I've been on Mastodon over at
I'm based in the UK and into food, land, tech and people collaborating to manage them.
I'm involved in a few projects -

ourfieldproject.org/ 40 people using online tools to collaborate managing a field

travellingtoolbox.org.uk/ is a mobile hackspace/workshop set up to help environmental & community projects build & fix tools and infrastructure

farmhack.org/wiki/soilhack-wik Soilhack is a peer 2 peer learning network

Taxpayers to foot £200bn bill for PFI contracts.

"After 25 years of PFI, there is still little evidence that it delivers enough benefit to offset the additional costs of borrowing money privately"

"An analysis of costs for building one group of schools “found costs are around 40% higher than the costs of a project financed by government borrowing,” auditors said."

Part 3
These are some of the policies which have arisen organically out of local community struggles in many countries around the globe. We want to see projects like fairbnb build workers' and poor people's needs and protagonism in to the platform cooperative model from the start, to integrate movements for housing justice in the development of new cooperative approaches. Do you work with housing justice organizations? Is that something you would like to do more of?

I'm working on a draft proposal for converting our UK based online farm management collective into a not-for-profit open online co-operative society to promoting co-operative farm governance & more sustainable farming.


The link on our site to our Loomio is broken, its at -


Interested in anyones thoughts or advice, feel free to comment here, or using whatever method you see fit in the draft scratch pad

Fascinating sprawling discussion on counter anti-disintermediation, decentralized social media, decentralized infrastructure, politics of coops, mesh networking.


Two thoughts spring to mind:

- Mastodon isn’t great for reading a threaded discussion
- Seems a shame all this great discourse is destined to just eventually slide off a timeline, what's to be done about that?

I write my newsletter then pre-schedule a tweet or two asking people to sign up to my newsletter. But I can't pre-schedule a toot...can I? Something else to add to my list of to-dos "Find all the replacements for my workflow". Maybe @dajbelshaw will tell me what to do next week :) laurahilliger.com/newsletter/

Of course I'd love to work full-time on so even at this early stage I think about how the project might facilitate that.

My initial thoughts follow the typical paths (kits, kickstarter, patreon, etc.) but reading "Ours to hack and own" has me wondering if there is a co-op approach to this.

I have a couple ideas but it's all pretty fuzzy. I'm wondering if any of the folks here have any thoughts, or have seen something like this done before?

Idea: a Friday of the best mastodon interactions you've had during the week. Summarize and link to the conversation, and add you might have forgotten at the time.

is a very manual process on Mastodon, for better or worse, so let's develop some habits to make easier.

Here is an interesting thought to post to a mastodon instance. From Dmytri Kleiner via P2P Foundation:

"Going back to an early Internet architecture of cooperative, decentralized servers, as projects such as Diaspora, GNU Social, and others are attempting to do, will not work. This is precisely the sort of architecture that anti-disintermediation was designed to defeat. Decentralized systems need to be designed to be counter-anti-disintermediationist."

"Fork the Economy" by @Rushkoff

"I've given up on fixing the economy. The economy is not broken. It's simply unjust. There's a difference.

We have to stop looking at our economy as a broken system, but one that is working absolutely true to its original design. It's time to be progressive -- and this means initiating systemic changes."

There's some even beefier #RISCV #Freedom platforms by #SiFive.

At 1.6 GHz, 64-bit and up to 8 cores each SoC, (as well as gigabit Ethernet, USB 3, PCIe 3, and DDR4) it looks to be competitive with #x86 zombies.

Just need some awesome new #FOSS computing environment on there!
