It would be cool if we all made a semi-commitment to post and interact here :TwinPines: all at the same time in synchronicity each week for one hour like every Saturday at 3 pm. Doing things together is easier than doing them alone. 😀

Back to @emi for admin duties for the week.

Exciting to see all of the interesting questions and discussions happening on loomio around Integrative Consent in decision making.

If you haven't already checked it out, please do! (we'd love to hear from you, but also.. no pressure 😀)

It's back to @emi taking over mod duties from @Matt_Noyes for the week!

Hope social.coop-ers are feeling engaged and happy with the instance.

It's been a bit of a slow start for me personally this year, but am very grateful to be connected with all these pockets of inspiration around the world through this instance.

Looking forward to many more opportunities for collaboration and co-creation this year!

Hope everyone is enjoying the last few days of the decade!

It's @emi taking the reigns for moderation from @Matt_Noyes as we transition social.coop from 2019 to 2020!

Looking forward to how this project continues to evolve.

Next edition of social.coop Happy Hour!

Informal debrief zoom chat on the recent Platform Cooperativism conference at the New School in NYC, with @LeoSammallahti @mattcropp @michaelafisher and other Social.Cooperators who participated. All are welcome to join.

December 7th @ 4pm EST!

Zoom link to be posted before the 7th! Hope to 'see' many of you on this call!

So happy to be here! Here's my : I'm a lifelong social justice activist and Fellow of the School for Social Entrepreneurs from the UK, currently involved in several initiatives that are transitioning into co-ops. I'm becoming very enthusiastic about co-ops and worker-ownership models as a way of democratising the economy and keen to meet like-minded people, exchange ideas, and help contribute to the movement! I'm also a big fan of decentralised social networks!

@emi is taking over the reigns as moderator for the week!

Please feel free to poke us on the admin account or toot @emi directly about... well... anything!

Thanks to @mattcropp for being on-call this week - passing the baton to @Matt_Noyes for the coming week!

Also, FYI to members that the proposal to appoint @wu_lee and @nicksellen as co-tech leads for a 6 month term passed the Tech WG, and the budget allocation is now subject to a ratification vote by the full membership. The vote will be open for 6 days on Loomio.

Tech WG Update and Vote 

@zanny
Anyways, this is why I'm thinking a consumer cooperative might make more logistic sense. A group of users organizing to hire who they need. Maybe (and definitely eventually!) a hybrid cooperative with developer and user needs administratively balanced. Wonder if there's anyone on @SocialCoop who could help set that up. @redoak @mattcropp any ideas?

What is social.coop? Who are we (it's members)? How do we contribute?

We've started a thread on loomio, where we will post one question every couple of weeks that will help us to get to know each other as members, with the objective of using this understanding of each other, our motivations and expectations to launch the next phase of social.coop.
