Assume a radical commitment to freedom and accessibility. Call it Software Anarchism. Support the 4 Opens with open source and open data being specifically relevant. Forget the tech for a second. What does that look like socially? How do we build that under capitalism?
I think we have the tools already to do it, but we're not having conversations about labor and money yet in a way that leads to action
@xj9 @AceNovo @grainloom @clacke for what it's worth, myself and my team are working on the housing/powergrid part of this (#walkaway in general, but sustainable microhousing in particular), for whatever that's worth.
Not quite to a point where our research/documents are available online, but...this summer.
Definitely this summer.
My focus is social technology, which tries to answer the question, "What kind of human interaction is going to happen around this technology?"

Nice work, coopting the franchise concept. Let me know if there's something I can do to pitch in. I have a really diverse tech, volunteer, and community management background and a little experience in small business
It's also been mentioned that there's a need for personal business networking on the fedi. Something between value flows and the current ad hoc associations

I keep meaning to respond to this; been fighting a lot of software fires recently.
I started typing a response but it got too long, so I posted on Hubzilla instead: https://firstname.lastname@example.org
In any case, thanks in advance for any help or thoughts you might have.
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
