Hi folks! Great to be here! Had been looking to join social.coop for quite a while now. I'm very interested in the appropriate application of technology to the cooperative space.

Resonates with what I've been seeing - UBI is way for tech ppl to avoid grappling with the consequences of their actions. medium.com/s/free-money/univer

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.

Hey brain trust: what is the best membershiop management system that you're aware of. Was talking to my local food co-op's membership manager, and she feels there's a lack of good options in the space, so they have a nightmarishly customized CiviCRM. but she'd prefer something else.

This has me thinking again about the idea I tooted out a little while back, but wanting to figure out what's already out there before nudging towards reinventing any wheels...

Fucking pissed at white dudes in free software prioritizing exercising their free speech by showing "look, I can make jokes which affect people not like me" and then being like "free software is a movement for everyone"

Nobody has ever questioned whether *I* belong. But I've tried to bring in plenty of other people who left because they didn't feel welcome.

I believe in free software, I want it to be a movement for everyone. Most of these people would say "I do too".

SO FUCKING ACT LIKE IT.

Interested in talking to folks about etc.

Has anyone developed a CSA or buyers club app? For ordering, selling, scheduling, maybe also work shifts...

There should be a global 'awareness' week for developers. For a week reduce your RAM to 2 GB, disable all cores except 2, downscale your resolution to 1366x768 and cap your internet at 1 Mbps (or less for mobile developers)...

Maybe, just maybe we will start to have less crappy, bloated software.

Beginning June 11, no more free API key for Google Maps (now Google Maps Platform) if you don't provide a credit card.

A lot of custom Google maps that have been created over the years will likely no longer work.

Time to use #leaflet and #openstreetmap

A good day to reflect on Paine.

“Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best state is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer.”

It's nice that chicago and illinois are doing so well that we can start multi billion dollar luxury projects. This will certainly not end in a half constructed flooded tunnel that collapses under the city.
