Anybody else as skeptical as I am about this?
I mean, call me crazy, but I just don't trust people who are admittedly only in it for the money to actually operate int he best interests of the workers. Seems awfully naive to me. Am I the only one?
@BeechMtn Vernon Oakes has had the “Everything Co-op” radio show in DC for years & I believe that they are going to finally put it into RSS distribution.
Had a chat with a co-owner of one of my fav eateries here - and she made time for me during lunch rush - and learned that she was very interested in broader worker ownership. Made my day.
Worker owned sex shop. What's not to like?

Hello fellow #coops supporters. I'm currently writing a book on coops and digital and I'm looking for interesting examples of what coops can do with the help of digital, whether it is for strengthening governance, sharing knowledge about the coop model, managing members data, ... don't hesitate to get back to me, I want to give examples of best practices in the book so that it can help the coop movement as a whole

Is it bad karma to post a fb link?
So...this is weird. The "back" button on my local timeline is acts exactly like the back button on my browser, i.e. it sends me to the last website in my history. Not what I was expecting... Feature or bug?
The problem with converting normal businesses to worker co-ops is that the current owners have to go along with the idea....or do they?
Good review of the new book Jackson Rising on the Black Agenda Report:
Just heard that the CEO of #Vermont Electric #Coop (one of the most progressive electric #coops in the country) is running for #vt governor! If she wins the primary in August, she'd be the first #trans woman to be a major party nominee for governor of a US state, and would definitely be a huge co-op advocate. 🤞
Just saw that Gene Sharp, the great advocate of non-violent direct action has died. https://www.aeinstein.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Albert-Einstein-Institution-Press-Release-1.30.18.pdf
