! Are you an active Hackpad user? Or were you?

@dynamicstutor Right now we don't have iOS developers in our team, but the source code is available: https://github.com/hackpad/hackp...

@erwblo I was active user on hackpad and slowed down after acquisition by Dropbox. It is good that you guys are extending its life.

@erwblo It seems like I've been invited to a workspace called Hackpad by NIKOS PRODROMIDIS. Is there a way to create my own workspace? Oh, I see you have hosting for user domains.

@stoweboyd That's right. Stekpad is open and free, if people want more or else we have the hosted service at Stek.io. And Nikos is a good guy ;-) But we need to change the welcome user to Stekpad as a user. And we're still work in progress, we only recently decided to adopt Hackpad!

@erwblo So, why shouldn't we just use Paper, as it's basically Hackap, but synced with Dropbox? Only because it's a standalone solution?

@y_molodtsov Paper is a good tool too! With Stek.io we choose to make installing, hosting and updating open source software easy for everyone. That's why we started to support Hackpad next to Ghost and Discourse. For starters. More to follow. So for us, open source is important. Next to the paid Hackpad hosting service we decided to follow where Hackpad is stopping next week, with a free and public version. At the same time we will help make the open source version of Hackpad better with the input of our users.

@erwblo ok. I will think about it, but it's pricey

@stoweboyd what would be the right price point for you? We'd love to hear of course.
