Here's a thought: how about a workshop on "Open Source for Troublemakers" for the April Labor Notes Conference? The idea would be to a) highlight best practices, b) promote alternatives to corporate/surveillance tools, c) promote the commons/cooperation as real, effective means for rank-and-file organizing...

Yeah that's a good idea. Have some ideas for the reading group collaboration between and , let's hope that gets people interested.

We are not part of the Fediverse unfortunately. If there is someone who would/could make us part of it I'm sure it would be worth considering. Not sure if that's possible, as we are not decentralised.

Anyway, if needs to raise more funds to pay devs more, Community Grant provides an easy way to do so :)

, a social media is offering a community grant for .

We donate 1$/week for every Social Coop user who has made a post to WeCo that week.

20 users who post there at least once a week would mean over 1000$ extra funds for Social Coop a year. This can provide better pay for developers.

It can be about anything - sharing a link to a funny video, good song, interesting article.

Please volunteer here:

Probably the most useful tool I've ever learned to tackle a structural group problem is to brainstorm all the things that could be done and then organize them in 'low effort / high effort', 'low impact / high impact'.

Then do the 'high impact / low effort' things first, followed by 'low impact / low effort'.
Use the energy and momentum from those small successes for the 'high impact / high effort' things and just skip the 'low impact high effort' pitfalls.

On call this week for the Community Working Group.

PS: Anyone know any good books on the Jura Federation in the late 1800s?

_Finally_ got around to putting the operating agreement publicly online: zinc.coop/operating-agreement/

It's not perfect, but it's reasonably fair. We're planning to apply a number of patches throughout 2020; including one which more broadly opens up consumer membership.

I'm a moderator in this chat group about all things coop related.

The movement should build an ecosystem of social media groups, blogs, youtube channels and email lists that are interlinked and help people around the world to connect.

is a great example of exactly that.
