On Thursday at 3PM Eastern,
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:

agaric.coop/show

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!

@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 @agaric is in the North American network techworker.coop/ (website out of date, but the group has re-activated and is actively adding members).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:

Karen Miller, an old friend, comrade, and CUNY prof started a co-op online homeschool a few months ago. Thousands of kids have participated. I plan to interview her for GEO... homeschoolcoop2020.com/

Wow, there is a whole public conversation going on inside the Creative Commons copy of 'Twitter & Teargas' via hypothes.is

Now that's what I call hypertext

And message Agaric here or via agaric.coop/ask for 15% off these trainings for Mastodon people. Y'all rock!

We're still putting on both the migration trainings we were set to give at — like most of the Drupal activities that would have happened in Minneapolis, learning about migrating data and content into Drupal 9 will now happen online!
