We created a module called Give, that allows site owners to create donation forms, and manage donations from within the site itself.

Here's a breakdown of how it works agaric.coop/blog/build-and-man

another thing i want to work on is creating an economic network inside the fediverse.

by this, i don’t mean something like bitcoin or some other method of value exchange, but instead solving a more fundamental problem.

the fediverse is largely comprised of people who have small businesses (like bespoke commissions, etsy stores, small companies, etc.), but we don’t have any way of discovering who can sell or provide what you’re looking for.

i want to try to find solutions to this problem — keeping $ flowing inside the fediverse, from participant to participant, helps indirectly to fund fediverse development: if there’s more $ flowing inside the fediverse, then there’s more opportunity for that $ to make it into the hands of the people building the network. also, keeping the $ inside the fediverse helps to more directly benefit fediverse participants in general. it’s a good situation for everyone.

keeping more of the $$$ inside the fediverse is a very early step toward building a self-reliant fediverse, which contributes to the eventual death of the nation-state.

Ok, so this isn't the most visually exciting piece of video content GEO has ever created, but listening to Jessica Gordon-Nembhard speak is always worth the time.

Toot, toot ... and we're off! Hi Mastodon community. We're so excited there's this open source and decentralised social network to be a part of. It aligns nicely with our values. We believe in having open source alternatives to all the big names out there 😉

My new paper tries to identify some of what is lost as market-based "sharing economy" platforms increasing replace socially-oriented systems based on actual sharing: mako.cc/copyrighteous/what-we- (The paper was led by @notconfusing who will present it at @CSCW next month!)

Portside.org & the Fediverse questions

1. Would you follow them if they posted their articles here?

2. Would you comment on articles they posted? Would you be more likely to post if your comment was shared back via webmentions? (indieweb.org/Webmention)

3. Anything else Portside could do to further independent journalism and the fediverse?

One of our clients is Portside.org , a curated news site for the left.

Are there ways they could bring value to the and ?

My mind is a bit blown by learning about the “Drupal Gutenberg” project to make the #Gutenberg editor be a block editor on top of #Drupal. Rather than just being for #WordPress, one of the people spoke about Gutenberg as the “editor for the open web”.

I like that vision! And I like working with Gutenberg as an editor.

[NOTE: I don’t use Drupal myself. I’m building sites on #WordPress. I just think this is a great development.]

social.coop is 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]
