I've been overwhelmed with email from interesting strangers for ~3 yrs.

Testing new strategy today: removed my address from all public sites. Updated my website so you can call me free if you'll publish the convo, otherwise you pay.

What you think?

@GuerillaOntologist @wrb Here in Madison, we use the case of Isthmus Engineering all the time. During the Great Recession, they took rolling temporary layoffs and pay cuts, but no one was fired. Meanwhile, their competitors fired people left and right, and even closed down entirely. When the economy recovered, Isthmus was back up to speed immediately, while their competitors were gone or severely understaffed. Isthmus had record revenues for several years in a row, and are still well positioned.

Central Brooklyn Food Coop is finally happening! Help them get started with this Kickstarter 🙂

They're by and for a mostly black community, and are going to be working to improve the links between regional farms and the city. Big ambitions for a food coop, and a welcome alternative to the often-less-revolutionary Park Slope Food Coop.

GEO member Jim Johnson has led quite the interesting life of activism and development (as well as being a worker-owner for 10 years). He's got some well considered opinions on where the movement should be focusing its energy right now. Take the time to listen to this and I'm sure you won't be disappointed. :TwinPines:
