Zine Tech

Collaboration

  • Cryptpad - free, open source, data secure alternative to Google Drive. Available in China!
  • Dropbox
  • Element - free version, open source, data secure alternative to Slack
  • Etherpad - free, open source application that you can set to disappear after a certain date
  • Google Drive - did you know you can change the dimensions on Google slides? Try 5.5" wide by 8.5" high if you're in the US or 148.5mm x 210mm where A4 is the standard paper size. 
  • Slack
