A few years ago I visited this Japanese that provides employment support for disabled persons. Unlike organizations that aim to "prepare" people to work in typical capitalist companies, they emphasize developing cooperative work that is fulfilling and humane.

@GuerillaOntologist Does anyone know of US examples of hybrid worker/consumer coops? Eroski, in Spain, is largely organized this way with consumer members and worker members sharing governance 50/50...

FOSS developers: My right to create a crappy ass icon in my pixel app trumps your right to have an aesthetically consistent experience.

Regular folks: Ooh, look at macOS! 😍

FOSS developers: why no one use our operating system?

More new arrivals. Onyx had two kids this afternoon sometime.

Individual mags wouldn’t change their practices at all. They can (and should) also continue to do what they’ve always done on their own platforms. But this is an added benefit and a culture building tool. Even a little of this applied could be useful.

What goes into the library would depend on (1)How many copies individual mags donate AND (2) how many copies are bought (at a discount) by community members for other community members. We’d collectively be deciding just how accessible the art would be (mags, creators, fans).

Josh Davis boosted

Offerings: subs to all mags at a reasonable discount, ability to buy bundles/curated mag selections by theme or genre, ab. to buy individual stories, ab. to gift mags/bundles to other people, a community managed library with issues/stories/bundles that can be “checked out.”

A community online library is super important because it fosters two cultural attitudes simultaneously: Art Has Value no matter the length or format & art should be accessible to everyone (without short-changing artists).

Josh Davis boosted

Cooperative associations have been done before (think Associated Press) and cooperative platforms also exist (think Resonate Coop). The spec mags would retain autonomy but would have a common platform to distribute as a community.
