Super excited to see that @compost magazine's first issue is out!

Bookmarked: COMPOST Even as existing digital infrastructure fails to embolden truth or bring people together, we are hopeful. In Fertile Grounds we explore how our decaying web can help new networks flourish.

This debut issue of COMPOST magazine features writing and art about technologies, protocols, and communities that enable authentic and trustful connections.

To be clear, we are only offering this for Social.Coop members -- we want to help make it sustainable. If other Mastodon instances want to join Meet.Coop we would be happy to help facilitate that. (Although it's really pretty easy.)

Happy International Women's Day!

"What is care and who is paying for it? In her new book, The Care Crisis, Emma Dowling charts the multi-faceted nature of care in the modern world, from the mantras of self-care and what they tell us about our anxieties, to the state of the social care system. ... In this podcast she discusses care in its many forms with Rachel Holmes before a reading from the book by Amelia Horgan."

The State of Colorado seems eager to support employee ownership efforts. -- Of course nothing like the support they give the arms industry, for example. The co-op I am accompanying in their conversion process just got a small grant to help with the process.

“The existence of voluntary gatherings in which the driving forces of action escape the market and bureaucratic logics becomes a determining factor in the elaboration of institutions which draw their strength from “the power of social integration that solidarity represents,” and which foment public debate through the free formation of opinions; solidarity economy can be one way to engender such institutions.” (Jean-Louis Laville)
