The conversation covers her background, the turnaround of the electric co-op from near bankruptcy, and thoughts on unique elements of co-op leadership.
If elected, she'd also be the first #trans governor in the US.
Of course, when talking #coops and #tools I'm thinking of social.coop too. If social.coop exists to cooperatively own and operate tool platforms (did I get that right?) . . what other tools than Mastodon will come under the umbrella? And which kinds of users will they be tools for? Tech nerds? Coders? Ordinary everday folks? P2P/solidarity economy activists? Etcetera. Diverse use cases, can't serve 'em all well?
"An Indigenous opera singer is bringing back his community's traditions and songs...
The classically-trained tenor used wax cylinder recordings of his ancestors singing in the early 1900s, which had been locked away in the national archive for decades.
Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa — translated as "Songs of the River People" — is sung entirely in Wolastoqey, a language fewer than 100 people speak."

Can someone recommend an approach to make a simple/lightweight/unincorporated co-op to turn our hosted foodsaving software (https://karrot.world/) into something like a platform co-op?
At the moment we administrate the server/instance without any clear structure... would like something more like social.coop.
A short constitution + a loomio group?

Reagan was wrong. The most terrifying words in the English language are, “we’ve been sold to private equity.”
"Be unclassifiable. Sticking a label on a human being transforms them, distorts them, reduces them, alters their essence. To define is to imprison."
"Sé inclasificable. Quien pega una etiqueta en un ser humano lo transforma, lo falsea, lo reduce, altera su esencia. Definir es enjaular."
Hi everybody! Working with a self-managed Croatian #workercoop the last 3 years, me and a good friend have been producing customized #t-shirts and other garments for music bands, trade unions and inviduals.
Now we are exploring the #platformcoop world looking for inspiration, join forces with like-minded people and eventually create more impact!
I believe in grassroots worker activism, enjoy a good meal and play the drums in a band :)
Looking forward to this! #socialcoop
After a day of feeling frustrated under gross fluorescent lights of a windowless grad student office...

now time for bed...
A really cool episode of the podcast 99% Invisible, describing both the insecurity that people living in mobile homes face, and the growth of a movement of cooperative ownership amongst mobile home owners.

social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
