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.

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
Have you collaborated with other co-ops on projects? If so, how?
I'd especially love to hear examples that involve:
1. Cross-core competency (i.e. a design co-op working with a marketing or engineering co-op)
2. Differences between collaborating on a "revenue positive" project (i.e. billing a client) vs a speculative project (i.e. building a new product)
1. Set 3 months as our target runway.
2. Made income levels from "barely surviving" to "I can't imagine earning more."
3. Wrote what we would each need/want at each level.
4. Normalized everyone on the maximum per-level answer and multiplied by members.
6. Monthly we distribute at the level that gives us 3 months of runway with a 30% budgeted overhead.
How do you do it?
Jeremy Corbyn suggests 'gig economy' should be replaced by cooperatives
"Corbyn suggested "gig economy" firms like ride-hailing service Uber or food delivery firm Deliveroo could be replaced by co-operatives, in which drivers collectively set pay and conditions and share or reinvest the profits from their work.
He vowed that a Labour Government would promote cooperative groups with the aim of doubling the size of the sector."

I'm trying to figure out how to #mastodon,
Basically I have X accounts, where I join certain instances because their local seems ✨ ✨ ✨.
I intend to follow people on my main account, and use the sub-accounts to browse locals and post.
The instances are:
With some amount of cross-posting between them (for instance most have a tech overlap)

Oh, hey, here's some good news - there's a new law in CA that:
1. employers cannot ask prospective employees their prior salary information
2. employers must, upon asking, provide a salary range for the job in question
This is very good for employees, as they now have better information to work with.

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
