I'm looking for help with a website for our media co-op. I've contacted several web design co-ops and also tried my networks here in Tokyo, but haven't had much luck.
It's a wordpress site that a novice (me, so please be kind) put together using some templates.
The issue is that it is multi-lingual and has a paywall. If anyone is available to help, I would be SO grateful.
We have a budget to pay someone for regular maintenance but it is more of a stipend than a wage...
just making coffee and some breakfast. let me know if you're still up for a chat, and no sweat if you're not!
🏔️ 💓 Alright!💓 🏔️
OrganaGardens Cooperative is formally established in Colorado, articles of incorp. filed, bylaws adopted, officers elected.
The organizing process started in October, with lots of ups & downs, but they seem to have stuck the landing. Lots of education still to be done, but great to see all those five finger votes (they use Fist to Five).
Thanks to @emi and my friend Dan Hobbs of the RMFU for supporting my work supporting their organizing.
I just published an interview with Alfredo Lopez, founder and long-time board member of May First, a co-op serving the technology needs of leftist movements. He talks about May First's vision, goals, governance, and more.

Both DisCOs and this article attempt to articulate the potential for tokens as a means for supporting the development of cooperatives, but I’m still not fully understanding how it could work in reality. Maybe it’s because I’m so confused about the hype behind the highly speculative world of cryptocurrency to begin with....
Just listened to this inspiring chat between two passionate young cooperators in Canada.
Makes me realize how much I would benefit from being more engaged in the greater cooperative movement instead of just slogging at it on my own in my little bubble.
I'm always pretty blown away by the awesome people on social.coop, but some days I get smacked on the nose with gratitude that I'm part of such a rad network.
WAHOOO can't wait to listen to them!
