Pitch for :

"Shared ownership is about more than property, it is about participation in all the key phases of a project, from conception, to operations, to sharing in the results. How can we organize democratic participation and engagement in a large organization, especially if it is decentralized, like a platform co-operative? I will share an organizing technique called the “member-to-member network” that has been used successfully by rank-and-file labor organizers."


Right. A propos, I just got @ntnsndr 's new book, which seems to be grounding shared ownership in deeper traditions of social transformation. I'll add it to the list.
