I laughed more than I should have...
"The sleep researcher from Northwestern University in Chicago, said: "Night owls trying to live in a morning lark world may have health consequences for their bodies."
Night owls occur naturally, capitalism does not. Fuck schedules, fuck 9-5, fuck the "one size fits all" mentality of this sociopathic system!
"The potential to deliver “one shot cures” is one of the most attractive aspects of gene therapy, genetically engineered cell therapy, and gene editing. (...) While this proposition carries tremendous value for patients and society, it could represent a challenge for genome medicine developers looking for sustained cash flow."
Do you really need further proof that capitalism is a severe form of sociopathic disease?

The co-operative values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity could easily have been used to write the #introduction to the future many envisioned when the World Wide Web went live. Although today we are far removed from this vision, projects like #SocialCoop and the #IndieWeb offer us a way back to an open, people-focused web. I am pleased to be involved.
Happy one year anniversary to #socialcoop! Big thanks to all those who made the original Medium article happen (https://medium.com/open-collective/social-coop-a-cooperative-decentralized-social-network-c10980c9ed91) that brought a lot of people to this instance. Proud of what we're building together. :)
I think #platformcoops are a great way to bring democracy back to the internet, while providing the structure that's needed to be sustainable.
Also, I love the way that social.coop lets me know about coop things all over the world.
Here's to another great year!

Like, OK, with Facebook check-ins and news livetweeting, we've seen how social media has become a kind of public utility. Except it's not public. And what with many countries' governments and police, it probably *shouldn't* be publicly owned. But it should be *controlled by the people who use it*. Hence the co-op model.
Obviously the co-op model is just one of many possible ways of running your own social media, but it's one I personally like~
Of course I got it eventually, but I felt I could have gotten it sooner. I'm a very story/example-oriented learner. One goal in writing the ActivityPub overview was to give a story that hopefully made it easier for people to follow it: https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/#Overview
Open Source, Videogames, Philosophy, Cooperatives, P2P, History, Sci-Fi, RPGs, Socialism, Memes, Anarchy. Not necessarily in that order.
social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
