Great chat with @GeorgeCheney and @emi about a writing project. Feeling happy to be in dialogue with thoughtful, caring, critical-thinking people.

Who all in is planning to attend the conference in NYC in November?

We've been given the opportunity for us to give a short (8 minutes) talk at the conference, and thinking it would be a good opportunity to do some community reflection and distill "lessons learned" from our journey thus-far that others might benefit from.

So, interested in social.coop folks' thoughts generally, and knowing who might be in the room and interested in co-presenting?

@luisrazeto has had his blog blocked by FB again for "containing content that others reported as offensive."

"Nuevamente facebook bloquea los posteos de mis escritos en el Blog de economía solidaria, cooperativa y colaborativa. El mensaje que recibo es éste: "No se puede enviar tu mensaje porque incluye contenido que otras personas de Facebook reportaron como ofensivo.""

P2P Accounting for Planetary Survival.

"today’s widespread obsession with smart contracts, platform capitalism and economies of scale... only serve to reinforce last century’s dominant and extractive modes of production. Instead, dive into this report and discover the possibilities of Ostrom contracts, platform cooperativism and economies of scope... the seeds of a generative commons-based economy that is fit for the 21st century’s social and ecological challenges."

A great transgender activist in town, who is working at the Humane Society, posted this photo on FB, after "a belligerently drunk dude whose buddy was wearing a shirt that read “In America we don’t redistribute wealth WE EARN IT”" came in to adopt a pet.

Small turnout for our Open House, could be because people hear "investing" and think Wall Street, but I suspect it is a symptom of an organizing culture that is too event focused. My plan is to put in another six months of one-on-one, face to face conversations with people, focused on deep listening, expanding the network of contacts.
Paul Bindel, of CSF, is wonderful by the way -- I really recommend him as a person to introduce the idea of cooperative investment clubs.
