Hello! It's moderator @michaelafisher on for the week. Happy to see you all :TwinPines: 😉

Another gentle nudge for folks to update their loomio account with their social.coop handle :)

To do this, go to the MEMBERS tab on the social.coop loomio home page.

Find your name and click the three dots on the right hand side.

Select "set title".

Some folks have been adding their social.coop handle to their profile instead of changing their title- it really helps to have the handle as the title so we can connect loomio members to social.coop users!

"We should care less about whether something is centralized or decentralized than whether it is accountable. An accountable system is responsive to both the common good for participants and the needs of minorities; it sets consistent rules and can change them when they don't meet users needs" Nathan Schneider

Hello my friends! It's @michaelafisher moderating for the week. Shout out to everyone putting together cool online coop content these days! Keeping me entertained and hopeful for a better future <3

It's @emi back on moderation duties for social.coop this week!

i've been so inspired by all of the great posts regarding co-op responses to COVID-19 and overall outreach that is happening at the moment.

every co-op is only as (insert adjective here) as it's members! toot, create and initiate to help social.coop reflect the kind of co-op you would like it to be!

Hey peeps! @mattcropp is on moderation duty this week. Hope things are well where you are!

@michaelafisher moderating this week! Hope you're all staying safe 💕 :TwinPines:

In case you haven't logged on to loomio in a while, we're asking social.coop members to update their profile with their social.coop username since it's hard to know who is who!

We have a check poll going and so far 19 members have updated! Thank you!!

@emi back to taking on moderating duties for social.coop.

Also...
@GuerillaOntologist and @Jon_Envisioneer launched a virtual co-working time a couple of weeks ago. Anyone interested in doing something similar now that many more people around the world are working remotely?

The Community Working Group Ops Team had a great meeting to update some documentation today, including Loomio group descriptions for the CWG and main page!

P.S. This is @mattcropp, who is on-call this week. :)

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!
