You can now watch my #LibrePlanet keynote (edited w/ slides) about how firms and markets have coopted the free culture and free software movement's most powerful weapon (mass collaboration) and where that leaves us. https://mako.cc/copyrighteous/libreplanet-2018-keynote
This is a great talk by @mako if you're interested in peer-production and open source.
In my #LibrePlanet2018 keynote (https://mako.cc/copyrighteous/libreplanet-2018-keynote) I argued that online collaborative production is shifting from social to market-based arrangements. This paper explores the implications. (As is clear in the talk, part of this paper's results motivated the whole argument!)
For my birthday I would like you to donate to RiseUp - https://riseup.net/donate
We won't use it to buy ads from big corporations, but by funding projects like #SocialCoop. We offer SC members different "mini tasks" individual members and existing Social Coop working groups can do that WeCo will reward by donating to Social Coop.
Here's a link and a screenshot about the post on Loomio:
4. No full grasp of cooperative development environments and lack of
heirarchy/boss and coNtRoL. Get over naming all your files with your
"name" in it, write a README
5. No knowledge of how cooperative communities thrive and how they die.
6. No centralized discussion on what a Code of Conduct means and what it does not include and if it is needed.
1. Agreement on Code of 1. Conduct - What is it? Do we need one? Who writes
it? Who enforces it? Q's go on and on...
2. Benevolent Dictator for life status - Does absolute power corrupt?
3. Misunderstood communications written in plain text without receiver's
input from a facial expression or body language.

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]
