#PlatformCoops + #Ireland Show more
I have long intended to host a #platformcoop meetup in Ireland - but with my existing commitments, I've never had the brain space.
Anyway, I still think it's something that should happen and I can contribute to finding speakers and venues (I believe I have both).
I've started to read "Ours to Hack and Own"
I've just come across this: Webarchitects Coop. They provide hosting, and software like gitlab, discourse, mediawiki. UK based. I'll have to check them out.
igalia is a worker-owned, employee run, Free Software/Open Source consultancy co-op.
The 11th AGM of the #OpenStreetMap Foundation will be on 9th Dec 2017! There will be 2 board seats up for election (no candidates yet)
Just when I thought it could be good to go to bed... I got a brilliant idea!
Now, I want a similar service, but for ebooks and audiobooks.
Of course, I can't code, I can only have visions. But I'm a member of a publishing coop, so we might already have one content provider already!
So how about it, who's in?
I haven't had the time to organise one - but (i) I know there are plenty of people interested, (ii) I know some #PlatformCoops that would participate, (iii) I have a venue and (iv) I might have a sponsor...
What I don't have is time haha.
I also set up a meetup page months ago https://www.meetup.com/PlatformCoop-Meetup/
The #Loomio team are doing a training session in Dublin, Ireland next week!
"Patterns of Decentralised Organisation"
Can everyone please give it a boost - so that we might get the #irish people on Mastodon to see it. :)
If nothing else, it flatly contradicts a lot of the basic tenets of capitalism. By seeing who agrees and who gets upset, you can get an idea of who your allies and enemies may be.

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
