@ntnsndr Has Social.Coop ever received any grants from foundations?
Are you in the process of unionizing? Do you work in tech?

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...

For people who have been asking about how to start new mutual aid communities: I've just published my current thinking about how to start well + a major update for #microsolidarity plans for 2020.
It's a big one. Please tag folks and RT 😘
Urgent: Open Collective says #SocialCoop needs to change fiscal hosts. Thread: https://www.loomio.org/d/U7uvGdqF/should-social-coop-switch-its-open-collective-host-to-platform6-/38
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.
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.

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.

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 #coop 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.
#SocialCoop is a great example of exactly that.

Don't know if there are any #BillyStrings fans in our corner of the Fediverse... (I also recommend Molly Tuttle)
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
