@chiematsumoto

!! Welcome!! great to see you here. Soon our instance -- social.coop -- will be open and, if you want, you can join us in our cooperative!

@emi is here too.

The custom on Mastodon is to post a self-intro so people know a bit more about you and your interests (no FB algorithm to do the work!)

"If you don't have the festival now or print the newspaper today, you simply lose the grouping, which is not a building in need of restoration but a movement in need of continuation. If a dancer stops dancing, the dance is finished. No inertia will carry the show forward."

is a movement in need of continuation, in this sense. Both here and in our other spaces (Loomio, Matrix, Git.coop, OpenColective, Zoom, Reading Group, Happy Hour...)

Going through the messy process of trying to come up with company values at the start up org where I currently work. Anyone have good resources on and ? Of course I'm coming in strong with the vibes and I'd love to convert my team ;)

If I want to tell someone about an alternative to Google Maps *in a browser*, where should I send them? OSM.org is extremely slow these days, and they display tons of notes by default. And I've recently learned that it is not supposed to be a front end for end users, just a repo for the data and a place to edit it.

So what's the real maps.google.com alternative for people just needing a map, travel reccommendations, etc?
