A 1980 study from Denmark notes there was a worker owned "computer cooperative".
Was this the first worker owned tech cooperative in the world/Europe/Nordic countries?
Gonna try to look more into the story of this #coop.
Cooperative financial institutions, such as credit unions and cooperative banks proved to be more stable during the financial crisis.
Read more about what research reveals about the benefits of #coop banking in a new article "Why Banking needs a co-operative revolution" on Mutual Interest, an online media #coop owned by the readers and writers.

"But if one wants a demonstration of the relative effectiveness of pro- or anti-nuclear stances in delivering greenhouse gas reductions one need only look at France and Germany. For each unit of electricity generated Germany emits almost 10 times as much carbon as does France."

Wordpress plugin that allows you to create a box with list of articles that the reader can either:
1) Click separately
2) Click on a button "Open All Articles In Tabs".
So you could open a series of articles into tabs with one click instead of opening each into a tab separately.
Might increase pageviews per reader.

"...the only decisively positive trend affecting labor in recent decades: the massive growth of worker pension funds, which amount to somewhere between $3 and $6 trillion, depending on how one does the math.”
“It is ironic that much of what may survive of the labor movement in the twenty-first century is its capital.”
Excerpt From: David Webber. “The Rise of the Working-Class Shareholder”.
Recent idea I'm going to run with for a bit: a #WorkerCoop revolving matching equity fund.
Basically, the fund will match 1:1 (or more?) the member shares of worker-members of co-op conversions with an investment of non-voting preferred shares. The shares will pay a dividend equal to the WSJ prime rate, the co-op can buy them back at face value at any time. The proceeds go back into the fund to be used for supporting future co-op buy-outs. ♻️
