I know I asked this earlier, but who's going to the #ECWD? I might want to share a hotel room.
Some notes on how #SocialCoop might be an inspiration to legacy co-ops: https://cmci.colorado.edu/medlab/2019/07/29/co-ops-from-lateral-to-vertical.html
On the need to distance oneself from Left political groups, as an anti-capitalist.

I wrote yet another thing. It's short.
#LuisRazeto's Facebook banning story gets more interesting. First FB said people have objected. Now they say his content violates their community standards ("El contenido infringe nuestras normas comunitarias".). I looked -- it is a series of slides, each presenting a different concept, such as
"Humanizing the Economy" or "Elites and Masses"
Razeto is asking people to upload slides that they like to whatever social media seem appropriate to them. I will upload some here and on FB...
@tbeckett I just discovered you're on the board of Shared Capital. Very cool! I'm a long-time friend of Adam Trott, even though I only ever see him at conferences.
Cooperator, interpreter and translator, Linux user, fair-trader, cyclist, husband and dad, not necessarily in that order.
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
