Yesterday, our Show and Tell topic was creativity. However, we mostly talked about music!

We discussed many tools for creating and performing music, and some of us shared about our personal relationships with music and our tools of choice.

What a breath of fresh air!

We have liberating doodle-discussions at Show and Tell every Thursday at 3PM ET. Everyone is welcome!

@colombene gave an interesting show-and-tell at @agaric today about the datacommons.coop/ and the wireframes for their new Fabric data-sharing project xd.adobe.com/view/7be993cd-4bd

Any of y'all social.coop people connected to the datacommons project? If so, how do you intend to use it?

My good friends at @agaric announced their complete education service. As a privacy and free software advocate, and as an educator myself, I couldn't recommend what they do more. Check it out at agaric.coop/online-learning

join us at our weekly Show and Tell as we continue our discussion on de-platforming!

For more info on attending and joining our show and tell mailing list, visit:

Here are some questions to get you thinking:

Do you know anyone who has been de-platformed?

Who are they? How have they and their community been affected?

What can we do about it? As a community? As tech workers?

This week at Show and Tell, we discussed the politics of de-platforming, as well as alternative communication configurations, such as federated and p2p platforms. Check in with us next week on Thursday at 3PM Eastern as the conversation continues!

@LeoSammallahti @starbreaker@mastodon.art

I've been thinking of writing a blog post comparing the Find It Platform to Yelp. Because Find It is free and open source software, built between a cooperative ( @agaric ) and the City of Cambridge, co-designed with and for city residents, it serves local organizations in a truly beneficial way

as opposed to Yelp, which "serves" local businesses in a predatory way.

There are aspirations of Find It being a platform coop. I'll DM you to chat further! /cc @mlncn

@therealraccoon @agaric I personally am in Minneapolis now and while we have a huge overall co-op scene i don't know of any pan-coop federation nor of a specifically worker-coop network in the Twin Cities, but i'd love to be corrected or be part of forming one!

agaric boosted

@therealraccoon sure! @agaric is in the North American network techworker.coop/ (website out of date, but the group has re-activated and is actively adding members). We're also in the Boston Chamber of Cooperatives boston.coop/ which is for all kinds of cooperatives and i think is meant to include WORC’N, Worker-Owned and Run Cooperative Network of Greater Boston, worcn.org/ .. which we're also in and paying for the domain name & meetup group but it isn't active.

Back on the fediverse after a while to write some toots for @karrot , I remembered that I wrote a text for food saving/sharing groups making a case for them not to use Facebook for organizing and to choose free and open-source tools instead.

I make not only an ethical argument, but also explain why other tools are much better suited for these communities to grow and work properly:
