Happy (Lunar) New Year!

Happy New Year! Well sorta! ( Time just keeps slipping away!)

2017 was a year of change for Palante. We said goodbye to a co-founding worker, Joseph, started doing digital security work and welcomed several new clients to the fold! Most importantly though, and not previously stated on this blog, we welcomed two new worker-owners to the fold! Let us introduce again Kristin and Morgan!


Encrypted Backups

Inspired by recent political developments, Palante has prioritized changing the backup infrastructure that we use for ourselves and our clients to support encrypted backups. We chose BorgBackup (, and can now say we fully support encrypted backups to local usb drives and to remote ssh servers for our clients. If the usb backup drive or the remote backup server fell into the wrong hands, your files on those drives would be inaccessible to anyone without the encryption key.


Palante Tech Welcomes Morgan!

Palante is excited to welcome our newest worker, Morgan Robinson! Morgan comes to us with a background in community development and geographic information systems. She describes herself as a devoted coop nerd and will be providing Palante clients with CiviCRM support. We're grateful to be working with Morgan and look forward to seeing her collaborate with Palante's client organizations!


Palante Tech welcomes Kristin!

Palante is excited to welcome Kristin Snelling on board as our newest worker! Kristin comes to us after years of working as a web developer, designer, project manager and creative and executive director at Radical Designs, another worker-owned coop dedicated to working with nonprofits; as you might imagine, she's dived into the work and is already providing Drupal, Backdrop and CiviCRM support and development to Palante clients. We're thrilled to be working with Kristin and are excited that Palante's client organizations will benefit from her expertise and experience.
