I think we need to develop a smartphone app that allows users to find and connect to solidarity economy organizations in Colorado, maybe starting on the Front Range.
Colorado.coop is a good start, but we need something more user-focused and easy to use so people can quickly find coops, credit unions, social enterprises, etc.
I suppose step one is recruiting a team to brainstorm this or maybe organizing a meet-up to talk about it.
Theres also these which point towards moving away from using google maps (you give ownership of data to google and the agreement/license doesnt allow export of data sets)
A couple of solidarity economy mapping projects
finally http://transformap.co is worth exploring.
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
