I just published a delightful conversation with @FreeScholar. She shares her experiences with @agaric, cooperativism, free software, and much more.

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 🀝 and maybe πŸ§‘β€πŸ€β€πŸ§‘., maybe like so: πŸ§‘β€πŸ€β€πŸ§‘πŸ€πŸ§‘β€πŸ€β€πŸ§‘.

If I stretch it, maybe even one of the "family" emojis, like πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦,, and pretend that it is a "group of people". πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
