I'm taking part in an innovation workshop aimed at general business and the lack of co-op representation on that platform is stark.

Is having an active profile a necessary evil?
Will posting and engaging with the LinkedIn community help further the cooperative movement?

Are you/can you recommend a co-operator that actively posts on LinkedIn?

Attn: UK cooperators 

There appears to be a sketchy "cooperative" social network being set up in your country. blossom.social. It appears to be the work of one guy looking to profit off the movement.

This bit in the Terms and Conditions is a big red flag (and not the good kind of red flag):

"The Co-Operative Social Network and all affiliated branding, logos and other related materials are the intellectual property of Tadgh Quill-Manley..."

I'd like a T-shirt with Corvid-19 on. The medical advice following, mutual aid loving, solidarity crow. Can anyone draw?

Our courier collective is still operating (non contact) during these grim times. We'd appreciate a follow on Instagram @yorkcollective if you could. Thanks!

I've got a reasonably sophisticated piece of positioning equipment (Spatial Dual INS) sitting around doing not much. Anyone know of any UK/EU projects that would be interested in collaboration?

Looking at alternative options to the usual SaaS options for a Library of Things/Tool Library platform. Woocommerce/wordpress peeps, is the hire/booking functionality of Woo a feasible option for a LoT?

We've got the ball rolling on the first on-demand Library of Things (in York, UK). Delivered by bike. A world first? facebook.com/lotyork

However, now stuck on how to cover the cost of incorporating the cooperative (~£400) to then put together a Community Share Offer. Hesitant to use the typical crowd funding platforms. Thoughts anyone?

The pitch: 

A library of things with on demand delivery.

40 years ago a small band of cab drivers, dispatchers, and mechanics set out to prove that the workers could run a taxicab company better than the bosses with a focus on living wages, a human and safe workplace, and a democratic environment. I spent almost 26 years there. Congratulations to all of the members of Union Cab past and present!

To the moon and back. Gusty Gibbon (inspired by Ubuntu release 7.10) traveled through time and space to attend the party. Brought everybody a piece of moon rock as a gift. 15th #ubuntu 🎂 #art #illustration #mastoart

What I really have in mind is finding some way into the field. Although unsure of the current demand for indoor positioning.
