My first encounter with @mattcropp at Lab B's hackerspace. I was there with a group of Japanese students on a field study of solidarity economy. We met great folks: Diggers' Mirth, Champlain Housing Trust, Onion River Co-op, etc. (TBH the students' primary interest was the side trip to NYC.)
Long review, want to read it later: https://www.currentaffairs.org/2021/01/the-ministry-for-the-future-or-do-authors-dream-of-electric-jeeps

We made it! Immers Space is a real cooperative.

hey speaking of food (when am I not?): Sept 21-23 - Global People’s Summit (GPS) on Food Systems, a Global South-led counter-summit to the United Nations Food Systems Summit (UNFSS). The GPS will gather the broadest number of rural peoples, people’s organizations, CSOs, and advocates on-ground and online to develop a People’s Action Plan and draw up a People’s Declaration for the radical transformation of the current food regimes towards just, equitable, healthy, and sustainable food systems.

"#HongKong’s pro-democracy trade union coalition - Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions - is in the process of disbanding, its vice chairperson has told HKFP, becoming the latest civil society group to fold in the face of an intensified government crackdown. "
"We just launched a new offer from The Open Co-op, providing surveillance free #opensource email, powered by #RenewableEnergy: https://openweb.systems to help build the #coop #commons - hope you like it!?"
Looks good. Wonder how/if it connects to Meet.Coop? Can users have email aliases (addresses pointed to same account)? Are there multi-user accounts?
