Awesome interview with @ntnsndr

So much great stuff in Nathan's work. Some of my takeaways: Resistance movements need alternative building. Coops can be a means towards economic justice and social justice. Coops can go awry without a culture of commoning. Incubators and exit to community for growing coops.

Distinct lack of principles when it comes to the governance of most software commons. The culture and the tools suck. Feminist economics can help a lot.

Great read! 💜 ✨

Toward a Digital Economy That’s Truly Collaborative, Not Exploitative:
Overcoming the flaws of an internet controlled by a few major players will enable web services that are more democratic and fair.

"Not so long ago, as we contemplated the future of the internet, we wondered if we would see an online proliferation of Wikipedia-like platforms and grassroots network movements that would empower marginalized communities and give them a voice."

One take: "The development of commons-public partnerships as an alternative to the established public-private, following the Preston and Evergreen models, with DisCOs facilitating:

a. Municipal service provision for local economies.
b. FLOSS-built and open licensed, common-pool civic knowledge resources.
c. Practical workplace education on feminist economics, the commons, decentralized technology and the ethical market sectors offered by participating DisCOs."

“People ignore design that ignores people.”

-Frank Chimero, Designer-

More than a decade has passed since the introduction of what we know as blockchain technology. The promise of something truly disruptive has put it on everyone’s radar. But beyond all the hype and buzz about crypto currency… How could ordinary communities and individuals incorporate blockchain into their lives in a way that is helpful to them?

Feminist Future Programmes 💜:

"To survive in a capitalist society, we depend on paid work but also on all the activities that maintain our wellbeing. Stress, alienation & repetitive strain injuries are all everyday conditions of work under capitalism. It's only once our shift has finished that we're able to begin to heal some of the hurt produced by work under capitalism. But meeting our needs & compensating for stress & emotional harm is itself a form of work."

@CodingItWrong @irmalila

It really sucks. If we could agree on some local activist toolstacks we wouldn't have to do this.

What if we used Mobilizon instead of FB groups/events, Matrix/Element for chat, and - this is looking ahead a bit - Murmurations for resource sharing and mapping? (Not to mention Mastodon for microblogging.)

There are lots of possible tools.

@mike_hales and @disco_coop are the toolstackers I look to.
