Video of @FreeScholar LibrePlanet keynote is now up!
This talk is loaded with both terrifying examples of the creeping surveillance capitalism we live in and inspiring counter examples to get us free in this digital world.
Our latest blog post from @clayton ,
How Stewarding the Digital Commons Keeps Your Software Secure, Stable and Innovative
an especially good read for groups who use #freesoftware but need help seeing the value of it and contributing back.
We have connections to get folks free tickets. Message us if you're interested!

A software cooperative near me is hiring a new developer - part-time with potential to grow to full-time and co-ownership! Women, people of color, and under-represented groups are encouraged to apply. Deadline March 1st.
We created a #Drupal 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 https://agaric.coop/blog/build-and-manage-online-donations-drupal-give-module

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.
@nestor Amazing! Glad to find some kindred spirits here in the fediverse.
2018 was quite the year. In this post we reflect on the ups and downs and our intentions for 2019.
The results are in for the members to serve on the #CiviCRM Committee to establish more democratic governance over the project.
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 😉
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
