Super exciting to see the #Coops movement growing!
Economic Justice Barbarian - A social game that explores using privilege to take daily, small risks and help everyone get what they need.
It's not perfect, but it's reasonably fair. We're planning to apply a number of patches throughout 2020; including one which more broadly opens up consumer membership.
Did some infrastructure work this morning for #ZincCoop:
I added the #ghpages and #ncp node modules to the website so we have seams to apply templates / internationalize / etc when building the site.
Fixed a redirect loop caused by #Cloudflare/#GithubPages fighting
Discovered #ghpages wasn't working quite right and added some debug info:
Now it can handle _even more_ Apple In App Purchase event notifications! https://github.com/zinc-collective/compensated/issues/23
We had been waiting on adding support for these event them until we had real payloads; but eventually decided that it was probably worth adding in the support now since we're beginning to turn it on for production users.
If anyone is interested, here's a draft of the mechanisms #ZincCoop is using to operate as a multi-stakeholder cooperative
We're a worker-only cooperative at the moment ("directors") but I'm hoping to figure out the legal bits aorund contributor and community owners once I have a bit more bandwidth.
It's still early-alpha, but I'm hopeful to have a bit more bandwidth for defining features, accepting contributions, and driving features forward now that most of the finance and legal stuff has been ironed out for #ZincCoop.
The next release of the app will include the license text, as well as bring improved support for modern devices and iOS 13.
#ZincCoop believes customers have the right to exercise direct control of software they've purchased; and that sustainable economic models for user-facing software can include broadly permissive licensing.
Recommend me a CPA/Bookkeeping #Coop that works remote and has diverse leadership?
#bitcoin #finance #crypto #coop
The premise of <coin X> as a digital gold standard is almost as sound as gold being a reasonable standard; however the hybrid of FUD/Excitement about it makes it prime for a crash; and then the absurdity of ICOs mean Crypto is going to burst hard. If it bursts *before* 2018 that's good for everyone, if it bursts *after* 2018 it's bad for everyone because that's when public markets can buy into crypto; which will wipe out billions in retirement funds.
just paid an artist and a bunch of authors. always feels really good.
if you're interested in helping me to keep doing this, the lit journal i run has a patreon and we'd love more support! our ultimate goal is paying pro rates to our all involved.
in brief: Luna Station Quarterly is a speculative fiction magazine featuring stories by emerging women-identified authors. we're now in our 8th year!
Hallo #Coop buddies!
An online community I belong to is centered around solo/micro-entrepenuers. While we're not a formal cooperative, we frequently swap leads, bring one another on for consulting gigs, etc.
We've been talking a bit about how we could make a product together. Do you have any thoughts/links to resources on:
1. Tracking time and attention directed at the product in an equitable way?
2. Distributing income based upon that time/attention investment?
Thanks <3 <3 <3

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
