I'm starting a series of interviews with co-op folks, to learn about their stories and the stories of their cooperatives.

My first convo is with @zspencer@twitter.com, talking about his experiences with @WeCohere@twitter.com and @ZincCooperative@twitter.com.

petition to pool funds together to buy twitter.com and turn it into a mastodon instance.

Given the wave of new activists into the left, and the fact that stakes are high right now, posting this reminder:

Using copjacketing as a vehicle to grind a sectarian axe is a violation of a vital piece of the social contract of left activism that makes everyone less safe.

It's a hard-won lesson that needs to be remembered and upheld.

Dear #Mastomind: Is there a good, current, #FreeSpeach / #FreezePeach & the #Fediverse document highlighting expression and oppression considerations and experience?

is there a mastodon instance that's only for capybara content

Or I guess one could also incorporate some of the "worker" emojis?

I wish there were better emojis to express "cooperation" or "cooperatives".

The best I've been able to come up so far is some combination of 馃 and maybe 馃鈥嶐煠濃嶐煣., maybe like so: 馃鈥嶐煠濃嶐煣戰煠濔煣戔嶐煠濃嶐煣.

If I stretch it, maybe even one of the "family" emojis, like 馃懇鈥嶐煈┾嶐煈︹嶐煈,, and pretend that it is a "group of people". 馃し馃徏鈥嶁檧锔

Whole thread is 馃挴, but here is the gist 馃憞馃徏

RT @zspencer@twitter.com

So, would you, could you, consider becoming an Investor-Owner in the East Bay Permanent Real Estate Cooperative? Help them secure permanently affordable, multi-generational, multi-family housing owned by it's residents and community?

"This made both perfect sense and absolutely no fucking sense at all, the sort of demented-timeline event that could only happen in 2020, when everything is, metaphorically, an innocent piece of pasta turned into a straw in a bid to help the environment that actually ends up being fatally dangerous."

Someone give this woman the pulitzer. 馃樄

The real pandemic shortage!

"SNL star and Vulture alum Bowen Yang lamented to W magazine, 鈥淭here鈥檚 more of a bucatini scarcity problem than there is a toilet-paper issue, I think.鈥"

"When cooked correctly, bucatini bites back. It is a responsive noodle. It is a self-aware noodle. In these times, when human social interaction carries with it the possible price of illness, bucatini offers an alternative: a social interaction with a pasta."

Amazing piece on the very real bucatini shortage.
