The GEO Weekly Newsletter is out! All the #Cooperative goodness your little ❤️ could desire!
@GuerillaOntologist including a nice piece by you! Guilty as charged.
When I use the word ecosystem, as I way too often do, I can't help but think of that Adam Curtis Machines of Loving Grace movie and its critique of the term, the removal of agency.
I like the solidarity you call for. What protocols would you recommend to implement it?
I'm glad you liked it 😊
There is no simple answer to your question about protocols, at least not that I can think of - or rather, I can think of some but I don't think protocols are the place to start, tbh.
I'm inclined to believe (& other GEOdes seem to agree) that the place to start is w/ trust building & deepening relationships between cooperators on the local level. What we need is to build real intimacy, not just, say, have a shared spreadsheet of offers and needs.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
